14 Days Hear the voice of Silence Safari

- This yoga retreat is available on several dates ("Select Dates" on right side panel) -


In the hectic pace of daily life in the West, nature brings rest and peace. The purer and less populated, the more you can relax. By slowing down and taking moments to be still and in addition to doing exercises that increase your vibrancy, you're more aware of what is happening in your inner world and the world outside of you. The reward is that you will see better how beautiful the present moment is; how you are constantly supported in your essential needs; how you can relax because nothing is threatening you; how you can relax more because you are a mature, powerful, capable human being and how you are part of an intelligent and coherent existence.

During this meditation-yoga retreat, you will experience different landscapes of the earth and your mind. A unique safari experience gets weaved with meditation, breath work, yoga, sharing and nature exercises to connect with yourself and others from the heart.

  • Exploration of unique trails and landscapes
  • Sufi breathing Meditation, Chakra meditation, Bio-energetic exercises, five rhythms Gabriëlle Roth

Travel information

Travel documents and visaAll travelers to Tanzania and Kenya need a passport and a return ticket to the country. The passport needs to be valid at least another six months. A visa is compulsory to enter Tanzania. You can apply for your visa from 3 months before departure at the Tanzanian Consulate in your country. You will receive the visa within 7 workdays. It is easier to collect your visum at the Tanzanian airport or border. Costs: $ 50


Time Difference: In summer Tanzania is 1 hour later than in The Netherlands and in winter 2 hours (in summer it’s GMT+2 and in winter it’s GMT+3). Look at the time difference in your owncountry.


Vaccinations: In Tanzania some vaccinations are recommended. Please make contact with the Tropical Centre in your country to get actual information. You can also ask them everything you need to know about Malaria prevention.


Clothes for traveling: It is advisable to travel and wear cotton clothes in the colours of the environment. Do bring a warm jumper for cool nights. You will need sunglasses and a hat or cap. More practical information will be provided after booking.


Money Matters: The local currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian shilling. 1 euro is about 2300 shilling. In bigger cities it is easy to pin money with your credit card, unfortunately it often doesn’t work with your bank card.


Tips drivers/guides: The tip for your guide/cook is between UDS 15 and 20 per person a day collected by the group.


Telephone and internet: Telephone and fax work reasonably well in Tanzania, although international conversations are very expensive. The best thing to do is replace your simcard with a Tanzanian one. Facebook and what’s app are very cheap then. Most resorts offer several free or cheap wifi in Tanzania. Please note that during our Safaris there will be several days you are out of reach.


Voltage: In Tanzania 240 Volt alternating current is used. You will need a plug with three flat pens.


Language: Swahili is becoming the international language of Africa and can therefore grow into one of the most important languages in the world. The major part of the population of Tanzania speaks English too.


What to bring

Bring good walking shoes, bandages for blisters and a pair of comfortable slippers.

Because of the bright afternoon sun it is advisable to bring suncream with a high protection factor (30) and also after sun. Try to find a natural suncream because there is a connection between skin cancer and these products.

Instructors

Alina de Vilder

Originally Alina is counselor and teacher of meditation techniques. She runs her own therapy/meditation centre in Hoorn (the Netherlands). In the past 25 years she collected a large scale of techniques from many diciplines like Mindfulness, Breathing meditations, Sufimethods, Yoga excersises, Relaxationmethods, Bio-energetic excersises and Visualisations. After a long career as a therapist/counselor she followed the adventure that crossed her path and started Mindful Adventure. She is happy that by founding Mindful Adventure The Masaï of Endonyowas will be assured with much needed income generated by the travelers. Furthermore Msafiri will have a better future and the dreamschool of Endonyowas will be supported.


Msafiri Mosses Kivuyo

Msafiri is a young professional guide and driver. He is a Masaï that grew up in Arusha. His name means ‘traveller’.

He is proud of his heritage despite the hard life that came with it. More then anything he longs to be more free in his life. This sense of being free gives him a natural and strong connection with truth. He follows his heart with Mindful Adventure and has been working hard to organize all practical aspects of the Safaris in Tanzania. He speaks good English and a little French. He wil provide you with all information about the people, landscapes, culture, history and off course the flora and fauna of his country. Sitting around the fire he can tell you many stories about the history and traditions of the Masaï. His humor and typical Msafiri laugh will be remembered by you when you return home.
