The Invitation

Conscious conception is to live as an invitation for life to come home

It calls you to go deeper within, to speak from your heart and reach beyond, through the veil of this world. 

Are you ready to go on a journey into your heart of hearts and to bring forth & birth that which resides within?

This retreat is the ideal escape for couples to find deep connection to self and one other in holistic preparation for the miracle of conscious conception.

Join Liezl on this 5-day transformative retreat in the Bwabwata National Park in the East Zambezi Region of Namibia, that will allow you and your partner to immerse yourselves fully in the grace of conscious conception.

The Invitation is the perfect opportunity to unplug from all distractions and envelop yourself fully in the journey of calling in a new addition to your life. It is a pilgrimage of personal growth & creation where you get to explore not only the science of fertility, but also the deeper energetic nuance of connection & conception. Presented in a fun hands on approach you will receive potent practices, rituals, recipes & information that you can use daily to nurture the connection to yourself & your partner as you prepare to consciously bring new life into the world. 

Dusty and Tinolla will be your hosts, together with their experienced team and Liezl Hoving as your facilitator, for a life-changing retreat against the grandeur of this pristine natural environment.

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.

Parenting begins the moment you make any conscious effort to care for your own health in preparation for enhancing your child’s conception.

Healing Meals

We are here to create a transformational safari experience that focuses on actively improving your wellbeing with deliberate & thoughtful touches in all we do. One of the areas where we really show our commitment to creating a healing space is in our daily meals. During the retreat we ensure our menus are supportive of the eating ethos that you will be learning in preparation for conception.

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. Meal times will allow you to savour lavish nourishing food prepared fresh daily. We are also happy to cater to your specific dietary requirements, please advise our reservation consultants upon booking.

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

  • Vegan
  • Vegetarian
  • Pegan

Liezl Hoving

Liezl Hoving

Liezl has a deep love & reverence for where science meets the spiritual. For the last decade she has focused on honing her skills as yoga instructor & coach, specialising in a therapeutic approach to the practice that honors all bodies and all minds. She has completed over 1200 hours in training that spans traditional styles of yoga as well as in-depth understanding of anatomy & physiology, psychology, pre-natal and trauma-informed approaches. Her earliest training experiences in India ignited a flame for cultivating the sacred heart of the practice.

In the last two years, after having experienced two pregnancy losses, she took a deep dive into the realm of conscious conception. She has explored trauma release, conscious coupling, dance, sacred sexuality, nutrition, plant allies, hormonal health and fertility to create a profound and all-encompassing approach to conscious conception. She also brings to bear all her past experiences as a teacher, coach, masseuse, chef and yogi to lend nuance & balance to the path that calls for individualised action with surrender & grace. 


‘Hope is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all -

Emily Dickinson
