The Eden mountains are summoning you… come with a willingness to surrender and connect, to be vulnerable and to be transformed

The first-ever AfriCamps yoga retreat is here and we invite you to reconnect, unwind and explore. We invited local yoga instructor, Malaika Boon from The Nomadic Oasis to get a sneak peek of life on Oakhurst farm in Wilderness. Malaika was welcomed by the the tweeting of birds, distant moos of the Oakhurst cows and a large dose of fresh farm air. And so, our idea to host visitors for an AfriCamps yoga retreat became a reality. In collaboration with The Nomadic Oasis, AfriCamps brings you 4 days and 3 nights of relaxation, restoration and tranquility. The closeness to nature offered when glamping with AfriCamps sets the perfect foundation for a 3-night yoga escape. Introducing the Reawakening Winter Yoga and Holistic Healing Immersion.

Meet Malaika, your instructor

Malaika trained as a yoga teacher in Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga in Rishikesh, India. A month of specialising in prenatal Yoga in the sacred and deeply transformational Costa Rican jungles lead Malaika to realise a profound desire to hold space for Women. She now creates, facilitates and encourages women to join in sisterhood and offers support and love for healing, inner exploration, growth and a softening into the body. With a background in psychology, her immersions, teachings and classes are grounded in traditional yogic practices and philosophies, and are subtly woven together with shadow integration, the art of returning to or relearning how to feel and be present in the body (Womb work) and connection – to nature, self and others. Her work and teachings are intended to reawaken one’s connection to their body and feelings – the safe-keepers of intuition and desire, ultimately enhancing our ability to live life with the fullness and presence that makes one feel A L I V E and W H O L E.

Such an inspirational woman! Malaika is so passionate about her work and you can see and feel it as she guides you through the process of yoga and meditation. She creates a safe space without judgement so you may easily find balance and centre yourself to continue your journey in life with peace, love and fulfillment. Thank you for being you! – R. Joubert

The Nomadic Oasis and AfriCamps yoga experience

During the AfriCamps yoga retreat, you will escape to the Garden Route’s lesser known farm lifestyle. Join Mother Nature and fellow sisters on a journey to reconnect to your intuitive nature. Explore the power of sisterhood and connection and rekindle your intrinsic link to nature.

Our 4-day, 3-night Yoga & Nature immersion calls to all women who feel a strong call to connect with their intuitive knowing and body on a deeper, soulfully exploratory way, led by the peaceful Garden Route surroundings.

The retreat is an inward journey of devotion. Experience the healing power of connection with fellow women, nature, sensuality, body and creativity.

The Reawakening Immersion will offer you tools and insights to continue and deepen your Self practice once you leave the safekeeping of Eden’s tented haven. – Malaika
