Ranger Barry Bath takes us through the biological process of feeling 'happy' and how a simple day on safari triggers a chemical cascade of happy hormones. From a good sleep; watching the light slowly fade at the end of the day; the excitement of tracking and finding a wild animal; to simply sipping on your coffee in the middle of the wilderness... it's the simple moments on an African safari that release a chemical cascade resulting in pure contentment.

Not only can a sensation trigger a memory but it can also evoke an emotion, an emotion associated with that memory. Senses can take us back to a memory and leave us with nostalgia. A safari is a melting pot for the senses, fusing African scents, local cuisine, wild sounds, intricate textures with a visually extraordinary setting. Let your senses drift and bring you back on safari…

"Never underestimate what lengthy periods of relaxation in nature can do for your health" For many, a classic safari is only about amazing wildlife, game drives and an adventure into the wild; and wellness a term simply referring to one's health. In truth the more you dive into your safari experience - the more you will see how linked these terms really are. We now have the evidence to prove that being in nature, and being on safari, has a positive effect on mind, body, and nervous system.
"If one simply looks at a classic safari you can't help but find it full of wellness". Today's blog highlights the link between safari and wellness.

The more you break apart your safari experience the more you will see how linked these terms really are.

“One minute you’re in the hustle and bustle, and then you step away from it and into this calm oasis. Everything stills. You’re gazing up at a 5-meter tall aloe that is quietly mesmerizing you with its own magical milkyway. The harder you look, the more you see. Let nature be your guru. There’s a flap-necked chameleon gripping onto the mighty aloe. There are sunbirds and luna moths and dragon flies. I need some lucky beans in there too…” Healing House Wall Paper, Wall Mural
