Where ?

Limpopo Province

The Limpopo province, South Africa : a land of beautiful and contrasting landscapes. A region of infinite scenic beauty with a great diversity of both natural and man-made attractions; a rich cultural heritage and an abundance of wildlife. Within one of the best conserved wilderness areas, lies the opportunity for a life-changing experience. Immerse yourself deep into nature, practise the art of yoga, Tapping, self-awareness and meditation in a safe and nurturing environment.

Timbavati Game Reserve

The Timbavati Game Reserve provides a rare chance to still appreciate true wilderness, its wildlife and the sense of freedom that emanates from it. It was formed in the 1950s, when a group of conservation-minded private game park owners on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park decided to pool their resources for their mutual benefit as well as that of the wildlife in the area. This reserve is legendary for its frequent Elephant sightings, as well as Leopard and rare African Wild Dog.

Food

  • The retreat is vegetarian.
  • You will be provided with a metallic water bottle and drinking water for your retreat (we encourage you to practise self-consciousness about the use of plastic).
  • For alternative dietary requirements, please consult with us.
