Safari cottages

The campsite is private with just four twin cottages, each with their own bathroom. The communal area has a kitchen, dining room, indoor living and yoga space, and outdoor veranda and barbecue area. It is simple and comfortable. Yogasafaris will also have a chef and a game ranger on site. Prince Harry himself stayed in one of the huts in 2013. It is humble but comfortable and perfect for a retreat back to nature.

Please note that this is a walking and yoga retreat in a safari area, not a luxury safari. Luxury safari prices would start at triple the price of this. Therefore, you also have to forego such amenities as Wi-Fi, 24/7 electricity, washing machine, and daily linen change although the staff does clean the rooms every day. There is a discount if three people share the cottage. Superking bed (two twin beds made up together) and single occupancy can be arranged for a surcharge.

Program

You will walk, meditate, practice yoga, and sleep amongst the incredible wildlife of Southern Africa.

  • Morning and afternoon walks with the ranger, seeing rhino, elephant, various antelope, hippo, crocodiles, and many more animals on foot
  • Daily meditation and yoga with experienced teachers
  • Sleep in cottages in the African wild in an exclusive safari camp
  • Spend quality time with yourself and make new friends in your small group (maximum of six guests)

Every day, you will wake up to the sounds of the African bush, walk at dawn in the footsteps of elephants, and observe rhinos from a safe distance, on foot, with just the trees and your trusted field guide between you.

You will then return home to a wholesome brunch on the veranda and watch the wildlife come and go around the camp before enjoying being in your body through an expertly guided yoga practice, exploring further areas of the wildlife area by car in the afternoon, or walking to visit the hippo by the river. After returning to base for a wholesome plant-based barbecue, you will fall asleep early to the sound of the African bush.

Included excursions

Walking safari

Yogasafaris has their own private ranger to take you on walks every morning and afternoon (all activities optional - relaxing on the veranda is wonderful and you can see many animals from there too). He will guide you safely and share invaluable insight into the ways of the fauna and flora around you. You have the chance to see almost all the South African bush animals that live in the region and almost guaranteed to see rhino, elephant, various antelope, hippo, crocodiles, and many more.
