Amatikulu Forest and Ocean
THIS little pocket of indigenous coastal forest is situated along the Indian Ocean approximately 130 Km North–East of Durban. The landscape offers us the immense healing power of the forest, which is rich in medicinal plants, and the warm Indian Ocean. Escape the stresses of the office and city life and spend to days kayaking and hiking, listening to the roar of the waves and the cries or the African Fish Eagles.
At nght, we gather for story-telling around the campfire, and fall asleep to the calls of the Bushbabies.
We base ourselves at the forest camp on the banks of the river, with the simple comforts of a bucket shower and solar lamps; groundsheets, sleeping bags and tents if weather prevents sleeping in the open.
We spend one day canoeing and exploring the Matigulu Lagoon, with a picnic lunch on the beach, and one day exploring the forest with its breathtaking sea views. We focus our minds with guided meditation and walking in silence, and open ourselves to the profound, transformative energies of the crashing ocean waves and the forest. Both spaces bring a sense of abundance and energy that can reinvigorate us and help us face the challenges ahead.
