The Safari Collection is delighted to announce a new Yoga & Safari Retreat which will offer guests a unique opportunity to enjoy sun, spa, yoga and safari – and the chance to switch off completely from the daily grind. The 6 night Quantum Yoga itinerary, in conjunction with London based Yoga expert Victoria Woodhall, comprises accommodation at three of The Safari Collection’s properties – Kenya’s hottest safari spot Sasaab, new lodge Solio and Giraffe Manor where the resident Rothschild’s Giraffes join guests for breakfast.
Guests will spend four nights at Sasaab, a beautiful boutique lodge situated in the midst of a community conservancy high on the banks of the Ewaso River, which features 9 individually styled suites with private plunge pools, thatched roofs and canvas sides which can be pulled back to enable guests to enjoy the sensational views of Mount Kenya.
During their stay at Sasaab, guests will begin each day with a dynamic Quantum Yoga class overlooking the river where elephants often come to drink and end the day with a restorative session at sunset. They will also enjoy a complimentary massage at Sasaab’s Liz Earle Spa and will be able to join game drives, guided walks, camel rides and visits to the incredibly colourful and vibrant Samburu settlements or indeed just relax by their private pools.
From Sasaab, guests will be transferred to spend one night at The Safari Collection’s newest lodge, Solio, which is nestled between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains. The Solio Game Reserve is home to over 74 Black Rhinoceros and 155 White Rhinoceros, as well as numerous other wildlife species including buffalo, zebra, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah and plains game such as eland, oryx, impala, waterbuck, thompson’s gazelle and warthog. Here guests will be able to go horseriding, walking or fishing on Mount Kenya as well as enjoying yoga sessions at the lodge.
The final night of the Quantum itinerary will be spent at Giraffe Manor, Nairobi’s most iconic hotel and home and sanctuary to a group of endangered Rothschild Giraffes who often join guests for breakfast.
