Do Things That Feed Your Soul
Go Beyond The Ordinary
Life seduces you tirelessly for no other reason than to open and surprise you. It invites you to acknowledge that all the locks on your doors are unnecessary. It lures you with all its forms and colours to soften your walls. And life shines unmistakably, unfolding anew each day. This unique African yoga safari plays Casanova, while the meditations will create space within to indulge in all the radiant splendor around you.
The breathtaking landscapes of the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands, the majestic giraffe, walking for hours through infinite space and nature’s silence, meditating amongst impalas and zebras, delicious dishes prepared by local chefs to nourish and satisfy you, the smell of burning wood, the wondrous African sunset, and the sound of a roaring lion in the middle of the night in the Serengeti… all these are the ingredients and undeniable seducers of this unique safari experience. They will surprise your eyes, awaken your ears, tingle your skin, and they will arouse your very being by their scents and tastes.

Option 2: Single occupancy £2300
