Yoga Safari in Kenya’s Masai Mara
Friday June 8 – Friday June 15, 2018
With Leslie Glickman and Annabelle Teleki
Leslie Glickman & Annabelle Teleki led the Yoga Safari of a lifetime in February/March of 2016, and are now planning a 2nd trip to the Masai Mara for Summer 2018 – do not miss this one! Space is limited to 16 people. We will stay in a luxury safari camp in the heart of the Masai Mara, where we will practice daily yoga in an open air tent overlooking the bush, with animals in the distance! Enjoy a short walk to visit the hippos in the nearby river…as you prepare for sleep in your luxury tent, you may hear the lions roaring in the distance. Prepare to have your mind and heart blown wide open as we are led each morning and evening by our exceptional guides, Masai men who are local to the Mara. We will share delicious home-cooked meals in our glorious dining tent, and out in the bush. There will be 2 game drives offered daily in addition to daily yoga and meditation with Leslie and Annabelle, an optional visit to the nearby Masai Village, and an optional hot air balloon ride…and SO MUCH MORE!!
We hope you can join for this “bucket-list” once in a lifetime yoga journey with Leslie & Annabelle!
Our retreat center is small and intimate, space is limited and will likely sell fast! Your Non-Refundable 50% deposit will secure your spot.
“I’ve always loved animals and knew I would one day make my way to Africa to see the most amazing animals on Earth on their turf. I finally did it in early 2016! And to have the opportunity to take this journey with Satya Retreats made it all the more special. Annabelle and Leslie were great leaders and travel partners. I practiced yoga in the most mind-blowing environment. Made amazing friends. Saw the most awe inspiring animals in their natural habitat. (At least two safaris every day!) Ate incredible food. Lived in the best environment. You cannot go wrong with Satya Retreats. I’m going back soon!”

“Leslie and Annabelle created an amazing experience for all the participants. Truly, no stone was left unturned…every detail was attended to with care. Our camp in the Masai Mara was perfection. The accommodations were luxurious, the food was amazing, the managers, Finley and Hanna, were darling, the staff were genuinely friendly and kind and the guides were incredibly knowledgeable and proud of their land and way of life. Their enthusiasm was infectious and made the game drives so much fun. I knew I was going to fall in love with the animals and the land but it was the people of the Masai Mara who stole my heart and were absolutely the best part of the trip. The safari excursions were incredible and the yoga was just icing on this incredibly delicious cake. If you are considering taking this trip I say “DO IT!” You will never regret it! ”

“Going to Kenya with Annabelle and Leslie truly was the “trip of a lifetime.” They looked after every detail, from customizing food for our group, to every travel detail and accommodation – nothing was left to us to manage. The game drives with the amazing Masai Warriors were beyond anything I could ever have imagined and certainly the highlight of our journey. Our camp in the Mara as a Yoga-Safari destination was simply perfect, there isn’t one thing I can think of that could have been improved upon. The knowledge and love for the land of our guides enriched the experience beyond words. When we left the Masai and the camp we truly felt we had left “family behind” as the connections ran so deep. The yoga outside in that amazing environment, so rich with animals and Mother Nature touched your soul in a way that no other place every could! I’d HIGHLY. recommend this trip to anyone and everyone.”

“My trip to Africa was amazing! I have been all over the world…all the continents…and yet Kenya was the best! It was the most amazing trip ever! Our chosen camp was wonderful. The staff were perfect – they couldn’t do enough to make the trip memorable. The location was exquisite. Everyday on our game drives we saw abundant amounts of animals. Each night the camaraderie was special. This is definitely a must do on anyone’s list and going with this group, to this location, is an opportunity not to be missed.”
