✈︎ South Africa
New Years 2019
Safari, Surf and Yoga in partnership with Rhino Africa and Wild Ark
REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
When we decided to launch a surf, yoga + safari trip, we knew we didn’t want to go with the usual. We wanted to make an impact. We teamed with Rhino Africa, a South African based travel company, and came up with a perfect trip that balances a spectacular, one of a kind beach, yoga + safari experience while giving back to the planet. This is why we are giving part of our proceeds to Wild Ark, an organization that supports and protects the wild places of the planet.
The itinerary is incredible! An option to visit Cape Town for New Year's, followed by 4 nights in a beachfront 5 star-boutique hotel located on the Elephant coast, followed by the safari portion of the trip at the epic 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 luxury transportation (including two flights within South Africa) park fees, yoga, meditation, most daily activities included in the price.
It's not every day that you plan a vacation to South Africa, and that said, this trip is extremely doable! Open to ten participants.
