Luxury Yoga Safari
Our unique Exotic Yoga African Safaris invites you into a magical world of nature, walking and driving safaris, intimate cultural experiences, culinary and wine tasting — and a deep exploration of your inner nature through power of yoga and meditation.
Flow of the Day
Mornings are glorious and full of wonder as we head out early morning on a guided walking or driving safari. Commune with animals, birds, trees and plants as we take our morning safari in silence. Upon return to the lodge, we delicious brunch. Then there is free time to rest, swim in the pool, spot wildlife nearby, or stroll on the lodge’s self-guided nature trail.
After a leisurely siesta, convene for an afternoon Hatha yoga session outdoors on the peaceful safari lodge grounds, then join in cultural adventures such as having lunch in a local village or visiting a fascination Unesco World Heritage site. Late afternoon before we set out for our sunset safari, luxuriate in an elegant high tea and prepare for another magical adventure on the savannah!
The hours after sunset are for enjoying the profound relaxation that comes from living according to nature’s cycle. Eat together al fresco under the glittering night sky. It is a calm time to share the experiences, insights, and joys of the day.
Tuli Safari Lodge

Our gem of a lodge, Tuli Safari Lodge in the rugged Tuli Reserve (famous for Africa’s largest elephant herds), is a complete retreat with its own pool, walking trails, and gardens.
