Why choose a couples wellness retreat at Londolozi? A couples wellness retreat is about one thing: connection. It feels so strange to STILL be talking about how disconnected we have all felt over the last two years. We’re all thinking that surely it must be time for a return to the old life. We are now into our third year of this new world. Surely it’s time. But I know that so many people are still yearning for connection – with a community of people, with themselves, with open spaces, and with a significant other.
Traveling as a couple is a good choice right now
With February being the month that we celebrate love and romance – and in turn the people in our lives who bring love and meaning to it- I too started thinking about the perfect way to reconnect with my significant other. And my first thought was to travel, just the two of us, and experience something new together. If you are reading this and also seeking connection, then perhaps I can share five reasons why a couples wellness retreat is one of the better life choices to make as we head into 2022…
A couples wellness retreat is the simplest travel choice
Travelling internationally can still be a bit tricky with all the tests, protocols, and extra things to think about. Limiting the number of your group to just two makes everything that much simpler as there really are only two of you to worry about. This is not to say, however, that a multigenerational family holiday is off the cards – we love to welcome the whole family at Londolozi – but if you are looking for ease of planning and execution, getting away just the two of you is definitely the easiest choice.
Experiencing something new for the first time brings us closer together
There’s no doubt in my mind that the experience of planning, prepping for, and embarking on a vacation with someone special is one of the most exciting things to do. The thrill of exploring a new place and creating new memories is something that drives people to travel the world over. But there is something about adventuring into the unknown, and coming on safari that heightens the experience.
A Londolozi safari is an exciting vacation
It’s been a long time cooped up indoors, or ‘staying local’ for many people. But the wide-open spaces, fresh bushveldt air, and sunlight can be potent medicine for the pandemic blues. And while the idea of lying quietly on a sandy beach with the ocean gently lapping the shore is extremely appealing, there is something exciting about being on the back of a landrover as you traverse a wild landscape looking for tracks of a leopard or following the deep call of a lion as the sun begins to rise. No two days of experiencing a classic Londolozi safari are ever the same and the excitement of sharing that is extremely special.
A Couple’s wellness Retreat at Londolozi means very few distractions
We pride ourselves on creating a different kind of connection here. Rather than being connected to the rest of the world via your devices, you become deeply connected to each other. It’s a clutter-free type of connection that can only bring you closer together. There is something about putting down our devices, looking someone in the eye, and just simply having a quiet conversation for a few uninterrupted moments that allow us to connect deeply with someone. A couples wellness retreat at Londolozi is the best place for it.
Planning a couple’s wellness retreat is easy… if you choose Londolozi
It’s easy because we do everything for you. Every experience that we give, no matter if you are here just the two of you or with a group of people, is tailor-made. We have always been proud of being a small, stand-alone family business and the beauty of this means that we get to call the shots and customize a stay to our heart’s content. To that end, no two couples’ wellness retreats are the same. There is always room for something special. Our guests also have the choice of customising their own stay based on the wide variety of activities that are available at each camp between their morning and evening game drives. The choice between one of our signature treatments at the Healing House, to an hour in our photographic studio, to a wander around the Londolozi village, its all there for you.
Whether you are searching for the ultimate honeymoon destination, the perfect spot for your ‘babymoon’, or simply something exciting to add to your travel calendar this year, I really couldn’t think of a better option than arriving in Africa and letting the Londolozi Love wash over you as you find a new sense of connection with yourself, others and the wilderness of Londolozi.
