Day 2 -3: Maasailand

Welcome to Tanzania! Karibu Tanzania!

After Yoga breakfast you will drive toMaasai Lodge – Africa Amini, nestled in-between Mt Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft.) and Mt. Meru (14,997 ft). This is where you immerse yourself for the second two days in Tanzania, a special place where you immediately come to rest and reflect. In the middle of the wilderness of the Maasai steppe, you will stay in the comforts of a traditional bungalow, complete with all the modern-day essentials.

We will spend our days practicing yoga and meditation in the most peaceful and stunning of settings; nature walks with Maasai guides and learning about the traditions and stories from the people of this land.

This is the best place to get to know the rituals and practices of the Maasai people, traditions that have kept them strong, beautiful and proud for centuries. There is a pool over-looking the savannah and a sauna and massage room. Meals are made with love, combining indigenous foods with modern recipes. Most dietary sensitivities can be catered for on the Healing Safari.

From your bed, you may see the sunrise over Mt. Kilimanjaro in the morning, and late afternoon walks upon the earth allow you to feel the pulse of this land. The primordial African bush is one of the most profound ways to re-connect with nature in its purest form. A place where your mind, body and spirit find grounding and you can truly soothing your soul.

Day 4-6: The Serengeti Ecosystem and the Great Migration

You are transferred to the West Kilimanjaro airstrip for your flight into the Serengeti. Here you stay at the stunning Acacia Migration Camp, a luxury tented-camp offering an authentic and intimate bush experience in the middle of the Serengeti wilderness. Complete with a full-sized bed with cotton sheets and duvet, a warm-water shower, and sumptuous meals, this is the “true Africa” experience, the one you have been dreaming about.

In the Serengeti, you have a chance to see elephants, lions, cheetahs and leopards and truly immerse yourself into primordial natural rhythms. In late November, after the short rains, the wildebeest head down from Kenya and back into the revitalized Serengeti.

This Great Migration is rated as one of the world’s most spectacular natural events – every year over a million wildebeest and zebra and antelope migrate across rivers and plains. Being immersed inside of this mass movement stirs your heart and liberates your soul.

During your stay, you experience yoga and meditation sessions overlooking the savannah, the healing power of storytelling around the campfire, African-style. The Yoga Instructor will be  teaches about understanding your mind-body constitution and the dynamics of your relationships within your extended family and your ‘tribe’, while Your Driver Guide will illuminates the parallels between what you see on the game drives and our human society, the sacred masculine and the sacred feminine from an indigenous African perspective.

Day 7-10: Highland Forest and Ngorongoro Conservation Area

You depart the Serengeti ecosystem by road and travel towards the Ngorongoro Crater. The views along the way are simply spectacular as you look out at the changing landscape, from the plains of the savannah to the rugged highlands. You are travelling the Rift Valley of East Africa, a place where the remains of some of our earliest ancestors are found.

For the final days of the Healing Safari, you stay at a blissful farm retreat, a place that truly brings a sense of well-being and tranquility. Your beautiful cottage may overlook exquisite gardens teaming with flowers, vegetables and herbs. We spend our days on peaceful walks with breath-taking scenery, viewing wildlife and practicing yoga and meditation in this naturally healing environment. There are massages available and you have an opportunity to meet with a laiboni, a traditional spiritual healer in Maasai culture.

We descend into Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera, a magical place, teeming with wildlife. After a day of wildlife viewing, we gather around the fire for happy hour, sharing stories with the Yoga Instructor and Driver Guide before a delicious meal and time for reflection, journaling and dreamtime.

Our final meal together will be a celebration and closing ritual that honors our beautiful experience of the wildlife, land, people and culture that have helped heal you in the most gentle and profound ways.

Top 4 Reasons Not To Miss This Trip!

Awe-inspiring wildlife re-connects you to the Universe

The word safari is a Swahili word that literally means ‘a journey.’ What makes a Healing Safari above and beyond a traditional African safari is that as you embark on an external journey through the wilds of Tanzania, you are being gently guided on an internal exploration of your own heart and soul.

Being immersed inside of the massive wildebeest and zebra migration, where you literally feel the earth vibrate, gently nudges you out of any feelings of ‘stuckness’ and your soul soars freely.

Nurture a Yoga & Meditation Practice

Have you been telling yourself for a while that you want to be more consistent with meditating and practicing yoga? Are you seeking a way to include meditation and yoga in your life that fits your schedule and ability?

Great news! The daily meditation and yoga we practice in absolutely gorgeous settings on this retreat is for all levels of experience. You will be introduced to Maasai Yoga & Meditation that takes its cues from the land and wildlife inhabited by the Maasai so you learn how to “talk to your own nature”. By the end of the Healing Safari, you will have established a regular meditation and yoga practice at a pace and level that is customized specifically for you.

Eco-luxury accommodations giving you experiences of three profoundly different landscapes

You begin the Healing Safari at a lodge in between Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru where you can feel the comforting energy of this land, home to the indigenous Maasai people. You then travel to the Serengeti, on the plains of the wide-open savannah. You finish the Healing Safari in a highland forest, a cooler, moister environment. As you move through each climate, you can enjoy how your body-mind adjusts to each setting and you tap into new sources of energy you may not know you had!

Spending your days ‘in the bush’, in luxury accommodation, resting in the womb of Mother Nature; waking to the sounds of an abundance of birds, elephants walking behind your tent, and the roar of lions in the distance, you find yourself getting in synch with the enlivening rhythms of nature.

Experience the power of African ancient wisdom traditions

Have you been trying out all kinds of things over the years to try to be healthier, lose weight, quit bad habits, or solve family problems? Thought you knew everything about natural health but….feel like you may still be missing something that could truly help you and your family?

While there certainly are benefits to the entire alternative’ healing modalities available these days, traditional African healing is considered one of the most powerful and transformative. Maasai healing wisdom and techniques essentially‘re-boots’ your operating system. You will be introduced to the concepts of initiation and rites of passage and how these can be modified for ‘Western’ culture to help you move through your life with more joy and fulfillment. And you will learn how to create daily rituals that give rhythm to your day which we practice on the Healing Safari. You learn about African practices for illness prevention, conflict resolution, and fulfilling your purpose in life that you can use for years and years to come.

Get on a Healing Safari is an optimal way to be introduced to the power of African ancient wisdom traditions.
