Approximately a three-hour drive north of Johannesburg, this 22000 hectares malaria-free reserve boasts five eco-systems. A gravel road leads up to this "Big 5" reserve, complemented by five different lodges. Each lodge comprises a unique blend of luxury and African wilderness, perfectly set in different immaculate locations of the reserve. The upper escarpment offers majestic craggy rock formations and wide-open grass plains. This is separated from the lower plateau by 600m high cliffs. The lower escarpment is approximately three degrees warmer and comprises of "sandveld" vegetation and a series of wetlands. It is a place where the lion still reigns as king and Mother Nature still mesmerizes with her power and beauty. Your modern African adventure starts here!


You will be staying in Ravine Side Lodge at Entabeni Safari Conservancy during the retreat. Located under the shadow of Entabeni Mountain, the thatched wooden lodge is built on stilts and hugs the cliff's edge, offering magnificent views of the unspoiled ravines and wooded hillsides. The lodge offers double and twin chalets, leading onto open sundecks where guests can indulge in bird and game watching while experiencing the grandeur of the ravine whilst listening to the rippling sound of the water from below the valley. The bedrooms all have an African ethnic theme and a number of stairs to climb. The lodge has 22 rooms available. You will be sharing your cabin with another student. If you are traveling with someone, please inform The Space Yoga Fitness Studio so they can be sure to book you in the same cabin. Pairing of cabins will be done according to age and gender.
