This experience allows you to connect to the landscape surrounding you and will provide everlasting memories of your trip.
Fri 6th Sept: Final Goodbyes
Final day blues, this morning will be your last change to meditate to the sounds of the African Savannah in complete serenity. It will also be your last yoga session before your departure.
