The main aim of this project is to allow Men, Women and Children, especially of the diaspora to experience living in harmony with Mother Nature, off-grid, deep in the jungle of Ghana, Africa. Experiencing village life and the challenges, unity, empowerment, and freedom that comes with living self sustainably on the Motherland.

As a family we have faced many challenges here in Ghana, all of which has simultaneously healed and strengthened us. Although Jerelle and i both have pioneering and courageous spirits, we are not naive to the fact that if we had the support we are offering at that time, it would've made such a positive impact on our journey and transition to freedom thus far.

We have been living in a tent for the past 9 months, whilst we complete the building of our home and ongoing projects here at LYFE. This has been (and still is) an epic project for us, navigating day to day life here in Ghana with a young family, becoming contractors, architects, project managers, the builders, landscapers, farmers... and the list continues. Going with Mother Natures flow and acclimatising to the extremes in weather on the equator, in a jungle environment - electrical rain storms in a canvas tent are not for the faint hearted!

With that being said, what started as a calling has become a true adventure, exhilarating, challenging, and euphoric, and yet simple, purposeful and peaceful.

Our intention is to offer this life changing opportunity to all, you deserve to have your very own rites of passage here on the Mother Land, at LYFE.

It truly does take a village to raise a child, and we hold the belief that by collaborating our efforts with you, as a community we will also manifest our vision. We are optimistic and ambitious, so we have faith that LYFE will be open to receive guests by late 2022.

About us:

We are the Kiing's, our families journey to Ghana was an act of pure faith.

The moment we decided to leave the UK it was all systems go, we were packed up, flights booked, covid tested (reluctantly and ready for our new adventure all within 3 months.

I vividly remember feeling an intense excitement, extreme anxiety and fear simultaneously as we arrived at the airport. Not knowing what to expect from Ghana because we had never been there before.

I knew we would face challenges, but there was no way I could've prepared myself for what what was about to come. We have had so many life changing profound and transformational experiences, to say it has been challenging would be a complete understatement, but homelessness was by far my least favourite experience especially with 3 young children.

We have been in many uncomfortable situations in regards to our accommodation, we haven't always been welcome or even felt safe and in regards to buying land in Ghana, well let's just say it's been a rollercoaster.

So that's a little insight into our back story.

18 months and 5 potential lands later, we are the proud and grateful owners and stewards of 1.8 acres of beautiful "bush" land, lovingly landscaped to our vision of paradise.

Our intention was to always have a self sustainable home, grow all of our own food, live in harmony and reconnect with nature, provide ourselves with ever conceivable convenience, without compromising on our health, raise our children in freedom, and for us all to be free to discover who we truly are, nurtured by the ultimate teacher Mother Nature.

We surrendered and were taken on a healing journey, a series of initiations that we refer to as a "Rites of Passage" it is this Rites of Passage combined with all the experience and wisdom that we have acquired, to be able to offer to others who are ready to receive.\


"Its brings me great joy, to be in a position to share my blissful co-created home, healing, peace and freedom to humanity" - Jerelle (Age 33)

"Ever since I was a young boy, I dreamed of being able to change the world, quickly realising in order to do so I had to change myself, now I live naturally in Africa, I can now share this change with the world" - Daniel (Age 42)

"I never wanted to live in the bush, it has been a long journey of twist and turns, which has helped me to grow and change as a person. it's an experience i now believe everybody should have, i am started to enjoy my experience and i now have friends." - Tian (Age 15)

"Its very very very, so so so good" - lil Daniel (Age 4)

"Hmmm its different from living in London in the city, its very fun trying new things in Ghana, in nature I get to be wild, i climb trees and jump on things and play with wood, and collect water. make sure you are fully prepared to come and live in nature" - Akelle (Age 6)
