Zen Safari Experience

Join us on a safari experience with a difference, reconnecting to nature through meditation and mindfulness.  Benefit from nature’s own ecotherapy by bathing in the atmosphere of the African Savanna bushveld environment.

​Learn to meditate, reconnect to nature and track your own true ecological self. 

Learn a mindful approach to deal with your everyday living in a calm and peaceful manner.  

​The Zen Safari experience reconnects you to nature and based on 30 years of scientific research provides you with an opportunity to improve your immune system and your psychological well-being. 

We will spend three days at one of the small intimate authentic Safari Camps, bringing back the essence of a true safari experience.

The accommodation offers simple elegant comfort, security, hot and cold running water and an exceptional feeling of truly being in the African bush. The Safari Camps (Pungwe Safari Camp and Antares Bush Camp) are situated in Big 5 Reserves, part of the Greater Kruger National Park conservation area.  Other camps and lodges can be arranged if required.
