Yoga, Walking & Nature Retreat – Description

Passionate about wildlife, nature and keen to learn more about trees, birds, African art, archaeology and the star encrusted milkyway in this pristine mountain setting where you can walk amongst the animals? Then this retreat is for you. Our retreat base is a unique eco village situated on a mountain plateau with breathtaking views over the valley below. The accommodation, all en-suite, is in cosy, chique, thatched mud huts in a tribal village setting.

Following this retreat there is an optional 4 day post-retreat Safari – an opportunity to soak up a little more nature and allow the learning and camaraderie from the retreat to linger longer.
