Cape Town-based luxury safari company, Ker and Downey Africa, has launched its first Women’s Luxury Yoga Retreat and Safari – set to take place from October 22 to 30.

The safari company – in collaboration with expert yoga practitioner, Joëlle Sleebos – has created a nine-day, female-only yoga retreat that it hopes will become an annual event.

“Our experience as luxury travel co-ordinators has long shown us the lasting benefits that travel has on the mind, body and soul of our clients,” says Jenieen van den Heever, Head of Operations at Ker and Downey Africa.

The retreat will visit Cape Town, the Cape Winelands and the Greater Kruger, where guests can look forward to morning and afternoon yoga classes, dining and safari experiences.

It will be hosted across five accommodation options that include Arambrook Boutique Hotel, Santé Wellness Retreat and Spa and Saseka Tented Camp.
