Recharge and Reawaken Retreat by Kantabile Afrika (8 days / 7 Nights)

This November, join the Recharge & Reawaken Retreat with a small group of like-minded individuals on a 7-night hosted safari retreat in Tanzania.

This retreat is for you if:

  • You wish to discover or revisit Tanzania’s beautiful landscapes and abundant wildlife.
  • You yearn for changed perspective and self-discovery.
  • You seek support to facilitate transformational life changes.

Together, you will embark on a journey…

  • OUTWARD, by learning from nature and the wild.
  • BACKWARD, by reviewing our beliefs and patterns.
  • INWARD, by seeking understanding, and then releasing our concerns and fears.
  • FORWARD, by embracing clarity & embarking on the next chapter reinvigorated.

You will be in the good hands of dedicated and caring host Gayle Higginbotham of Oculus Travel and Kantabile Afrika, our logistics partner throughout the journey. Our wonderfully supportive facilitators Nathalie Sommer (Transformational Relationship Coach) and Melanie Angerer (Integrated Nutrition and Movement Coach) will lead you through the retreat program.

We will gather in Arusha, then travel on to observe the wildlife in their natural habitat on the plains of the Serengeti while staying in eco-conscious yet comfortable tented accommodations, after which we will retreat to the serenity of farms and coffee plantations in the outskirts of the Ngorongoro Crater, before returning home from Kilimanjaro Airport.
