Mindfulness Nature Retreat Tanzania

The breathtaking landscapes of Ngorongoro Crater Highlands, the loving glance of a giraffe, walking for hours through infinite space and silence, meditating between impalas and zebras, a delicious dish prepared by our magician cook, the smell of burning wood, a lovely African sunset or the sound of a roaring lion in the middle of Serengeti. All these ingredients of this unique safari are super seducers. They surprise your eyes, let your ears spires, your skin tingle and they juggle with smells and tastes.

Life seduces you tirelessly for no other reason then to open and surprise you. It invites you to see that all the locks on your doors are most of the time unnecessary. It lures you with all its forms and colors to soften your walls.This unique Ngorongoro and Serengeti safari plays Casanova and the meditations give you space to enjoy even more all those radiant splendor around you.

Accommodation

You will stay in Oasis Meserani in Arusha; Ilboru Safari Lodge in Arusha and bush camps in Ngorongoro and Serengeti.

Program

The aim of this package is to offer a new perspective on yourself, others and life with the help of the unique wild nature in Tanzania and a deep insight of the mind/brain.

With a diversity of profound techniques we will support you to retrain your brain and become the master of it instead of the other way around. In the end you will see that happiness and relaxation cant be found in your mind but in your connection with reality. The wild nature of Tanzania is a wonderful support in this profound process.

Safari Adventure

Adventure means leaving your safe well known world behind and to enter a new and unknown world. When you step in, you will never know what you will meet on the way. The Ngorongoro Crater Highlands are positioned in the top 10 of most spectacular landscapes in the world. The heart of this safari is shaped by an old Masai trail which you will follow in four days from the village Endonyowas to the famous Lake Natron. During this hike you will be guided by Mindful Adventure's Masai friends. For four days you will walk about 12 to 15 kilometers per day. And every day you will take in a different kind of landscape; savanna, tropical rain forest, mountains, craters, and desert. You will end up in famous Lake Natron to enjoy its extraordinary landscape, flamingos and romantic waterfall. From there you will chase for lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, and more in Serengeti.

Mindful Adventure

Mindful Adventure will support the travelers to connect with wild life and the local people of East Africa in a more profound way. They would like to see the guests touched and enjoy pure adventure. Pure means that they offer a tour that shows highlights, as well as exploring the uniqueness of the locals, tribes, flora and fauna, villages, towns, restaurants and accommodations. To do so you will be tempted to leave the jeeps and luxurious resorts behind. Mindful means that our special attention is focused to provide for you an active (walking / biking) and also peaceful and relaxing tour to reach a sincere experience of your safari.

Daily itinerary

Day 1: Kilimanjaro Airport - LOasis Meserani, Arusha

You will arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania where you will be met by the guide and taken to L'Oasis Meserani just outside Arusha to spend the night. L'Oasis Meserani is a modest but pure place. It has been built up during the past 20 years by a Tanzanian lady called Margaret.

You can see she did this in a loving and caring way. What makes it extra special is that she also has her own vegetable garden and takes care of her animals in a eco-friendly way.

Day 2: Oasis

We stay at Oasis to have time to get to know each other better and to create a rooted Mindful foundation for the coming weeks. From here the Mindful program can be woven through the safari.
