For anyone wanting to escape the daily grind, immerse themselves in Africa and be pampered a little along the way, this is the ideal experience. Africa is a continent founded on a never-ending journey of depth and life, it allows you to step out of your routine and daily life, clear your mind and replenish your soul. This style of travel is tailored to offer you the luxury of time out relaxing, rejuvenation and healing whilst experiencing a truly authentic and luxury Africa safari.
Imagine being on safari in the morning witnessing wildlife in their natural habitat, returning to camp for brunch followed by an afternoon massage, yoga session or facial treatment.
When you explore with loved ones, it’s a unique shared experience, connecting through your senses in Africa’s most beautiful and remote locations. Each itinerary is tailormade to your specific needs and interests, always ensuring the evocative rhythm of Africa’s wilderness and wildlife are the backdrops to the ancient healing arts.
The good news is that spas in Africa boast a number of therapeutic benefits for men and women. It’s not about coming away looking beautiful, you come home feeling healthier, enriched and more in harmony with the world around you.
Whether you wish for the entire itinerary to be designed with wellness in mind or simply as an experience savoured at one or two places along the way, a tailormade safari holiday can give you exactly what you need.
When to Go
Never a bad time of year to focus on you and your body! Africa offers fantastic wellness, body and soul experiences year round and we can factor in as much or as little therapy time as you wish. For the outdoor treatments in wilderness areas, cooler months are recommended whereas it doesn’t matter so much in city spa resorts and hotels thanks to air conditioning.
Good to Know
There are treatments for men and women. Many of the treatments are done outdoors in the wild so you can truly immerse yourself in the setting. Bear in mind this also means wildlife may wander by or get so close that your session is interrupted. For total privacy, massages are usually offered at safari camps in the comfort of your own tent. There are fantastic organic spa products used and if you have any allergies please raise this before the treatment!
Awaken the soul
Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken. – Frank Herbert
