KWA-ZULU NATAL, SOUTH AFRICA & PONTO DO OURO, MOZAMBIQUE
Dolphins speak to us of the rhythm of our emotions: breathing in joy before plunging into the depth and then rushing to the surface to do it all over again.
WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE?
Dolphins and Elephants are the main features in this Adventure. They have much in common, they are lead by a Matriarch, they are self-aware and have amazing intelligence and intuition. They are beings you can connect intimately and soulfully with, inspiring awe and admiration.
WHERE WILL WE STAY:
Our first stop for 3 nights is Tembe Elephant Park and Lodge. This is the home of some of the biggest Tuskers in the world, as well as endangered species like the African Wild Dog. We sleep in private, luxury tents, embedded in the bush. It is safe because the accommodation area is tastefully fenced off so none of the more dangerous animals or elephants can get too close. The lodge is hosted and administered by the local Tonga people as a local community initiative.
After 3 days of safari we cross the close-by Mozambican border and journey over grassed sand dunes, past smiley, friendly faces to the Bay of Gold – Ponto Do Ouro. Here we are hosted at Gala Gala Eco Lodge that has comfy, ethnically decorated rooms, 500 meters from a private beach. The lodge also has a hot tub, wifi, swimming pool and kitchen facilities, for between delicious restaurant seafood meal, catering. The resort offers a Full English breakfast or a choice of vegan and gluten-free meals.
Both venues are fully catered.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN EACH DAY & NIGHT
.Whilst stating at Tembe Elephant Park we will safari each day and enjoy self-reflective group discussions after game drives to gain life-changing insights from elephant and wild animal encounters.
In Ponto Do Ouro, weather permitting, we will launch daily to swim with wild, free-swimming dolphins. The dolphins know my co-facilitator, Angie well. She has researched, swum with, and done all she can to protect the many pods of dolphins in this bay. They know her well so when we are with her they know we can be trusted, which makes dolphin swims more social and engaging. Swimming with dolphins is an exhilaration beyond words. We follow a strict code of conduct when swimming with dolphins in their honor as they allow us into their watery domain.
