Yoga in the Bush: Safari & Spa for Body & Soul

Those passionate about health and awareness will love this special journey Roar Africa has created with partner lodges Londolozi and The Steenberg. Yoga in the South African bush and Winelands is designed to reflect and harmonize with the rhythms and cycles of nature.

Safari: 3-4 days.

Spend three nights at Londolozi Game Reserve where yoga is practiced daily amid an awesome spectacle of nature. In between sessions, you’ll thrill to the sight of magnificent wild life in their natural habitat with two game drives daily. You’ll stay at Varty Camp where the luxurious accommodations are raised off the ground beneath a cathedral of trees. Each room has a private swimming pool on a timber deck that overlooks the riverine bush. In addition to the daily yoga class (suitable for beginners or intermediates), guests may choose to enjoy a private session alongside the cool rush of the Sand River, while greeting the morning sun on the yoga deck, or even on a game drive. Massages are also available as is Pilates and a Cardiovascular Room with experts offering fitness using unique workouts inspired by animal agility.

The massage space at Londolozi Life was designed by a holistic therapist to create a space in harmony with the elements, ensuring a meditative experience that quietens the mind, rejuvenates energy and creates inner balance. Therapies on offer in the centre include Swedish massage, aromatherapy, Thai Massage and reiki healing. All therapies are also offered in the privacy of your room or deck.

Other activities include lectures and tours of a model Shangane Cultural Village, a visit to the Craft Centre, Learning Centre and pre-school, full moon walks, clay pigeon shooting, bush running, tracking adventures, all day walking expeditions, overnight bush sleep outs, deep ecology discussions, and fishing on the Sand River.

Cape Town/Winelands: 3-4 days.

You’ll continue your spiritual journey with three nights at the historic Steenberg Hotel, with its award-winning winery, challenging golf course, hikes, and spa treatments that do as much for the soul as for the body. The hotel is minutes from Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities on earth and full of fascinating history.

The Spa at Steenberg is operated by the experienced Ginkgo Spa & Wellness Group. The ambience is earthy and relaxing. There are five beautifully fitted rooms each offering distinctive experiences, spacious and comfortable they encapsulate the essence of well being. Read more on The Steenberg here.

Roar Africa will arrange for you to visit the Cape of Good Hope, the famed Table Mountain, Robben Island, Cape Town’s vibrant Waterfront, and much much more.
