      About this trip

      Join Walker Wellness Retreats on an All-Inclusive Luxury Safari to Africa. We will visit the best locations for the great migration!

      July is a great time to come and enjoy pleasant weather, less bugs, and view the biggest variety of wildlife courtesy of the Great wildebeest migration from Serengeti plains in Tanzania to the world-famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.

      The Great Migration is today one of the natural worlds most astonishing phenomena. Each year nearly two million wildebeest and accompanying large numbers of zebra, and smaller numbers of Grant's gazelle, Thompson's gazelle, eland and impala trek from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara and back again in search of fresh grazing. Viewing these vast herds on the move is always unforgettable sight. This experience is rated as one of the most spectacular natural events.

      All activities and excursions are completely optional and you are free to participate in as little or as much as you would like since this is your vacation. 

      Trip Style: Adventure. We will be traveling from place to place with multiple accommodations. While there is certainly some down time, this retreat is more on the active side with the schedule.  

      Accommodations in 5-Star Safari Camps

      When we think of camping, we usually think of thin canvas tents, air mattresses, and sleeping bags. Not on this retreat! Enjoy 5-star safari camps in the beautiful African wilderness complete with thick canvas-walled tents, beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds and linens, fully stocked bathrooms, and more. Enjoy delicious meals cooked by an onsite chef while looking out on the African bush. You will hardly believe you're in a camp!

      This was a once in a lifetime adventure! I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming! We had a wonderful time. The excursions were fabulous and food was delicious! As always, Amy did a great job of planning and was able to take care of most of the unexpected events that arise on any adventure! We received a daily text of the day’s activities, including any changes that might be needed. I appreciate being able to pay for these retreats over time. I feel like it makes it possible for anyone to go! The total cost doesn’t seem as daunting, and is really very reasonable considering all that is included. It’s nice that everything on the trip is paid for once you arrive. I can’t wait for my next adventure with Walker Wellness Retreats. Thanks again, Amy and community!

      Amazing trip to Greece! We showed up with our luggage and they took care of the rest. We'd definitely travel with Amy and Brian again. Highly recommend them.

      Such a beautiful house for the retreat, the meals were phenomenal ! The yoga instructor was amazing! A little hot for the hikes but still very beautiful!

      Brian and Amy know the right balance between having time to explore on one's own and taking an informative cultural tour. The hotels were top rate. The restaurants chosen for the group dinners gave excellent service and the Greek food was so delicious. This company values its clients and keeps the group under 12. I loved my Greece travel experience!
