OKAVANGO DELTA YOGA RETREAT
WITH ROOTS & JOURNEYS
3- 9 February 2020
Journey with us for 7 days of mindful yoga flows ALONG THE UNTOUCHED OKAVANGO DELTA WHILE EXPERIENCING a first class safari.
The Retreat takes place at 2 luxurious lodges, Mopiri and Nokanyana offering you the best of both worlds in the Delta - an incredible opportunity to connect deeply with the elements and energy of nature as we move from the wetland to the drylands. Not only will you experience the remoteness from land, but also from above with 3 scenic flights.
Morning yoga flows at sunrise will be whispering rejuvenation into your soul as the world awakes along the Delta and Khai. The picture-perfect settings will give you the feeling as though time is standing still and you will certainly be renewed after each session.
The remainder of the day will be spent on unique activities specific to the area, relaxation and self-reflection. The teams at Mopiri and Nokanyana will discuss all the activities on offer and you can do as little or as much as you would like to.
As the days draw to a close, you will find yourself back in nature for an afternoon yoga practice before sunset. An incredible way to end the day and quiet your mind before dinner under the starlit skies...

MOPIRI - WATER EXPERIENCE
Staying at Mopiri Camp offers a water experience right on your doorstep, with boating safaris, mokoro trips, bush walks, sunset cruises, star gazing and nights out at fly camp in the heart of the Delta. Game viewing is mainly aquatic - Hippos, Crocodiles, incredible birdlife, Elephant, Red Lechwe, and Sitatunga, to name a few.
Spacious tents set on the banks of Weboro Lagoon offer panoramic views from their private decks. Long winding boardwalks between the main area and the tents offer privacy, and the opportunity for guests to stretch their legs. The tents are light and airy and have en-suite bathrooms with large rain showers. The bathrooms are adjoined to the rooms by a short corridor, making the most of the view over the lagoon.
The “Little Island” is hidden away on the western side of the Okavango Delta.
Nokanyana - Bush & Safari
Staying at Nokanyana offers a game rich experience as wildlife moves right through camp. Days can be spent out on short morning and afternoon game drives, or full days out exploring areas further afield.
The “Little River” is situated close to the Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, only 120 kilometres from Maun.
With seven luxury rooms and three family suites set on the banks of the Khwai River, Nokanyana offers fantastic game viewing.
Rooms have been built to ensure that guests have a panoramic view of the bush around them. All have inside and outside showers, so you don’t have to miss a thing!
Days can be spent exploring the area, or simply relaxing and waiting for the wildlife to come by.
ABOUT THE OKAVANGO DELTA
The Okavango delta is a unique ecosystem with both a permanent and seasonal home to a wide variety of superb wildlife, a large concentrations of birds and lush vegetation. A recent overview of the Okavango records 122 species of mammals, 71 species of fish, 444 species of birds, 64 species of reptiles and 1300 species of flowering plants.
Animals include the African bush elephant, lion, hartebeest, wildebeest, sitatunga, eland, springbok, kudu, duiker, steenbok, gemsbok, sable antelope, impala, roan antelope, zebra, giraffe, African buffalo, ostrich, hippopotamus, black and white rhino, African wild dog, Nile crocodile, cheetah, leopard, baboon, spttend and brown hyena, warthog and the vervet monkey.
The most populous large mammal is the lechwe, a species of antelope, with more than 60,000. It is a bit larger than an impala with elongated hooves and a water-repellent substance on their legs that enables rapid movement through knee-deep water. They graze on aquatic plants, and like the waterbuck, take to water when threatened by predators. Only the males have horns.
Birds include the African fish eagle, crested crand, lilac-reasted roller, sacred ibis, Pel’s fishing owl and hamerkop.
Rainfall in the low season is typical although not excessive and temperatures sit around 30°C. Most migratory animals have dispersed from the delta, but wildlife viewing remains pretty impressive.
