Luxury Nourish & Connect Desert Yoga Retreat, 6-9 June, Augrabies

Explore, replenish and reconnect with the wonder of Yoga at the spectacular, luxury Tutwa Desert Lodge.

This retreat invites you to let go of your stresses, worries and fears in a luxurious environment that welcomes you to discover and reconnect with your body, emotions and mind. Witness the vastness of the desert reflecting the scope of our capabilities to care for and rejuvenate ourselves.


Give yourself the space to rediscover and revitalize meaningfully while immersed in nature through daily practices of Yoga, mindfulness, breathing exercises, game drives, river paddles and bush walks.


In the heart of the barren Green Kalahari lies an oasis of tranquil luxury. Tutwa Lodge is a serene sanctuary on an unblemished tract between the Green Kalahari and the mighty Orange River. As a Tutwa guest you enjoy the pleasure of a unique private wilderness safari over 16 000ha of land. Boasting 24km of Orange River frontage, Tutwa is a source of life and bounty in a wild, ancient desert. This rewarding wilderness encounter features safari drives, nature paddles, birding and interactive conservation experiences.
