New Years 2018

Safari, Surf and Yoga in partnership with Rhino Africa and Wild Ark  

4 SPOTS LEFT 

We are beyond excited to open up registration our 2018/2019 New Year's adventure to South Africa!  We have partnered with Wild Ark and Rhino Africa, two organizations that create unforgettable safari experiences while maintaining a strong commitment to the protection of the environment. 

The itinerary is incredible! An option to visit Cape Town for New Year's, followed by a quick visit to Johannesburg,  where we will then fly to a beachfront 5 star-boutique hotel located on a secret beach on the Elephant coast, followed by the safari portion of the trip, to Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge. Rhino Ridge holds the honour of being the first private facility within Africa’s oldest proclaimed reserve – Hluhluwe–iMfolozi Park, where guests can revel in four-star luxury in a private lodge in this reserve in Kwazulu Natal; renowned for protecting the previously endangered white rhino which now numbers over 1000 in the park. Most meals included, all transportation (including three flights within South Africa)  park fees, yoga, meditation, surfing and day actitivies. 

It's not every day that you plan a vacation to South Africa, and that said, this trip is extremely doable!  We commit to sharing incredible trips available to all with our payment plans; the earlier you book the better!   Open to 12 participants only.
