Nambwa with its power to draw in elephants along their age-old migratory routes welcomes you to tap into the wisdom of your heart.

Nambwa Tented Lodge suite

We invite you to immerse yourself into a sphere of healing energy at Nambwa Tented Lodge nestled high amongst majestic trees, honouring the elephants’ right of way below. An authentic walkway joins ten decadently spacious tented suites, which emanate a feeling of vastness and evoke a gentle balance of serenity.

Tinolla will be your host, together with the experienced team and carefully selected facilitators for enchanting retreats that merges with the grandeur of the natural environment.

Our retreats will offer you a variety of modalities embedded in pristine wilderness locations where you will be guided into inner journeys of healing and compassion for yourself, others, and all of Nature. You may find deep emotional freedom work, or embark on shamanic journeys beside hippo pools. You may even find healing in art projects, or find leisure, silence, and fresh air to rest and digest. At all times you will be creating memorable moments as you explore the area on foot, by boat or vehicle. You will be carried and embraced by your facilitator and our team throughout.

“Do not let the past disturb you, just leave everything in the sacred heart and begin again with joy!

Healing Meals

We are here to create a transformational safari experience that focuses on actively improving your wellbeing with fun, immersive wellness adventures. To support your energetic or physical release during the retreat we ensure our menus are fully balanced when it comes to micro and macro nutrients. Our menus are made up of nutrient dense foods that are gentle on the digestion and that gives you energy and makes you happy.

Our trained Local Chefs will carefully prepare meals tailored to fortify your healing journey with natural ingredients.

We offer mostly plant-based food on our retreats and occasionally there will be optional sustainably and ethically well sourced animal-based products.

Allow us to cater to your specific dietary requirements by advising our reservation consultants upon booking.

Our retreat meal plans could be based on either of the below:

  • Vegan
  • Vegetarian
  • Pegan
  • Fasting
  • Keto
  • Sattvic Meal Plan

Our fresh ingredients are sourced from The Sijwa Project, our sustainable conservation project located along the banks of the Kwando river, where we pride ourselves with the strict Permaculture principles followed from planting to harvesting.

“Much more important than any words spoken is to live with our hearts open, to empty ourselves of false beliefs, to be mindfully anchored in the present moment, to no longer be caught up in our false personas…to be awake. To realize that every man, woman, child, bird, insect, flower, cloud, river and tree that we look upon is another reflection of our original face, a unique creative expression of this entire Universe.”
