The Lodge

Located in the Soutpansberg Sigurwana Lodge enhances the authentic back-to-nature experience. The unique lodge accommodation provides you with beautiful views across spectacular areas of natural scenic beauty and is the ideal place from which to explore the vast range of fascinating indigenous creatures and plants that inhabit the 5 500 ha hotspot of biodiversity.

Sigurwana Lodge is an intimate lodge which can accommodate a total of 12 guests in the beautiful bush chalets, the Ystervark and a luxurious safari tent that sleeps four people. Not surprisingly, they care deeply about the environment, and you’ll find the lodge is extremely eco-friendly, using spring water and solar-powered energy.

The main lodge features a covered outdoor seating area, as well as an indoor common room with an inviting fire place.

Breakfast and lunch are served in the lovely tendered garden at the main lodge while dinner is served in the indoor common area.

The Schedule

In the following, we would like to offer you a glimpse into a typical day on our Yoga Retreat by providing an overview of what these days typically entail. While we aim to maintain flexibility in our schedule, adjusting to factors such as the season, guests' interests, and weather conditions, we believe in providing a structured outline to give you an idea of what to expect during our time together.

On the first day, a private transfer will take you from OR Tambo International Airport to the Soutpansberg. The journey lasts approximately 5 hours, with an expected arrival around 1 pm. Our guide will greet you at the designated meeting point and accompany you on a 4×4 adventure to the lodge. Guests with their own (rental) car will receive detailed directions to a meeting point.

Upon arrival at the lodge, you will be warmly welcomed, and accommodations will be assigned. Lunch will be served in the main area, surrounded by the beautiful garden. In the afternoon, we'll embark on an initial stroll through the reserve, finding a serene spot for yoga asana practice to stretch our bodies after the journey. Dinner will be served in the well-crafted common area, providing a cozy setting, especially on colder evenings when the fireplace invites you to read a book, enjoy company, and warm up.

 

Here's a brief overview of how a typical day might unfold:

6:00

| Morning Meditation

7:00

| Breakfast

8:00

| Morning activity: We go out for a walk or a game drive to explore the nature. Midway we move our body

  through a yoga asana practice.

| At around 12 o'clock we arrive back at the lodge.

12:00

13:00

| Lunchtime

14:00

| Time for yourself to relax, to enjoy the beautiful surrounding , to read a book or take a nap.

15:00

 Afternoon activity: We go out on another walk or drive into nature. Again we use the time out there to practice

  different aspects of yoga.

18:00

| Enjoy the sunset, relax in front of the fireplace and unwind after an eventful day.

19:00

On our drives and walks we learn more about the flora and fauna of the region, which is unique and diverse in the Soutpansberg region. Surrounded by this beautiful wilderness we use the time not only to explore nature but to practice the different aspects of yoga. The morning starts with a calming meditation while the birds start singing and the sun comes up. While out in the bush we practice yoga asana, combined with breathing exercises and relaxation. Through out the week there will be a red thread of yoga philosophy that weaves into our daily practices, where you might find some inspiration and learn more about yourself.

There is only one thing more amazing than practicing yoga, it is to practice yoga in such a stunning natural environment.
