SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
Kuoom is born from two words KU and OOM.
KU is related to the Mayan god HUNAB KU, god of everything and nothingness and on the other hand OOM, sacred syllable in Hinduism and Buddhism to start and end the meditation practice. It expresses that maximum connection between the physical and the mental, for us, it is an expression of relaxing, letting go, flowing, feeling…
Kuoom is the place where animals merge with nature and we merge with them .
