Meditation in the Wild
ZenGuiding and Pungwe Safari Camp are offering a three-day Meditation in the wild & Reconnecting to nature experience
Postponed due to Covid-19 situation (Refer to Rates and Dates below)
Join us on a safari experience with a difference, reconnecting to nature through meditation and mindfulness. Benefit from nature’s own therapy 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 Pungwe Safari Camp, a small intimate authentic safari camp which brings back the essence of a true safari experience.
The 4 en-suite Meru-styled tents at Pungwe offer simple elegant comfort, security, hot and cold running water for baths or showers and an exceptional feeling of truly being in the African bush. Only under canvas will you not only hear, but feel the roar of the lion, the throaty cough of a leopard and the Fiery Necked Nightjar celebrating the night.
Pungwe Safari Camp is situated in the Big 5 Manyeleti Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park conservation area.

What to Bring
For walking we suggest that you bring comfortable shoes or boots, shorts and/or long trousers and long-sleeved shirts and/or t-shirts in neutral khaki, green or brown colours as bright colours on walks are inadvisable.
A hat is essential. Around the camp and on game drives sandals or casual shoes are sufficient. It is advisable to bring a jacket and jersey for those cooler times of day and particularly in the winter months.
Other useful items to bring on safari include a torch with batteries, sunscreen, insect repellent, cameras and binoculars and any medication you might need. The camp does have a medical first aid kit with basic medication.
The Manyeleti Game Reserve is a relatively low risk malaria area, but we strongly advise that you check with your doctor to find out what malaria tablets you will need, and when you should commence the course.
