The yoga experience…

Most days are set to begin with a morning yoga practice out in nature. What better place to find yourself at sunrise? The picture-perfect settings will give you the feeling as though time is standing still and you will almost certainly be able to hear the surrounding nature and wildlife whispering rejuvenation into your soul as the world awakes.

The remainder of the day will be spent on excursions, shamanic sessions, relaxation or optional reiki or spa treatments.

As the days draw to a close, you will find yourself back in nature for an afternoon yoga practice. An incredible way to end the day and quiet your mind before dinner under the starlit skies..

  • The yoga practice is suited to all levels, from beginners to advanced. Your yoga teacher will adapt the practice to accommodate all guests.

  • During our retreat, guests will enjoy restorative, vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga, along with breathing techniques and meditation sessions.

  • Sessions focus on balancing your chakras, releasing tension, whilst being connected to nature

  • Experience relaxation, self-awareness and a deeper spiritual connection with yourself and a whole new culture

  • There will be 2 yoga sessions planned daily, all classes are options and aim to rejuvenate our guests, whilst also helping to build on your individual practice.

Nambwa Tented Lodge is within the heart of KAZA and the only lodge uniquely situated inside the Bwabwata National Park,  an area renowned for it's large herds of elephant. Offering 10 luxurious tents, nestled high in the majestic Jackalberry, Sausage and Knobthorn trees. Respecting the elephants’ right of way, the lodge is built in exquisite comfort above the African Wildlife. As night falls experience the drama and spectacle as it unfolds beneath you.

Nambwa's unquenchable desire to create the most authentic African experience takes you drifting down the unspoilt Kwando River. Explore the fauna and flora up close and personal on a bush walk or a game drive with experienced guides or paddle through the safe backwaters of the Kwando River in a traditional hand crafted mokoro. A visit to a traditional village allows you the opportunity to understand the local life and culture of our people. The infamous Horseshoe Lagoon is the ideal spot for a sunset yoga session after a riveting game drive.

Soak up the breathtaking sunsets together with hippos and large herds of elephants silhouetted in purple hues over the water.
