African Safari September 21st, 2014
Embark on a safari for the soul as you experience intimate wildlife encounters in pristine natural settings.
Reconnect with all your senses among the vast open spaces of Africa.
In 2011 we went on a very successful Yoga Safari to Kenya. In 2014 I want to invite you to join me in another wonderful African Safari experience.
This Safari will be in very different locations within South Africa. Moving around is somewhat easier than in Kenya and the add-ons much more convenient and varied.
The formula for the 2011 trip, involving two lodges/game parks worked out well, so that will be repeated this time. We will visit two different areas.
The first is the Ngala Private Game Reserve. This park shares a boundary with the Kruger National Park and there is no fence between them! This means that Ngala essentially has access to all the wild life in 2 million hectares of one of the biggest nature reserves in the world. Being in a private reserve provides a lot fewer people as well as outstanding trackers and guides. We will be staying in the exclusive Ngala Tented camp. For a description of the facilities,please see the description of the Ngala Reserve from the navigator.
Our transit to the second Reserve, as happened in Kenya, will be by a private small plane.
Our second stop will be in the Phinda Game Reserve which is situated in the Kwazulu-Natal province. Here we will stay in the Phinda Forest Lodge. Please see the description of this lodge from the navigator.
Phinda is often described as “Seven Worlds of Wonder” and boasts seven distinct habitats - a magnificent tapestry of woodland,
grassland, wetland and forest, interspersed with mountain ranges, river courses, marshes and pans.
Phinda is a wildlife
sanctuary where intimate encounters and rare discoveries can be experienced firsthand.
Apart from the Big 5 and other animals, keep a special look out
for cheetah and the edangered Black Rhino.
Yoga will be included as appropriate. But this is
a full Yogic experience.
