Our mission at Soulgypsies is to bring benefit to local providers in the countries we visit. That means, as best we can, we keep away from multi-national hotels. Our accommodations on this trip are varied, from luxury tents on safari (this is not your regular camping folks!), to family run B&B and lodges in Cape Town, Mozambique and at the Cradle of Mankind outside Johannesburg.

Travel with kindred spirits to exotic spiritually charged locations.

Renew and transform.

And have a great time while we’re doing it.

This is an adventure of a deeper sort.

We meet ourselves in new ways through adventure and encounters with people, customs and beliefs which we would not otherwise experience.

We travel in a sustainable and ecologically aware manner, supporting conservation, using grass roots providers, immersing deeply in countries, connecting cultures through what unifies while celebrating our differences.

With freshness and vigor, our journey is enhanced with yoga, photography, conversation, stories, friendship and laughter. Many guests meet their new best friend on our adventure.

Soulgypsies – noun, plural:~those addicted to the exotic in life!
