Will be that moment in time that defines us and, who we want to be. For Africa offers an unparalleled opportunity to discover we can take care of ourselves in all circumstances while affirming with no equivocations,
We CAN navigate OUR WORLD.
In this fully-inclusive adventure, you will experience history, culture, and nature; tastings, drink, and people — extraordinary locals — who will show you South Africa in all its variations of warmth, kinship and hospitality. You will experience yourself and what you are worthy of receiving and becoming.
For those wishing to extend their stay to a full 14 days, a safari in Kruger National Park rounds out your experience as you live in the bush and view Africa’s Big 5 beautiful and endangered species.
Here are the requirements: Willingness to rewrite your story, courageousness, well-adjusted & travel-ready, supportive of your sisters with a glowing sense of independence and adaptability. That said, you will never be on your own. Lastly, we seek women who are truly prepared. Prepared to be astounded, inspired, moved, and willing to meet your sisters & South Africa with an open heart and mind.
