Retreat of the week
Malabar Retreats, Zimbabwe
Running for 8 days twice a year, in March and November, this glorious retreat combines Lu Jong, a little-known ancient form of Tibetan Healing yoga, with meditation, periods of silence, inspirational encounters with wildlife, plenty of downtime and pampering in the lap of luxury. You spend the first four days at Malabar Zambezi, a private home in the heart of the African bush boasting majestic panoramic views across the Zambezi river, then move for the second four to the stunningly appointed Malabar Hall Harare, set in twelve acres of Msasa forest. Digitally detox and tune in to new levels of stillness and rigour, then enjoy slighter daily Lu Jong practice, periods of silence, meditation and profound balancing daily massage, all in an atmosphere of social warmth and bonhomie.
