This 9 night, 10 day retreat in the Province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, will include four nights  a Big 5 Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal, two nights in the Drakensberg Mountains, and three nights near Durban. The first two nights  you will stay at a bed and breakfast near the beach in Umhlanga Rocks (about 20 minutes north of the Durban City Center) and the last night will be at the Ammazulu African Palace, a small boutique hotel overlooking the Kloof Nature Reserve. While in the Game Reserve we will have the opportunity to go on game drives each morning and afternoon in open Land Cruisers with our own game ranger. The reserve is host to lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and buffalo.


The cost of $3,450 includes all accommodation, food, tea and coffee and transport while in South Africa. It excludes airfare to South Africa, drinks, and any gratuities to game rangers and hotel staff.

Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth.
Once you have been there you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths?
Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings, the cradle of mankind,
where our species first stood upright on the savannahs of long ago?
