10 Days Yoga Safari
Our most inclusive safari, this ten day trip takes us on a coffee plantation tour, a visit with two indigenous Tanzanian tribes, game drives through Lake Manyara, Tarangire, and Serengeti National Parks. We'll visit the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO world heritage site, take a meditation walk along Lake Eyasi and, of course, start and finish each day with a yoga session. All your meals will be provided for the duration of the safari and each night you'll rest your head at one of our luxury accommodations.
During our morning yoga session we'll rise and salute the sun with an invigorating practice to prepare us for a day of engaging with the animals or immersing ourselves in local culture, getting the chance to see how truly connected we are.
For our evening yoga session we'll have the opportunity to slow down through meditation, breath work and yin yoga. The perfect chance to unwind and feel into the events of the day.
Capacity: max. 6 people + 1 yoga teacher
Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport your driver will pick you up and take you to your first lodge. You will recognize him by the “Yoga Safari Tanzania” sign and t-shirt.
The rest of the day can be spent at the lodge, either at the pool or exploring the surrounding area. In the evening you will meet Tizia and your guide for dinner and the briefing.
