Laurelea C.

A great trip! Wonderfully planned and executed.  Loved this experience, especially my fellow travellers, the variety of amazing activities and by far the safari experience at Londolozi... WOW!

Shayne T.

We were just in total awe the entire trip and it was not until I awoke this morning was I hit with an overwhelming rush of emotion that brought me to my knees. There are seriously no words and if I could find any they would diminish the imprint this journey left on my...

Playful + Spiritual = Perfection

Laurel F.

A fusion of the senses through food, culture, environment and deluxe accommodation. The food was delicious, loved the interactive cooking class with the visit to the local fish market and of course all the local entertainment (Balinese dancers).

Nancy C.

I think the concept of Luxury, Adventure & Spirituality is brilliant.  We love how we can experience the spirituality, heart and energy of the area in luxury & comfort…truly a unique idea and really fun.

Debbie E.

It has been a remarkable, memorable & moving experience! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

The Divine Destination Collection has done it again... Great holiday, lots of insight into the Mayan culture... Great Kitchen Party, just loved it and the amazing food & drinks... again all the great people I met.

Africa: A Journey to the Heart and Soul - Safari

Africa…A Journey to the Heart and Soul

Experience the natural splendour of Cape Town, incomparable exclusive Big Five safari game drives in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve next to Kruger National Park, a quick stop in Johannesburg and heart stopping encounters with gorillas in Uganda, the Pearl of Africa.

Sacred South of France, Lavender Fields

Sacred South of France…

Just the name evokes a sense of serenity with its picturesque countryside dotted with vineyards and chateaux… Come with us as we trace the fabled footsteps of Mary Magdalene, who is said to have arrived in France after the crucifixion and lived and worked here as teacher and healer.

Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat

Revive Retreats…Camp Divine

This is glamping at its finest…gaze up at the starry skies, feel one with nature and relax in luxury. Queen-sized beds instead of sleeping bags, mood lighting instead of flashlights, and a wine glass instead of a canteen – this is camping as you’ve never experienced it.

Why spirituality is central to our trips

It is not religion. It is something that is different for everyone. It can be our experience with nature, our own soul, our own personal growth, or a peek into the mysterious. It may be a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves or a search for meaning in life. In any case, a spiritual experience is usually uplifting, sacred or transformational or simply a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness.
