meet us as we are
From a high-paced career and urban lifestyle to slow life in the bush.
After years of traveling and high-paced corporate careers, it was time for change. We discovered the importance of the nature and our innate power to positively impact the mental & physical well-being. A change in lifestyle, merged with time spent in nature, looking up the night sky, and mindfulness practices is all it takes.
Driven by lifelong passions to explore (human) nature and valuable lessons from corporate careers and burnout, an idea of a transformational wilderness retreat was born.
We sold everything we owned and set for the journey to South Africa to find our new home and place for people to think & see clearly and reset the course of life towards more whole and joyful life.
After months of searching, we have arrived here at the banks of the Doring River where we felt instantly home.

Maya, Kulula and Lulu. Our favorite pastime is hanging out with humans and sprinting through plains, hills, and beaches. We found our purpose early on in life: To convince humans to go for walks and play with us. We love meditation, yoga, and stargazing.
Nothing compares to seeing humans unwind and live in the moment because it’s the perfect opportunity for us to chill and take a nap. Snoring breath meditation while under the stars on a comfy blanket is one of our all-time favorite things to do.
