Awakening your African Soul with Ruth Underwood and Victoria More
South Africa: 26th September – 11th October 2017
South Africa is an exquisite country full of beauty and warmth. Its landscapes are breathtaking and the energy of the land, animals and its people will enfold you. This journey is designed to give you a wide variety of experiences and a deep immersion into your connection with the land, nature spirits, and the wild African animals.
We begin our journey in the unique urban geography of Cape Town with a visit to the top of Table Mountain, one of the 7 new natural wonders of nature. At over 260 million years old, Table Mountain is one of the oldest mountains in the world. Held in this nurturing and revitalizing energy we’ll explore the chakras of the Cape Peninsula with a hike in the mountains to ancient caves and burial sites and a journey to Cape Point.
Following a short overnight stay in Johannesburg, where there will be an opportunity to visit the Origins Centre and to shop in the local neighbourhoods and african market, we head for the province of Mpumalanga.
One of the highlights of this journey will be our time in the bushveld – the Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. It’s high density of wild animals includes lions, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo as well as many smaller mammals, reptiles and birds. Here we deepen our immersion into the animal kingdom as we have the rare opportunity to walk with experienced rangers in the wild. This gives us the opportunity to learn about tracking, and absorb our senses into the tastes, sounds and sights of the wilderness up close. Our camp will be the Rhino Walking Safari camp, and from here we’ll go to the Unicorn camp at Tsau, home to the White Lions of Timbavati.
Our journey ends with three days close to the Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world. Our lodge is in a wildlife conservancy with a view of the canyon. We’ll explore both the top and bottom of the canyon and have time to relax as well as shop at the local shops and markets. Many of the places we visit lie on the Nilotic meridian, a ley line that runs through the length of Africa, connecting many sacred sites from the Giza plateau to those in Southern Africa.
