A zen safari

 I recently had a weekend full of yoga.

It was a great start to the year. We detoxed and worked on the mat. Had a few cooking lessons, leisurely meals (yes, we did eat...a little) and...a bit of safari.

We stayed in a tented camp, nestled into the bush of Nairobi National Park (can you spot the tents below?), fell asleep to the shrieking alarms of the hyraxes and woke to the loudest ever lion's roar. A peaceful change to that of security dogs barking  throughout the night.

It feels like I haven't been on my mat or exercised for ages. This week I have been feeling poorly, so am looking forward to feeling like 'me' again. Hopefully I'll be better by Friday, when my Mum arrives for a mini adventure. Yeahhhhhh!


  1. Oh, my! This looks like a truly unique experience, that of a "once-in-a-life-time" kind. Wonderful!

  2. wow beautiful pics!! How come u travel so much? I wish I could too =)

  3. that table set up amidst the trees reminds me of the outstanding in the field dinners! something i would love to experience...

  4. it was melissa-thanks.

    Elle-i live and work in Nairobi, so this park is only about 40 minutes away from my house-but it is still a treat.

  5. I have been reading through your blog posts and I am mesmerized, beautiful pictures!

    The majority of my family live in Cape Town, and my dad was born and raised in Zambia. Looking at your pictures has brought back such strong memories from when I was very little. Looking forward to reading more.

  6. Holly-thanks for visiting. Hope you come back (to my blog..and Africa!)

  7. Well, for some people, going to a safari is a way to relax and get away from the hectic urban lifestyle. Just being with nature and the wild can give one peace of mind. Your adventure in Africa sounds so wonderful.
