A travel trend which is here to stay is wellness travel.
Just like the rest of our lives – our wellbeing has definitely climbed up in our priority ranks due to that amazing ‘addictive’ feeling of wellness. While we might still want a traditional vacation of drinking a cocktail on the beach from time to time – many people are looking for a break which is meaningful and restful.
This doesn’t mean juice detoxes, intensive exercise and a strict plan for your vacation. In fact, what we are talking about is far from that. A traditional safari entails two game drives a day in an open safari vehicle exploring the wilderness. From breathing in fresh air, to witnessing Africa’s most spectacular wildlife – a safari is a vacation for the mind, body and soul. It’s time away from your devices and around a fire with the Milky Way as your ceiling. Wellness can be found by taking an outdoor shower whilst soaking up the view. It’s discovering the ancient art of tracking and being fed a wealth of knowledge passed down through centuries. A classic safari is wholesome and totally encompasses the word ‘wellness’. And this is before you have added on any of the wellness extras which are available at some luxury lodges like Spa treatments.
Getting up early in the morning, before dawn, and heading out into the wonderfully wild wilderness that is an adventure all of its own. As the sun rises and begins to paint the sky with light, the bush comes alive and you experience the magic of Africa and the thrill of expectation, not knowing what lies around the next bend in the road...
We offer game drives in the early morning and late afternoon, and while these are a fantastic way of exploring extended Greater Kruger National Park or in the kruger Park itself, there are other ways you get to discover the wilderness during your safari. Whether it's a bush walk or a romantic interlude at a beautiful waterhole or a dinner out in the bush under a billion stars. Whether you enjoy a braai out in the reserve or in an amazing boma, with a log fire crackling and the Milky Way above, you'll get to appreciate the art of al fresco dining, wilderness-style.
Add to the mix morning coffee stops and evening sundowners, or just the chance to lay back on a big, comfy lounger next to a sparkling pool and watch for wildlife coming to drink at the waterhole in front a the lodge, you have the recipe for the perfect welness safari.
