Forest Bathing in Zululand

Safari Experiences

Imagine leaving the concrete jungle behind and stepping into a world where the only sound is the wind rustling through leaves and the gentle symphony of birdsong. This isn’t just a dream, it’s the reality waiting for you at Lazuli Bush Lodge, nestled within the embrace of Kuleni Game Park in KwaZulu-Natal.

Lazuli isn’t just a lodge, it is a place of mindful travel, where reconnecting with nature isn’t just a luxury, it’s a necessity. Here, you’ll rediscover the ancient Japanese art of ‘shinrin-yoku’, better known as forest bathing. But what exactly is this magical practice?

Think of it as a deep dive into the serenity of the forest. It’s about shedding the layers of stress and busyness, slowing down and becoming one with the beauty that surrounds you. It’s about feeling the sun on your skin, listening to the whisper of the breeze through the trees and breathing in the clean, crisp air that fills your lungs with life.

Lazuli Bush Lodge bath

This is how you practice forest bathing at Lazuli …

You take a deep breath, the scent of damp earth and the surrounding forest filling your senses. You begin to walk, not with a destination in mind, but guided by the rustling leaves and the dappled sunlight.

As you move deeper into the forest, the worries of the outside world melt away, replaced by the gentle rhythm of nature. You might catch a glimpse of a shy antelope in a clearing or hear the chit-chatter of birds.

Lazuli’s tranquil setting within Kuleni Game Park becomes your sanctuary. The lodge itself is a haven of peace, its architecture blending seamlessly with the surrounding forest. Here, you can unwind by the pool or curl up with a book, completely and utterly relaxed.

As you practice ‘shinrin-yoku’ at Lazuli, you’ll feel a shift within yourself. The tension in your shoulders will ease, your mind will quiet and a sense of peace will settle over you. You’ll rediscover the simple joy of being present in the moment, of connecting with the natural world in a way you never thought possible.

Lazuli isn’t just a place to stay, it’s an invitation to a transformative experience. It’s a chance to reconnect with yourself, with nature and with the whispers of your soul.

So, pack your willingness to be present, the forest awaits and at Lazuli, it’s ready to embrace you in the practice of forest bathing. Let the forest whisper its secrets to you and let your soul breathe deep in the tranquillity of the natural world.
