Tour Overview

The aim of a yoga safari is to combine the experiences of a fantastic safari with feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and healthier through yoga. We make sure you feel welcomed, not as a guest, but as a friend on your yoga safari as you experience the mind-expanding benefits of both yoga and a wildlife safari. Visit Murchison Falls, Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth and Bwindi Impenetrable National Parks as well as Lake Bunyonyi. Activities include gorilla and chimpanzee trekking, game drives and boat cruises as well as yoga classes during the safari. If yoga has always been something you’ve been wanting to dip your toes in, then a yoga safari is for you. You will find yourself in a stress-free, judgement-free space – perfect for beginner and intermediate yogis.

Day by Day Overview

Arrive in Entebbe where we will pick you up from the airport and transfer you to Kampala for check-in at your hotel for dinner and overnight.
Early in the morning we will pick you up from the hotel and transfer you to Murchison Falls National Park for a 45 minutes hike to the top of the Falls for the pictures. After the hike, check-in to the lodge. We will end the day with a beautiful outdoor yoga session in the warm light of the setting sun; let yourself be guided through some soft and smooth movements. After two days of travelling your bodies will appreciate some stretches, attention and love. End the session with a guided meditation to ground yourself and arrive consciously in this new adventure. Listen inside. Is there any part of your body that needs more attention? Are there any doubts or fears that arise from this new situation that you find yourself in? Now is the time to look at them and invite them into the warm love of your soul and the warmth of the sun.

An early wake up and rise by 6 am for a quick cup of coffee or tea and a snack before setting out for the early game drive in Murchison Falls National Park. Divided by the River Nile, the northern part of the park is largely covered by savannah and woodland supporting a large volume and variety of animals compared to the southern region, which has a bigger chunk covered by forest. As such game drives are done in the northern area of Murchison Falls. The early start offers a better chance to find elusive predators such as lions, hyenas, leopard and jackal because they are still out actively hunting. Explore the game trails towards the Lake Albert delta which is concentrated with big game such as elephants, buffaloes, giraffes and many antelope. Enjoy the beautiful savannah landscape that is immersed with plenty of life and wonderful scenery.

The game drive will last for 4 hours and then return to the lodge for breakfast and relax. After lunch set out for a 2-hour boat cruise which sets off at Paraa, heading upstream to the base of the Murchison Falls. The boat ride offers an array of wildlife sightings: crocodile, hippos and lizards are a common sight throughout the cruise. Big game such as buffaloes, elephants and antelopes can also be sighted drinking and cooling off in the heat along the river bank. After the boat trip you can set out for a 45 minute hike to the top of the falls with great views of the falls at different spots along the trail. On reaching the top you will find the tour guide waiting to drive you back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

After breakfast drive to Kibale Forest National Park. After arriving at our next lodge we will spend the afternoon connecting with each other in a yoga class that consists of beautifully chosen partner asanas. Moving is beautiful, but moving together even more. Before we head over to the dinner table you are invited to sink in again and reflect on the last few days, all the new experiences and impressions you sucked in. Your yoga teacher will help you travel through body and mind using the power of your breath.

Have you ever stretched your bodies while gazing over the stunning view of the crater lakes? Today is the day, before observing chimpanzees in the afternoon. We will move our bodies, stretch those limbs, flow through movements using our own rhythm of breath. Communicate with us. Are you feeling tired and in need of relaxation for your mind and muscles? Are you feeling stiff from sitting and observing and wish for movement and power? Your yoga teacher will be happy to adjust the class to your needs. Crater lakes. Deep blue gateways to something that is unknown. Silent and peaceful they will be lying there in front of us. We invite you to use this beautiful environment to travel within. Where is your source of silence and peace? Find yourself a comfortable spot, tune in with your breath and explore. Namaste. We will have lunch at our lodge and later drive to the park headquarters for our fascinating chimpanzee trekking experience.

Your yoga teacher will help you travel through body and mind using the power of your breath.

After your morning breakfast, we will start driving to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest with game viewing en route in Ishasha for 2-3 hours. Look out for tree climbing lions and other savannah wildlife species  like elephants, buffaloes, hyenas and leopards. Lunch on the way as you proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Park. On arrival check in to your lodge for dinner and overnight.

We will have breakfast and then drive to the park headquarters by 7 am for a briefing about your gorilla trekking experience. Then set off for this remarkable experience of searching for the famous mountain gorillas. The activity takes 2-9 hours depending on the movement of the gorillas in the jungle, however the thrill of encountering these humble and gentle giants erases the memories you went through while finding them. While looking out for the gorillas expect to meet a few other forest species such as monkeys, forest elephants, duikers, birds and more. We will then check out of Bwindi to drive to Lake Bunyonyi for late check in and dinner at our lodge.

A day to give love to your body and soul. After a relaxed breakfast we will start our day with some simple asanas to wake up the body. You’re invited to let yourself fall and explore the magical world of acro yoga. Learn how to fly. Learn how to carry the world on your feet. In several units you will get to know basic exercises to create trust, strengthen your balance and get to know yourself and others better. All levels are welcome, we will start from the beginning and grow together.

Acro yoga is a fusion of yoga, acrobatic and Thai massage. In this beautiful practice we have to work together in groups. Our principles will be honesty, acceptance and trust. Without those we will not be able to fly together. Be gentle to yourself and others and communicate openly with the group. Every acro yoga session will end with a guided Thai massage within the group to give thanks and love to our bodies. Use this day to follow your needs and do good to yourself. There are facilities in the lodge to relax and take a break from travelling and exploring. You’re invited to take part in an afternoon yoga class as well, before we have dinner together.

After coming back to Entebbe there will be enough time to share and end this beautiful adventure together. In the evening there will be one last movement together. In our last acro yoga session we will touch the clouds together with a lot of playful exercises and practices. Lets move, enjoy and laugh together before we all head back home.
