We will spend 3 nights at a beautiful lodge close to Namibia’s Greatest wildlife sanctuary - Etosha National Park. Game drives to the park will be with experienced guides in open air safari converted vehicles. Numerous waterholes are found throughout the park and these provide the much-needed water to the animals. The park is home to 114 species of mammals (including Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Hyena, Zebra, Springbok, Kudu, Gemsbok, Eland) , 340 bird species and 110 reptile species which make game viewing in Etosha a unique experience. If the game viewing itself is not impressive enough, the Etosha Pan definitely is, as it is even visible from space. Morning and afternoon yoga sessions will be held on an outdoor yoga deck amongst nature.
After our wildlife experiences, we move to the coast for adventurous days in Swakopmund. With German Colonial Architecture, palm trees, good restaurants and gift shops, it has a laid back feel to it. For the more adventurous, there are a variety of extreme sports from skydiving, quad biking, fat wheel biking, ocean safaris, dune boarding and surfing. Our yoga sessions will be held in the Desert and along the Ocean.
What better way to end this retreat, than with more wildlife and relaxation at Gocheganas Nature Reserve. With 25 different wildlife species, game drives and walking activities are welcomed as an enriching experience. Wellness facilities and treatments of a world class standard ensure a renewal of mind, body and spirit.
