Join us for a trip of a lifetime in one of the most spectacular countries in the world for a safari and see ancient animals in their natural habitats. 4 nights on Safari, 5 nights on the beach with yoga every day. A holiday you will never forget.
We are so excited to be able to offer you this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, our very first 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. Your adventure will start by arriving in Mombasa and then heading 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.
You will start by staying at a tented camp in Tsavo East for 2 nights and you will experience a game drive each day, in fact, the arrival day is a game drive in itself to get to the camp because it is within the park itself. 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 with stunning sunsets and scenery as well as diverse wildlife. At this camp, you will also experience a bush walk with a Masai tribesman and if you want a massage there is a wellness spa.
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 5 nights, staying in a private beachfront colonial thatched bungalow with a swimming pool and spacious grounds overlooking the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and white sandy beach.
Here you can relax 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. One evening will be out at a restaurant in a cave with views of the stars and all other meals are included.

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 guaranteed to be amongst nature with stunning sunsets and wildlife to observe whilst taking your down dog.
Yoga in the beach location will be under palm trees on the grounds with ocean views.
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.

Men & Women
We are so excited to be able to offer you Kenya for 2023. A land that is so rich in history, culture, wildlife and wilderness.
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 to Nairobi you have access to Mount Kenya, Samburu game park, the Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru to name a few places to visit. Nairobi itself is a great place to visit because it has its own National Game Park, right in the city! There is also an animal orphanage with baby elephants, giraffes, rhinos and more that need care. You can also visit the area called Karen where Karen Blixen lived – have you seen the film ‘Out of Africa’? You can visit her house which was also used in the film.
Mount Kenya is home to the highlands and tea plantations and you can hike up Mount Kenya for the energetic. Take a trip to Lake Naivasha and see thousands of flamingos, it really is a sight to see.
If you fly to Mombasa you have closer access to the game parks Tsavo East and West and Amboseli which is famous for its many African elephants and Mount Kilamanjaro boardering Tanzania.
You also have access to the beautiful white sandy beaches and the aqua-coloured Indian Ocean with beach resorts like Diania beach, Malindi and Watamu and if you want to go a little further to the Island of Lamu in the north.
In most of the game parks, you can spot the Big 5 – Lion, Leopard, African buffalo and elephant as well as rhino, gazelle, antelope, eland, warthogs, jackals and hyenas to name a few. Sunrise and sunset is the best time to go for game drives as the animals are most active then, and it is a wonderful thing to see cheetah stalking for prey at sunset or lionesses feeding their cubs.
With a diverse landscape of savannah, the plains, the Great Rift Valley, lakelands, lowlands, highlands, beaches and oceans plus the fascinating tribal areas of Masai Mara and Samburu to name a few, it is a vast, breathtaking and awe-inspiring country to visit.
