Wildlife & Yoga Retreats

Manda Bay  | 31st Oct - 4th Nov 2024

Imagine a week to switch off from the rest of the world on a remote island within the Lamu Archipelago. It's time for you to connect with nature with four nights in paradise complemented by the benefits of yoga. Beautiful, tranquil Manda Bay is roughly a 20-minute boat ride from the ancient Arab town of Lamu, which is now a World Heritage Site and is one of the oldest continually inhabited towns in East Africa.

Escape to this wild island with us, either as an add-on to our Enasoit retreat or as a standalone wild island getaway.

What To Expect

Slow days along the Indian Ocean

Each day will be greeted with a refreshing warm-up leading into an energising Vinyasa flow, with every class designed for all levels to enjoy. Following your morning practice, we will gather for a wholesome breakfast in the enchanting Enasoit Mess area, where you can savour your meal while gazing upon the mesmerising waterhole and all it has to offer.

Manda Bay Hotel

Manda Bay’s rooms are located in palm-thatched cottages, and the remainder of the hotel is open, blending seamlessly into its rugged coastal surroundings. When booking our Wild Island retreat, you have two room options and two retreat options. Choose between sharing with a retreat guest (and/or friend) or booking a private double room at Manda Bay Hotel. Or if you would like to join us for four nights just at Manda Bay Hotel, for yoga and a wild beach escape where you can dip in and out of all other activities we offer.

Yoga Experience

Our Manda Island Yoga sessions are truly something special. Manda Island has ancient baobab trees all over the island during the afternoon yoga sessions on our retreats will be hosted at a new location our in the islands wilderness .

Daily Yoga

During our retreat mornings, after enjoying tea or coffee while witnessing the sunrise, we will come together for a vinyasa session designed to awaken both your mind and body.
Late afternoons are dedicated to serene classes such as Yin Yoga, meditation, or a sound bath. These sessions take place in different locations on the island each afternoon. Either surrounded by ancient trees or atop a hill with a 360-degree view of pure coastal wilderness. Each class is accompanied by a melodic symphony of tropical birds, creating an enchanting soundtrack for our evening sessions.

Wild Island Itinerary

Manda Bay is uniquely wild and wonderful. You can embrace this remote location in the wilderness, where you can switch off from the rest of the world and enjoy the beauty of being. With our Manda retreats, there are moments of solitude and opportunity to pick and choose what you wish to join in as many feel relaxed by the coast and wish to opt for slower days. Every day, a diverse range of activities awaits you, allowing you the flexibility to select and participate in those that pique your interest. Options include wakeboarding and paddle boarding, an experience tailored to your preferences.
