Soul Safari Retreats : interactive wellness safaris
We are thrilled to launch our Soul Safaris with Louise Westerhout as our “guru”. These trips will be advertised throughout the year and are exclusive to a small group of like-minded souls.
Our vision is to share the wild places of Africa in a way that is both environmentally responsible and nurturing to your spirit. These remote areas provide a means of reconnecting with our inner landscapes – something so often neglected and forgotten in
the modern fast-pace world in which we live. Our aim is to give you the opportunity to share in this magnificent journey and enjoy the wilderness for what it is, while at the same time allowing you to find inner-strength and rejuvenation.
This new venture combines a wealth of expertise and passion to provide a unique and life-changing safari and yoga retreat experience.
