The best way to unwind on safari, following a flurry of early mornings, exhilarating game drives and long nature walks is a relaxing and therapeutic massage, and most camps and lodges now offer a range of massages within the comfort of your own tent or suite.
Many properties now have on-site trained and experienced masseurs who are happy to soothe away tired, knotted safari muscles, either in-room, or in a secluded shady corner of the camp, allowing guests to enjoy a relaxing treatment while listening to the sounds of the bush.
Massages can help flush out toxins by working the fascia around muscles to release stiffness, tightness or tensions caused by long-haul travel on arrival or bumpy game drives and long walks during your safari experience. Most lodges and camps tend to use natural and / or organic plant-based oils, balms and other products made from healing ingredients from the bush. Some therapists will offer treatments inspired by ancient African healing traditions.
