South Africa – as a holistic travel destination

When you embark on a Soul Journey holiday you are guaranteed to be in one of the most beautiful, sunny places in the world – southern Africa, the ideal destination for your holistic journey.

A place where natural sacred sites and spiritual shrines, temples, synagogues, kramats, mosques and cathedrals abound, and most faiths and spiritual traditions are practised. The large variety and availability of natural settings lend themselves to soul searching, in the mountains, at the ocean, in the African bush or desert. Explore the spirituality of the oldest living inhabitants of Southern Africa – the bushmen. View the magnificent rock paintings, which they have left for us to marvel at, as they depict the physical and spiritual dimensions.

Visit world famous tourist attractions (Table mountain, Maropeng -The Cradle of humankind, Mapungubwe, Robben island, The Kruger National Park, St. Lucia Isimangaliso Wetland Park) or venture off the beaten track to discover the diversity of this magical land, it’s people and it’s animals.

Shamans, astrologers, diviners and many more tap into the energy of Mother Africa and practise ancient or modern ways to explore oneself and expand ones consciousness.Holistic Fairs, full moon meditations, equinox as well as solstice ceremonies and various religious and spiritual events are celebrated in ways, which only a country as colourful and rich in culture and history such as South Africa can.

South Africa is home to many world class health and wellness centres and spa’s where one can be pampered, advised, healed and nurtured. Some offer treatments which can not be experienced anywhere else in the world. Holistic, complementary and traditional health practitioners of nearly all existing modalities from aromatherapy to zen, can be found in the cities and countryside. Juice bars, organic, natural or vegetarian restaurants offer delicious food for those seeking a healthy alternative.

For creative self exploration and expression the possibilities are endless:drumming, song, dance, colour and art in true vibrant African style…or eastern, western, and cosmopolitan styles…inspire your imagination!

So if sunshine and nature, ancient wisdom and modern diversity, joy and laughter are what you are after – South Africa has it all.
