YOGA SAFARI – VICTORIA FALLS AND HWANGE NATIONAL PARK

THIS TRIP IS NOW FULLY SUBSCRIBED.  IF INTERESTED IN THE SAME SAFARI IN 2021 PLEASE CONTACT US.

31st January – 8th February 2020

 
I, along with Danielle Connolly based in Victoria Falls, have put together a stunning 8-night yoga safari in one of the most majestic parts of Africa.
On arrival in Victoria Falls around lunchtime, we will make the short transfer to Gorges Lodge – renowned for its spectacular views, described by some as the best in southern Africa; whether you are enjoying a cup of coffee at sunrise on your private veranda or a cool refreshment by the pool at sunset, you will be constantly drawn to the stunning vistas provided by the Batoka Gorge and the rushing waters of the Zambezi River below.

We will spend our first night here with an early morning yoga session looking over the Zambezi river as it meanders through the Gorge.  After breakfast we will head off for Hwange and our next three nights on safari.  This is a four-hour transfer and certainly for the last hour we will be driving through the Park itself with plenty of opportunity to start our game viewing experience!

We will be staying at Camelthorn which is nestled in the cool woodlands on the southern edge of Ngamo’s spectacular Plains. Here, you will be treated to a truly memorable safari experience, in pure comfort and style. Enjoy al fresco dining under the ancient camelthorn tree, savour your morning coffee in front of a roaring fire, track herds of elephant by foot, and enjoy close-up photography from the look-out. This flagship lodge ticks all the boxes for your authentic African safari experience.

Both Gorges and Camelthorn are owned and managed by Imvelo – www.imvelosafarilodges.com

Here there are no rigid schedules and timetables.  We will design a programme in accordance with our guest’s wishes combining yoga and wonderful opportunities to spot animals in their natural environment.  Hwange National Park has the largest concentration of elephants anywhere in Africa.  If you are looking for an exciting safari destination in a remote and exclusive area with great game viewing all year round, and importantly making a difference to the local communities and wildlife, then you have come to the right place.

On our return to Victoria Falls we will be staying at Lokuthula Lodges - www.africaalbidatourism.com/where-to-stay/lokuthula-lodges
 
These stunning lodges are in the grounds of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge and the accommodation will be in either 2 or 3-bedroom lodges on a single occupancy basis.  We will be exploring several locations in and around the Falls area for our yoga sessions including an early sunrise session with the backdrop of the Falls themselves.  One of these will undoubtedly be on the lawns of the lodges where we will have to share our enjoyment with the Bushbuck, mongoose and warthog!

The safari will include daily yoga classes in Hatha and Vinyasa styles, including breathwork (pranayama), gentle warm-ups, asanas to stretch, release, strengthen and tone, concluding with mindfulness and relaxation, as well as separate meditation sessions. The programme will develop gradually from the first day which will focus on relaxing and unwinding from your travel and normal worldly cares, to a focus on centering and grounding yourself in the present moment (immersed as you are in the African bush), and by the end leaving you rejuvenated, with your body, mind and senses refreshed and inspired. This gradual approach makes it suitable for beginners and more experienced practitioners and the teachers will modify all practice according to the needs of the group, prioritizing safe practice and your overall well-being. 

Local teacher Danielle Connolly is passionate about practicing yoga in the wilderness, and sharing the beauty and power of the natural environment she grew up in. This local knowledge enables us to add some unique optional elements to the safari, such as sunrise yoga at the Victoria Falls, a meditation in the gorge, and teaching that draws on the energy of Africa. 

The cost of this amazing safari is $2,250pp. That includes just about everything!  All meals on safari, drinks both local alcoholic and soft, laundry and transfers.  At Camelthorn all game drives/walks (six in all) and National Park fees are also included.  At Lokuthula we will be on a B&B basis, but we have costed two dinners and a sunset dinner cruise on the mighty Zambezi river.  So that will mean lunches and one dinner will be to your own account.  The only other additional costs are the entry Visa fee of $50 and a Parks fee of $30 for entry into the Falls National Park to see the Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Group size will be restricted to 12 people.

So, all you need to do now is book your flight!  We will advise the group of the most cost-effective flight route and cost and endeavour to get a competitive group rate.  Most flights to the destination are overnight leaving London in the early evening and arriving at lunchtime the following day with only two hours’ time difference from the UK.

PS:  We can advise and help anyone wanting to consider an add on to South Africa or other surrounding country either before or after the Yoga Safari.  We are in the southern hemisphere so January is in the middle of their summer season which might mean you want to stay a little longer!
