About this trip

JOURNEY FROM YOUR HEART IN ONE OF THE WORLDS MOST UNIQUE ECOSYSTEMS - Okavango Delta, Botswana.


Join myself and Jill, an Australian gong master and yoga teacher for 7 days of yoga flows along the Okavango Delta. Botswana is not only famous for its wildlife and stunning beauty, but one of the greatest adventure Safari destinations in Africa. It is also home to the largest population of elephants and wild dogs anywhere in the world. 


We have teamed up with Roots & Journeys, a circuit of lodges with a strong passion for the country, the people, and conservation. The retreat takes place at 2 of their luxurious lodges, Mopiri and Nokanyana, offering you the best of both worlds in the Delta. The Okavango Delta is a unique ecosystem with both a permanent and seasonal home to a wide variety of superb wildlife, a large concentration of birds and lush vegetation. Not only will you experience the remoteness from land, but also from above with 3 included scenic flights. 


Morning yoga sessions by Marcel will be slow vinyasa flows, finding and creating space within, as the world along the Delta awakes. Not only will the picture-perfect settings give you the feeling as though time is standing still, but you will certainly be renewed after each session and ready for what the day has in store for us – plenty of wildlife, relaxation and unique activities specific to the area.


You will find yourself back in nature for an afternoon yoga practice with Jill while listening to the sounds of hippos along the river and bird life as night approaches. Over the last 30 years, Jill taught and trained with amazing teachers in several styles of yoga - Hatha, Radiant light and Kundalini is just a few to mention, including mantra, yoga therapy, shamanic healing, sound healing and Trauma Aware yoga. Her yoga sessions encourage movement of energy for endurance and healing, using pranayama and movement. Jill teaches from an inner perspective, bringing awareness back into the body and feeling what is. 

“My yoga is focused on inner awareness, opening the heart, refining the relationship to self, bringing the mind to the present, sitting in meditation connected to the loving, unchanging eternal part of Self, I often use mantra for meditations. I am very traditional in my yoga teachings and beliefs.”

The chefs will prepare healthy vegan/vegetarian meals and you can also expect to have lunch in various locations around the camps.

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!
