03rd February 2025

We are so excited to be able to offer you this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, a Safari with beach yoga holiday in Kenya.

If you are going to experience a safari holiday then Kenya is one of the best countries in Africa to see the Big 5, that is African buffalo, Lion, Leopard, rhino, elephant, as well as Cheetah and many more. You will start by arriving in Mombasa airport and staying one night in a beachfront hotel so you can rest before the adventure begins. The next day you will head to Tsavo Game Park in the southeast corner of Kenya. Tsavo is Kenya’s largest game park and is split into Tsavo East and Tsavo West and the abundance of wildlife is breathtaking as well as the expansiveness of wilderness, it is truly awe-inspiring to witness.

Whilst you’re staying at a tented camp in Tsavo East for 2 nights, you will experience a game drive each day. This area is flat and arid with lake lands and is well known for its red elephants because the herds bathe in the red mud. It is the oldest game park in Kenya. This camp has a watering hole where animals congregate to drink and bathe, it is an amazing experience to be able to sit and watch this whilst eating lunch or practising yoga.

You will then move to Tsavo West to a tented camp and spend 2 nights here enjoying a game drive each day in this expansive land. This area is more mountainous and greener and so you can enjoy the scenery as well as diverse wildlife.  If you want a massage there is a wellness spa with massage and a swimming pool to relax around.

Yoga will be once a day either morning or evening depending on the schedule and it will be an amazing experience to practice yoga in the surroundings of the savannah and plains with animals all around. Breathing in the earth of this sacred land you will feel a true connection with Africa.

Next, you will be transported to the beach! Diani Beach will be your home for 4 nights, staying in a boutique hotel that is beachfront. There are 4 private rooms with en-suite bathrooms with a balcony overlooking the gardens and two beach cottages that have twin rooms and are only a stone’s throw from the beach. There is a swimming pool that overlooks the Indian ocean and white sand beach so you can choose where to relax in your downtime. Your meals will be in the hotel’s beachfront restaurant and you can choose what you like from the menu for each meal. The award-winning boutique resort has long been recognised for its continued commitment to the environment and operating in a sustainable way, that supports the unique surrounds of the resort.

Here you can relax in the day or if you want more adventure there is Shimba Hills to experience another game park or you can try any watersport; kite or windsurfing, SUP, kayaking or diving. The water-sports equipment (paddle-boards, kayaks, surf boards & more) is free for you to use! Enjoy a Dow boat trip to a marine national park to snorkel and much more!

We are so excited to be able to offer you a Kenya yoga retreat. A land that is so rich in history, culture, wildlife and wilderness becomes the perfect setting for a once in a lifetime adventure and yoga retreat.

Read more Down Arrow

Situated in East Africa with the Indian Ocean furthest east it is a vast expanse of land and one holiday can only cover a small percentage of what there is to see and do there.

If you fly into Nairobi before your Kenya yoga retreat, you open the door to enchanting destinations. From the majestic Mount Kenya and the captivating Samburu game park to the iconic Masai Mara, the scenic Lake Naivasha, and the mesmerising Lake Nakuru, the possibilities are endless. Nairobi itself is a treasure trove, with its own National Game Park, right in the city! For wildlife enthusiasts, an animal orphanage awaits, featuring adorable baby elephants, giraffes, rhinos, and more in need of care. You can also visit the Karen area, immortalised in the film ‘Out of Africa,’ invites you to explore Karen Blixen’s house, a cinematic and historical gem.

Mount Kenya is home to the highlands and tea plantations, offering hiking opportunities for the adventurous spirit. A trip to Lake Naivasha promises a spectacle of thousands of flamingos, a truly incredible experience.

Should you fly to Mombasa before joining us on our Kenya yoga retreat, you are closer to game parks like Tsavo East and West, as well as the renowned Amboseli, famous for its many African elephants and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro bordering Tanzania. The allure extends beyond wildlife to the pristine white sandy beaches and the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, with beach resorts like Diani Beach, Malindi, and Watamu offering a perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. For those seeking a more remote paradise, the Island of Lamu in the north is a worthy escape.

In most game parks, you’re in for a treat as you may spot the Big 5 – Lion, Leopard, African buffalo, elephant, as well as rhino, gazelle, warthogs and hyenas to name a few. The magic of sunrise and sunset game drives reveals the animals at their most active, creating unforgettable scenes such as cheetahs stalking prey or lionesses nurturing their cubs. Plus, you have the experience of practicing yoga whilst on safari.

Kenya’s diverse landscape, encompassing savannahs, plains, the Great Rift Valley, lakelands, lowlands, highlands, beaches, and oceans, is complemented by the fascinating tribal areas of Masai Mara and Samburu. The idea of a yoga retreat in Kenya becomes the perfect culmination of natural beauty, cultural richness, and holistic well-being. Consider a yoga retreat in Mombasa or delve into the transformative experience of a yoga retreat in Kenya – a harmonious union of rejuvenation and exploration.

About the yoga

Yoga on your Safari and beach yoga holiday in Kenya:

For the Safari part of your yoga holiday, the yoga classes will be once a day and either in the morning or evening depending on the itinerary and when you will be out on game drives. Yoga will be amongst nature with stunning sunsets and wildlife to observe whilst taking your down dog.

Yoga at the beach location will either be under palm trees on the grounds with ocean views, in the yoga shala or on the beach!

The morning yoga will be more dynamic to enliven the body and mind and stretch out from the previous game drive in the bush or beach day, with a warming flow. The evening yoga class will be slower and more restorative to create space to take in your surroundings and feel present to fully enjoy through every sense this wonderful yoga holiday experience in Kenya.

About the food

To start, all meals are included in the price of this holiday.

At the game parks, the food is buffet style and has a choice of vegan or vegetarian but also a choice of meat if you are a meat eater. Let us know if you have specific dietary needs so we can arrange with the game parks in advance and they will do their best to accommodate your needs. They are African chefs and so although there may be vegan options, they won’t be as advanced as the west.

On the beach at the boutique hotel, you will be dining in their beachfront restaurant for all meals. Enjoy breakfast with coffee, teas, juice, fruit, a choice of eggs and warm breakfast and yoghurts and granola. Lunch can be a 3 course meal if you choose, as well as dinner because you can choose anything off their extensive menu. There is a choice of meat, fish, vegan, and vegetarian.  Again let us know of any specific dietary needs so that we can do our best to accommodate.

Water is in your rooms in the safari camps and in the boutique hotel. Drinks at meal times are extra
