The setting for this Africa Reiki retreat is the Puziko Safari and Wellness Lodge, located deep in the jungle of Tanzania. The guest lodges do not have electricity but are illuminated by lanterns lit by Masai helpers, who also light fireplace fires before darkness falls. There is a generator available in the main lodge so guests can re-charge their camera batteries and other electronic devices.

Meals are served in the main lodge where traditional African cooking aromas waft from the open air kitchen. An observation deck above the jungle floor gives memorable views of the local wildlife: lions, elephants, hyenas, leopards and dik diks. There are also birdbaths for bird watching.

The seven-day retreat will be offered twice in 2015: June 19 through 25 and September 12 through 18. Following each retreat is an optional deluxe 4-day safari out into the plains where the Big Five game animals may often be seen. Accommodations for the June 26 – 29 and September 19 – 22 optional safaris are in a mobile deluxe camp that includes private Hemingway-style tents and evening cocktails around the campfire.

The pricing per person for the 7-day retreat starts as low as $2,000 based on triple occupancy for the land-only program that starts and ends in Arusha, Tanzania, and that includes three meals per day, six nights accommodations, Reiki and Shamanic Healing lessons and a 45-minute spa treatment.
