About this trip

8 Days of exploring the wild within you and wild around you. Mornings vinyasa flows will energize you for the adventurous day ahead and evening yoga sessions will be a combination of gentle flows, meditation and breathing techniques.

Our first 3 nights we will stay at a lodge close to the Southern gate of Namibia’s Greatest Wildlife Park - Etosha National Park. It is home to 114 free roaming species of mammals, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species and 16 amphibian species which make game viewing here a unique experience. We will head to the park early in the mornings with experienced guides and return to the lodge for lunch, relaxation, outdoor yoga sessions, beautiful sunsets and African inspired meals. We will be staying at Etosha Village, a private and protected reserve directly adjacent to the Etosha National Park. 

From wildlife at Etosha to adventurous days awaiting at the Skeleton Coast in Swakopmund. With its laid back feel, palm trees, great restaurants and german-colonial architecture, Swakopmund has various activities to choose from. Whether you want something active or more relaxed, or even a combination, this coastline will surprise you with what it has to offer - Dune boarding, Quad biking, Camel riding, Horse riding, Ocean Safari with champagne breakfast, Surfing, Kayaking, Fat wheel biking, Cultural tours, Hot-air ballooning, Living Desert tour, Cape Cross/Seal tour, Spitzkoppe tour, Scenic flights, Spa treatments and Sandwich Harbour 4x4 Tours. Here we will be staying at Desert Breeze Lodge for 3 nights, offering peace, tranquility and the ultimate desert experience. The luxury bungalows with their creative atmosphere and the friendly staff will make your stay one to remember. Breakfast will be at Desert Breeze, lunch and dinner at one of Swakopmund's many cafes’s and restaurants. Yoga sessions will be held in the desert and on the beach, even both at the same time! Imagine… your toes in the warm desert sand as you breath in the freshness of the Atlantic Ocean. I bet you won’t ever see a view like this anywhere else in the world.

Our last night will be spent in luxury at Gocheganas, a private game reserve offering a unique combination of wildlife, nature and wellness experiences. With 25 different wildlife species located on a 6000 hectare Nature Reserve, game drives and walking activities are welcomed as an enriching experience. Wellness facilities and treatments ensure a renewal of mind, body and spirit. It certainly can’t end on a more relaxing note.

An absolutely epic trip led by a really special human! This was a much-needed adventure and mental break, and it truly exceeded my expectations. I loved the combo of wildlife, adventure and yoga, and Marcel took such amazing care of us. The group was awesome too; we instantly connected, which made the journey even more fun. Marcel, thank you SO much for showing us your beautiful country! I feel lucky to have experienced Namibia alongside you, and to have left with so many amazing photos, memories & new friends xoxo

The most perfect trip to all of Namibia’s highlights! Marcel was the most amazing guide, and made sure our trip was the best it could be every step of the way. Having the chance to do yoga every day was a nice way to carve out time to reflect on the long, exciting days we had. Definitely will be signing up for another trip with Marcel soon!!

What a wonderful 11 days. The trip was packed with touristic gems: safari, boat trip, walking the dunes, eating under the night sky, spa and of course yoga. The trip was so well organized and wonderfully balanced. This is thanks to Marcel who makes you immediately feel at home and goes out of her way to make this trip unforgettable. She is a wonderful host and person. I highly recommend this trip!
