Tai Bwo Wannai Village is located south of Brimhaven, deep in the jungle of Karamja. It is home to a number of villagers. However, it does have a problem with its location, as the surrounding jungle always seems to be trying to grow back over where it once was.
Broodoo victims sometimes attack the village as part of the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, but most people just run from them, because they are very strong for their level, have high defence to most things except their weaknesses, and they disappear very rarely. They also cast stat-weakening spells.
The village deals primarily in trading sticks and is the only place to trade in them.
Getting there[edit | edit source]
- From the Karamja lodestone (accessed via the Home teleport spell after the lodestone has been activated) head south.
- A fairy ring (code CKR) is situated to the south (requires partial completion of A Fairy Tale II - Cure a Queen).

- The tribal statue in the centre of the city resembles a Moai, one of the many monolithic statues on the Chilean island of Rapa Nui.
- During the quest My Arm's Big Adventure, Murcaily states that he has never heard of a troll before. This implies that the village may not know about any races off the island.

- In the local language, Tai Bwo Wannai means "small clearing in the jungle".
