Nambwa with its power to draw in elephants along their age-old migratory routes welcomes you to tap into the wisdom of your heart.

We invite you to immerse yourself into a sphere of healing energy at Nambwa Tented Lodge nestled high amongst majestic trees, honouring the elephants’ right of way below. An authentic walkway joins ten decadently spacious tented suites, which emanate a feeling of vastness and evoke a gentle balance of serenity.

Dusty and Tinolla will be your hosts, together with their experienced team and 4 carefully selected facilitators for an enchanting retreat that merges you with the grandeur of the natural environment.

You will practice Qi gong and yoga in pristine wilderness locations, be led into deep emotional freedom work, embark on a shamanic journey beside hippo pools and create memorable moments as you explore the area on foot, by boat or vehicle. You will be carried and embraced by your nurturing facilitators during optional private treatments of your choosing from an extensive treatment menu. The Sijwa Project will set your creativity free and the grand finale in true Nambwa style will be set on a private island in the bush under the Gibbous moon.

“Do not let the past disturb you, just leave everything in the sacred heart and begin again with joy!

Mother Theresa

Head of a scientist, hands of a botanist and the heart of an artist and healer – Lara-Lyn is a joyful and intuitive yogi, acrobat and Thai Massage therapist. Her love for understanding human psyche and growth started early with performance arts, dance, acting and character analysis through psychology.
At around the age of 20 she stumbled into yoga through martial arts and practiced for around 12 years before becoming a teacher for the next 5 years and counting. She owns and runs Windhoek’s largest yoga studio which has a community of 6+ teachers and offers daily yoga classes of all varieties.
Through her Partner Acrobatics training she fell in love with the sacred art of Thai Massage which she studied in Greece and Thailand with the Sunshine Network. During these trainings she found Qigong and has been marrying all of these healing modalities together ever since.

“My mother is the original healer in my life and inspired me to walk my own path of truth which has led me to a fulfilling life of service.”

“We have been to the moon, we have charted the depths of the ocean and the heart of the atom, but we have a fear of looking inward to ourselves because we sense that is where all the contradictions flow together.”
