Event description


LivLife BIGGER® UNPLUGGED feat. ZimbaYoga

A retreat for global changemakers to recharge body, mind and spirit.

Leave feeling more grounded, aligned, inspired and most of all ALIVE and ready to serve the world powerfully!

You know that in order to serve at your best, time out for YOU is important. But there is just so much to do! ‘Next year’ you say. Then next year comes around and there’s even more important work to do, that you’re needed for.


Unplugged is for those who are on a mission to transform the world we live in. Its for those who want to leave behind a thriving and sustainable world for future generations as well as a legacy.

At times the scale of what you’re out to achieve can feel overwhelming. You’re either concerned about the HOW, or you’re so immersed in detail that you start to operate in a bubble where you occasionally lose sight of the big picture. Or, something happens that moves things backwards three steps. At times you even forget WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.

It can also be a lonely journey at times, even with the most supportive people around you.

Unplugged was created to give you the TIME and SPACE to CONNECT with:

  1. your body,

  2. your mind,

  3. your purpose,

  4. a tribe of other inspiring individuals

  5. the world around you. For those who’ve never been on an African safari before, this is THE ONE.

Join a small group of incredible human beings to connect with yourself, with others, with nature and with the majesty of the animal kingdom in an African Safari adventure.

This is for you if you:

  • Are great at being driven and ambitious, but less great at ‘taking it easy’

  • Want ‘more than just a holiday’

  • Love adventure, new experiences and thrive out of your comfort zone

  • Enjoy food

  • Is in good health and has an average level of fitness (no previous yoga / mindfulness / meditation experience required)

  • Have a healthy respect for wild animals

  • Sees the value in building strong, supportive communities

  • Enjoys learning from others and getting to know people from all walks of life

  • Want to get connected, inspired & aligned!


The world is in a state of awakening, the rate of which is speeding up. In order to facilitate this, it becomes even more urgent for those of us who are leading the charge - working to raising the consciousness of the planet, to be operating at our highest vibration in peak flow state. That involves time out connecting with ourselves, each other and getting curious about the world around us.


Amakhala Game Reserve is a Big 5 (lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and buffalo) Safari destination and located in the malaria-free Eastern Cape of South Africa. This 7,500 ha protected reserve is renowned for its truly awesome topography, created by the slowly meandering Bushman’s River running through it. The area is semi-arid and also consists of a range of bird and plant life.

Set in the Greater Addo area, the reserve is 90 km and an hour’s drive away from Port Elizabeth. You’ll enjoy a world-class safari experience, with luxury lodging and brilliant wildlife sightings. An abundance of animals call the reserve home. See them on game drives, or from the comfort of your room.

Amakhala has a strong conservation ethos. The families that collectively own the reserve belong to a conservation committee. A 20-member Land and Game Department looks after the area.

SAFARI LODGE - an undisturbed retreat where you can regenerate your soul and tune into the sounds of nature

African tribal design-inspired owners and artists, Mike and Justine Weeks’ meticulous attention to detail is reflected in the fine African beadwork and handcrafted designs that are evident throughout this prestigious lodge. This thatched FAIR TRADE lodge with its unique safari suites and signature stone-capped roof tops, offers all the comforts of a luxury lodge. The view is of the waterhole where monkeys come to play and antelope and zebra to quench their thirst.

BUKELA LODGE - a secluded safari destination tucked away at the top of a hidden valley.

Connected by a wooden walkway, our thatched suites offer a remarkable private wildlife-viewing experience. Indulge in sumptuous high teas, candlelit dinners or exciting fireside boma dinners under African stars. And as you fall asleep, hear the silence broken by the unmistakeable sounds of elephant and buffalo making their stately progress through the unfenced camp.
