About this trip

9-Day SAFARI, CHIMPANZEE & GORILLA TREKKING Yoga Retreat

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.

Once in a lifetime experience! Amazing itinerary, amazing people and Marcel definitely went the extra mile for absolutely everyone. Could not recommend this any more!

An unforgettable experience! Namibia in itself is a beautiful country, but Marcel (organizer and guide) and Caroline (yoga teacher) are amazing persons as well and made the difference. Highly recommended!
