Wellness is a huge focus in many people’s lives, so Mhondoro Game Lodge in Limpopo has teamed up with an international yoga instructor and detox specialist to present a 6 day/5 night detox and yoga safari. Running from 19 to 24 June, the package includes 5 nights’ luxury accommodation and a complete detox programme with healthy meals and three detox juice fasting days, as well as personal coaching, yoga and meditation sessions, daily safaris, bushwalks and mindfulness walks, and three spa treatments, from R39 555 per person sharing.


Myriam Vogel, the owner of Mhondoro Game Lodge says that the lodge, and Mhondoro Villa in particular, lends itself perfectly to hosting exclusive wellness events like this, with extensive decks and heated swimming pools overlooking the wilderness, a yoga room and two small gymnasiums, as well as a Spa suite with a bath outside on the deck. “We have put together a programme aimed at relaxation and intensive cleansing,” she says.


The Mhondoro Detox and Yoga Safari will be hosted by Monique Christiaans of Yoga Zenzo in the Netherlands. She says: ‘It is my dream to give people tools to live more consciously. I fulfill this mission by presenting retreats in nature, where it is possible to escape one’s busy life and relax completely in a beautiful, natural environment. During these six days you can recharge your batteries completely and at the same time become more aware of nutrition and the importance food, and what it does in your body.’ The programme will focus on detoxing, aided by specially formulated organic juices.
