Savanna Yoga  (In person)

Stretch your bodies and relax your minds on the African Savanna. Take in the sights and sounds of nature as you observe the beauty of the elephantsAn educator will be available before and after the program to talk about the animals of the African Savanna and connect you further to our conservation work. Yoga will take place outside, and we will try to vary locations on the African Savanna to create unique opportunities for the experience. In inclement weather, the program will take place in an indoor location that promotes social distancing. While there is a good chance that you will see elephants, there may be times when they are in their behind-the-scenes areas, and we cannot guarantee that they will always be visible.
