NEW WELLNESS SAFARI RETREAT COMPANY MAKES SPLASH IN AFRICA
For years wellness influencers have taken their show on the road to beautiful settings in the Caribbean and United States, but now The Safari Retreat company is giving wellness travelers the chance to combine the serenity of Africa with the exhilaration of a safari for one of the most unique travel offerings available.
The Safari Retreat company is the premiere wellness retreat company in Africa. Founder Becky Robertson came up with the idea to bring retreats to Africa to take advantage of the almost mystical quality of the land. Robertson’s family has offered traditional safaris for more than 35 years.
“I grew up in the safari business and saw first-hand how Africa awed, inspired and changed our guests,” she said. “I thought there was no better setting to offer transformative wellness retreats. Our programs allow people to disconnect through nature and the wild to reconnect with themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.”
The Safari Retreats couldn’t be more timely as the Global Wellness Summit named adventure wellness travel as a Top 10 Trend for 2022.
The Safari Retreats are held at personally vetted mid-range and luxury safari lodges in the private and off the beaten track region of Laikipia. Lodges such as Lewa Wilderness, one of Kenya’s oldest and most private safari experiences, Borana Lodge and El Karama offer incrediable wildlife settings and experiences, with the chance to see the Big 5 at many locations. The Safari Retreat works with some of the top wellness influencers in the world to bring yoga, Pilates and mind/body retreats to Africa. The retreats blend the wellness programming with daily safari activities including; game drives, safari walks, horseback safari expeditions and camel rides. Each retreat includes all accommodations, meals, and transfers and travel within Africa.
For 2022 The Safari Retreat is pleased to offer the following retreats:
- Laurga Yoga March 12-19 at Lewa Wilderness in Kenya (2 places remaining)
- The Manifestation Retreat July 31-Aug. 6 at El Karama Lodge in Kenya (8 places remaining)

- Victoria Hodgson Pilates Retreat Nov. 2-9 at Lewa Wilderness (10 places remaining)
- Ashtanga Yoga with Philippa Asher Dec. 3-10 at Lewa Wilderness (1 place remaining)
All Safari Retreats are designed to take people out of their comfort zones to allow them to have a-ha moments that truly change the way they think about themselves and their internal stories. Through adventure, slowing down and attuning to nature people are primed to have a transformational experience that goes far beyond simply traveling to Africa to view “The Big 5.”
