Southern Africa is exactly what the doctor ordered for awakening your soul and taking your senses on an incredible journey. Immerse yourself in the deeply spiritual traditions of Southern Africa, as you watch in awe the all-night dance ceremonies deep in the Kalahari, and as Shamans share with you their knowledge of ancient tribal healing rituals. Go on game drives across the Savannah grasslands, relax in luxury spas, and practice yoga. Best part? All the treatments and therapies are based on local ingredients and practices.
Journey right into the heart and soul of Southern Africa. Spend four relaxed nights in Cape Town at the luxurious Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa, which is seemingly suspended over the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Dine on local organic produce at the Old Biscuit Mill’s Saturday market, immerse yourself in the views of the city spread below you from the Table Mountain, and rub noses with the penguins at Boulder Beach. Sample various wines on your way to Babylonstoren in Franschhoek, where you can tuck into a lunch made with fresh, organic and nutritious ingredients. Spend a few restful hours in Karkloof Spa, which is located right outside of Durban in a charming game reserve among waterfalls, valleys and towering Acacia trees. Next stop is the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, where you stay for three nights, at the Londolozi Private Game Reserve. Greet the early morning sun with sunrise yoga in the yoga pavilion of the lodge, followed by breakfast, along with morning and late afternoon game drives. Fly to Johannesburg for an overnight stay, and continue to Maun, Botswana for connecting with your chartered flight to the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. Spend the following three days in the quiet solitude of the world’s most impressive and expansive salt pans. With the expert guidance of a biologist, identify the flora and fauna around you. Spend three days interacting with local Bushmen in the Western Kalahari, learning about medicinal healing through traditional herbs. Spend the nights around a camp fire, watching as the Bushmen lose themselves, dancing to trance.
