About Tarpo Events

Our team of experts can start with a crumb of a vision and create a phenomenal experience

Who we are

We’ve been in the Events Management business in Kenya since the 1980’s. We started by offering tents for hire for private parties, school functions and commercial events. Since then we’ve come a very long way! Now we provide full-circle event management services and still offer equipment for hire for private parties, school and corporate functions, mobile camping safaris, expos, sporting events, festivals and commercial events.


Many of our team have been at Tarpo for 20 years give or take. Our corporate culture was built on the back of this team: reliable and passionate, living the brand.

Kenya’s biggest events

We’re associated with some of Kenya’s most well known events: the Rhino Charge and the Bizarre Bazaar Craft Festivals. You’ll also have seen our equipment at the Lewa Marathon.


Tarpo’s Events division has two distinct categories: camping and party, because historically we had camping tents and party tents.


On the camping side we hold equipment to accommodate up to 300 people in luxury and semi-luxury serviced mobile safari camp set ups.

On the party side we have over 200 tents and marquees in various sizes including the aluhalls.

All our equipment and tents for hire are available on a long and short lease basis.


Luxury camping provides an out of the box experience for weddings, team buildings and sporting events. If you’re looking for a reliable and practical service provider with years of experience in the field that would be us. Read a case study here.


Meetings, Incentives, Conferencing and Exhibitions (MICE) Events, corporate events, product launches, private parties, weddings, and temporary shade requirements are all things we’ve been dealing with since the 1980’s. We keep it practical and affordable and best of all we work WITH you to realise your event’s vision.
