The Safari Collection, along with London
-based yoga expert Victoria Woodhall, are offering a one-of-a-kind Quantum Yoga Safari Retreat. The invigorating and spiritual escape incorporates yoga classes along with safari experiences at three of the luxurious Safari Collection properties in Kenya: Sasaab, Solio Lodge
, and Giraffe Manor.
Sasaab is located high on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, providing an inspiring backdrop for yoga sessions. Sasaab's spacious, airy design incorporates Moroccan principles for keeping cool in the African heat and is home to the highly acclaimed SpaSaab, featuring Liz Earle beauty and skin treatment products. Days at Sasaab begin with dynamic Quantum Yoga classes overlooking the river and end with restorative sunset sessions. Guided walks, game drives, camel rides, Samburu cultural experiences and a complimentary rejuvenating massage are also part of the Sasaab visit.
From Sasaab, the Yoga Retreat takes guests to Solio Lodge, a one of a kind blend of exclusivity, privacy, luxury and exceptional game viewing, set in the valley of the majestic Mount Kenya. At Solio, guests can partake in horseback riding, walking, fishing, and of course, yoga, along with accommodation in luxurious and modern suites. The final night of the retreat will be spent at Nairobi's most iconic hotel, Giraffe Manor. The 1930s estate is reminiscent of the first days of European settlement and home to a herd of inquisitive and friendly Rothschild giraffe who often pop their heads in to join guests for breakfast.
The first scheduled yoga retreat will take place from Dec. 2 to 8, 2010, and future dates will soon be released. The price of £1925 (approximately $3,060 USD) includes full board accommodations, game drives, internal flights, a massage at Sasaab, and all yoga activities.
