A retreat with a difference, for busy (stressed) people looking to get more from life, including balance and purpose.


The Lower Zambezi - the perfect place to disconnect from the busy-ness of life to reconnect with yourself and your purpose in life. The retreat incorporates a mix of quiet time mingled with lodge-based activity, adventure, canoeing, wild camping, star gazing, campsite conversations, bush trek and a game drive.

A real adventure with the opportunity to have a total technology detox. (4 out of the 8 nights)

You will learn how to manage stress more effectively, how to meditate (guided), unravel your emotional triggers and how to recognise emotional trauma/issues, and how to get rid of it to remove any blocks which are preventing you from living your best life.

If you would like to write a book or get clarity around a particular issue, or you want to re-evaluate your life, or reconnect with your ‘why’, or simply recharge in a magical place, then this is the retreat for you.

Stop judging yourself
by what happens to your in life, so you're not basing your confidence on outside events.
Forgive yourself
and others for past mistakes. Harbouring old grudges takes up a lot of time and energy which you could be using in more productive ways.
Learn to think differently
When you fall into self-criticism, notice them and change them to positive thoughts.
Set goals/outcomes
on the basis of what you can realistically achieve, and then work step-by-step to develop your potential. Acknowledge small achievements which take you closer to your end outcome.
Emphasise your strengths
Focus on what you can do rather than what you cannot.
self-confidence and self-esteem are learnt behaviour, and with practice can be built.
