About this trip


Set your mind free as you explore and discover why Uganda’s diverse landscapes are so spectacular and home to the Mountain Gorilla.  This is a surreal, magical place where you will become one with your surroundings and where days are filled with wildlife encounters, whilst also focusing on your yoga practice.

We will be teaming up with Uganda Adventure Safaris, accompanied by their professional guide, Chris Ndyabagye, for the duration of the retreat. Chris will be showing us what makes Uganda so special as we hike the Murchison Falls and drive through 5 National Parks for a chance to see Elephant, Buffalo, Giraffe, Lion, Hyena and Leopard, just to name a few. We will set out on foot to trek Gorilla and Chimpanzee, which will for sure be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. This is truly a unique experience as only a few people get to spend time with these beauties. There are just over a thousand mountains gorillas left in the world, and half of them are found in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, where we will be trekking these gentle giants. There are 18 gorilla families that have been habituated for tourism purposes, and 17 of those are tracked in Bwindi. Uganda is also one of the only 3 countries in the world where you can do Gorilla Trekking. 

Yoga sessions depends on the day’s activities and travel time. Since most mornings start quite early due to all the amazing activities on offer and also the best time to view wildlife, you can expect a beautiful yoga flow most afternoons overlooking the jungle. Sessions will be a combination of pranayama, vinyasa flows and guided meditation - finding and creating space within. The therapeutic moves will allow you to go inward and become familiar with your own body as you link your breath and connect with nature. Here you will feel as if time is standing still, where living in the present moment is the only option. Your mind and body relaxed. The practice promotes a calming and meditative state that will benefit beginners to experienced students.

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!
