So come as you are ...
I was raised in beautiful NZ, the home of emerald green grass and fat wooly sheep!
I was a shy little girl but with a curiosity for the world always bubbling away underneath ...
I am fascinated by people and places.
Over the years I have discovered that the "experience" of life lights me up.
And creating beautiful uplifting spaces for women to share life - well thats my passion!
I never imagined I would walk through the Wilderness in Africa,
or do a photo shoot in Venice.
Or listen to dreamtime stories under a night sky in the desert sands
nor swim in the magical waters of the Bellingen Promised Land
But I'm grateful these are some of the pages of my story.
Every adventure, big or small, starts with the first step.
Saying yes is powerful.
If you'd like to Love Your Journey a little more
I want you to know, you're invited ...
Come join us to
in beautiful natural environments
nourished, uplifted and inspired
other beautiful hearts
more of your own creativity
And into the forest I go to lose my mind
and find my soul.
Words cannot describe how the wilderness will speak to you.
She'll write a personal message across your heart in a language only YOU understand.
This place will change you forever.
Our visit starts on the Wild Coast where we "Homestay" with local families.
Understanding the land through her people will prepare us to walk respectfully into the sanctuary of the wilderness. Imfolozi is home to the Big 5, and promises to deliver the ultimate wilderness adventure.
A "Just Do It" experience.

Meeting our Personal Guide in East London SA, we depart for our Homestay safari on the Wild Coast. For the next 3 days we will hike alongside forests, rivers and waterfalls being hosted by local families each night. An intimate opportunity to "feel" into the people of this land. We share food and listen to fascinating stories. Our Guide is a proud Xhosa man, passionate about the environment and his community. I can vouch for Vuyani's knowledge, expertise and integrity as I have walked an African safari with him. His offer to Guide us along this piece of the East Cape will create a uniquely personal and priceless experience. Such an honour.

Zhondi has an intimiate love of this land and to experience his heart for this place just makes the journey that much more powerful. It is such an honour to walk with him.
