Transformation is a journey of self-discovery that begins with stepping away from the old you and discovering a more expanded, energised and resourceful self. And what better setting to evoke this expansion than the wide-open spaces of natural wilderness ? Nature is also a place of nurturing and safety where you and your clients can feel supported in your processes and find inspiration and guidance.

Wellness & Relaxation

Massotherapy, spa treatment, reiki, shiatsu, arts, yoga, pilates, qicong…

A mat, a few light clothes, your good vibe and off you go, immersing yourself in nature for a few days guaranteed to stretch body and mind. Start your day with an early reiki session accompanied by antelopes, zebras and elephants grazing in the background. Enjoy healthy foods and smoothies between sessions and after meditative walks through the surrounding wilderness.

Express yourself by practising your art in nature: writing, dancing, drawing and more.

After a beautiful day of discovery in the African bush, enjoy some “alone” time for self-reflection on your journey, write in your journal, read an inspirational book or simply savour the silence and spectacular beauty around you.

Coaching & Leadership

Our volatile and unstable world forces our leaders to requires holistic thinking rather than the old way of command-and-control. Leadership is now more about seeing wholeness and about connecting personal development with business enterprise – and what better place to get a bigger picture trusting your intuition than the open wilderness of Africa ?

A safari in nature, far from the familiar environs and habits of the city, helps people reconnect to their natural leadership skills, to their emotional intelligence and sense of observation, so that they can be guided by heart and vision to implement or improve Conscious Business.

We take care of all arrangements when needed, including liaising with decision-makers in your organisation.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Open focus, silent retreats, breathing techniques

A mindfulness or silent retreat invites you to practise stillness and full attention to the present moment, letting go of concerns and discovering the peace and vitality within. Nature is mindful and in-the-moment, so imagine how you will feel after a silent walk in the savannah or a few hours sitting by a watering hole observing the wildlife, slowly becoming one with the natural surrounds.

Speak with us about venues particularly suited to silent or quiet retreats with no disturbances.

Energy Psychology

EFT, TRE, EMDR, kinesiology, sophrology, energy healing

Energy psychology is a collection of therapy practices that combine Eastern approaches to the mind and body with Western psychology. The latest neuroscience findings on trauma emphasize the importance of including non-verbal, body-oriented systems to effectively treat emotional problems.

If you are a teacher or practitioner of any energy or consciousness-based therapy, imagine the increase in power your clients will receive in sessions alternating with game drives, bush walks and good, healthy food. On top of that there’s the natural healing vibration that builds up when a group meets with a positive intention and without interruption from all the duties and distractions of the world.
