Become Silent, Become One With Nature.

“Silence is essential. We need silence, just as much as we need air, just as much as plants need light. If our minds are crowded with words and thoughts, there is no space for us.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Safari translates from Swahili to journey or travel. Experience magnificent wildlife in their stunning natural habitat on an African safari, as well as an elevated inward journey of discovery.

Rise to new heights as you practice yoga, surrounded by the African wilderness and encounter the Big 5 up close and personal. Become one with the vulnerability of nature.

Based at Kariega River lodge, enjoy daily game drives, guided walks and yoga sessions, all within the peaceful surroundings of the magnificent African bush.

The Destination
Situated on South Africa’s malaria-free Garden Route, Kariega Game Reserve spans across 10,000 hectares of pristine Eastern Cape wilderness and is home to the famous Big 5 as well as a multitude of African wildlife including hippo, giraffe and zebra. The reserve is also a paradise for birdlife, including resident and migrant birds.

The nearest airport is Port Elizabeth and is an 80-minute drive away, the seaside village of Kenton-on-Sea is 10 minutes drive and the historic town of Grahamstown can be reached in half an hour.
