Journey back in time and experience the real Livity of the Rastafarian culture first hand. Begin with a fresh juice at Zimbali and then the journey begins. Through the sugar cane, cross the river- 1st stop is 'Gracie's Spring'- the giver of life to this area for 100's of years. Fill your water bottles at the natural spring and then hike up into the hills to "Fire's Farm"- over 25 years of fruits trees, food and love in the making. Reason, Relax,and Reconnect w/ Nature as your loving host shares his lifestyle with you. Let your mind drift with the smoke of the fire...Slip into the rhythm of the coconut being gratered by hand for your "Ital" meal- your tastebuds are in for a real treat. This is a true once in a life time Cultural Experience! Suiteable for all ages. $35/person-includes great lunch! Round/Trip Transportation from Negril $15/person

Food was incredibly delicious and fresh. Tour of the grounds was a very special experience. African drumming was the crowning touch. The only surprise for us was that there was an extra fee added at check out for the ride to/from. Nothing to freak out...More
