&Beyond Takes Downward Dog to the African Bushveld on Yoga Safaris

Johannesburg, South Africa – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

With the rising trend of health and wellness travel, &Beyond has added yoga safaris to its unique product offering of luxury experiential travel adventures in Africa.

Each yoga safari will be tailor-made by &Beyond’s travel expert and yoga teacher, Melissa Adey, to suit guests’ specific needs and interests. Melissa will also personally design each safari at the &Beyond lodge of their choice – whether on the dunes of the Namib Desert, overlooking the Okavango Delta or on the plains of the Masai Mara.

“The African bushveld is the perfect place for people to recognize their place within the universe, and to reconnect with nature and wildlife, but most importantly with oneself. Yoga is a fast track to access this space no matter where you are and to combine it with a luxury safari offers a wonderful opportunity to reconnect on a much deeper level,” says Melissa.

Led by renowned local and international yoga teachers, each safari will include a range of yoga and meditation classes each day in peaceful bushveld surroundings. Guests may enjoy fresh smoothies, raw vegetable and fruit juice or coffee before setting off on interpretive morning game drives. Days can then be spent leisurely relaxing at the lodge pool, enjoying a massage after breakfast or an afternoon siesta before a short yoga class, high tea and an exciting afternoon game drive.

In addition to reconnecting with nature, &Beyond also offers guests the opportunity to give back to the local communities surrounding its reserves and lodges. Just by choosing to travel with &Beyond, guests can be assured that their travel money is being used to positively influence ongoing conservation development and community empowerment.
