Morning safaris, afternoon yoga and evenings by an open fire.
This is one African adventure you won’t forget!

Home to the Masai Mara and the Great Migration, Kenya is one of Africa’s best safari destinations. Kenyan safaris were also the inspiration behind Walt Disney’s 1994 blockbuster, “The Lion King”, so we hope you’re ready for a few childhood flashbacks.

Taking our knowledge from more than 10 years travelling, volunteering and living in East Africa, Adventure Out Loud has hand-crafted this adventure to ensure you get to explore Africa’s most exciting safari destinations, make a positive difference in the world and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul through yoga and meditation with the incredible Tamblyn Lord.

Highlights
  • Go BIG 5 spotting in Kenya’s best safari parks
  • Yoga and meditation with Tamblyn Lord
  • Fundraise to educate disadvantaged students through school
  • Meet your sponsor student and their family
  • Star gaze and swap stories around an open fire at a private safari camp
  • Pat baby elephants and hand-feed giraffes
  • Explore Kibera, Africa’s largest slum
  • AND MUCH MORE!

Make a difference
Sponsor a disadvantaged student as part of your adventure.

111 million African children didn’t go to school in 2017. We’re not ok with this and we’re doing something about it! 

With 47% of Africa’s population living below the poverty line, sponsoring a disadvantaged child through school is one of the best ways to fight poverty. Education empowers children to change their circumstances while educated women have fewer babies, a significant problem in Africa where birth rates are double the world average.

For less than $20 a week, you can make a real difference during your adventure. Simply tick the sponsor box when you register and we’ll send you a profile for a student who is looking for a sponsor.

About Tamblyn
Tamblyn (Tam) is an adventurer, actor and yoga instructor with a burning passion to explore.

An enthusiastic hiker, Tam found yoga 20 years ago when he was searching for a way to re-connect with the sense of wonder and perspective he felt when trekking through the Himalayas.

Tam has been teaching yoga since 2003 and has a Level 3 Senior registration with Yoga Australia, making him one of the most experienced Hot Yoga and Vinyasa practitioners in the country. Tam has facilitated yoga courses in China with Lance Schuler and is experienced teaching all levels. Tam is currently working with Yoga Flame in Melbourne and is the soothing voice behind the Smiling Mind meditation app.

Having studied at the Sivananda Ashram (India) and with many of the world’s most well-known yogis – among them Shiva Rea, Baron Baptiste and Rod Stryker – Tam has a unique ability to empower students to reconnect.

“Teaching is a privilege; it’s like conducting energy. Concentrating on the twin foundations of core stability and breath awareness allows the body to respond appropriately and the mind to focus. It’s an opportunity for us to observe our life force inflow”.

Tam’s passion to explore has taken him through some of the most beautiful wilderness on the planet and now Tam is excited to lead you on an unforgettable yoga safari in Africa’s most exciting safari destinations.

FAQs

Do I need any yoga experience?

No. Tam is experienced at teaching all levels. Our group will only be 12 people so Tam is able to provide one-on-one direction and it is also possible to offer beginner and experienced classes throughout the day.

What does a typical day look like?

The best time to see the animals is early morning and late afternoon. Therefore, a typical days on safari will look like:

5:30am – Lite breakfast
6 – 10am – Game drive
10 – 11am – Brunch
11am – 3pm – Yoga, meditation, relaxing by the pool and lunch.
3 – 6pm – Afternoon safari
7 – 8pm – Dinner
8pm onwards – Relaxing by an open fire

Do I need to bring my own mat?

No. We will provide mats for you if you do not wish to bring your own.

Is Kenya safe?

Yes. Kenyans love visitors and most will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is extremely rare for anything bad to happen within Kenya’s national parks and we will not be travelling to the border regions where the Australian Government advises not to travel.

As with all travel, your biggest risk is being robbed or having a road accident. Travelling in a small group, avoiding popular tourist areas, travelling with reputable companies and having our experienced tour leaders and local team with you 24/7 significantly reduces these risks. See SmartTraveller or talk to our team for further travel advice.
