ARRIVE CAPE TOWN – TABLE MOUNTAIN – THE JOURNEY BEGINS!!
We arrive in the Mother City, Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, a Peninsula enshrined by the two primal oceans, the Atlantic and Indian. We journey up to the top of Table Mountain, one of the new Natural Wonders of the World! To the top via the cable car, here we visit the Table Mountain Goddess, we explore the energies and have a meditation, to experiencing the energies of the Crown Chakra of the Cape Peninsula. We visit the sacred Eye of The Table Mountain Goddess, the Third Eye, what can we see…Full Moon & Sunset on top of Table Mountain – Dinner in famous Camps Bay overlooking the beach and ocean – Beautiful!
After breakfast we will fly 1hour East to the Land of the Rising Sun – Port Elizabeth, and the famous Addo Elephant Big 5 Game Reserve. Arrive at Addo. A trip to Africa is not complete without the opportunity to experience the animals up close in the pristine African Bushveld. We check into cottages at Addo Elephant Park. The park boasts the Big Five (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard.). We will check in and get ready for an amazing late afternoon/evening game drive. A lookout platform and an underground hide provide views over a waterhole which is floodlit at night. There is an optional early morning game drive opportunity.(own cost)
A swimming pool is available for overnight visitors, situated near the chalets. What do these Great Wisdom Keepers of Africa, the Elephants have to say to us? What memories will they share?…..In the wise words of Baba Credo Mutwa, an African Seer; “The Earth actually talks to us and sends us hidden messages, only we are to stupid, to crude, to hear!”
An early morning optional Game drive, (at additional cost).back for breakfast and then pack and begin our journey Westward following the Equinox Sunset back towards Cape Town along the famous Garden Route – On route we visit the giant yellow wood tree over nine hundred years old, found in the Great Tsitsikamma Forest where the elusive forest elephants still roam free. Meditation at the The Big Tree over 900 year old ancient grandmother Yellow Wood Tree. What will her ancient roots share with us ? Journey on to Keurbooms Strand, we drive through the Tsitsikama Forest – home of the wild forest elephants, to our beautiful lodgings overlooking the unspoilt beach of Keurbooms Strand, Plettenberg Bay. Check into our luxury chalets overlooking the Ocean… Built high on the sand dunes these exclusive chalets provide sweeping views of the Keurbooms Beach and indigenous vegetation.
Afternoon Robberg Peninsula a magical and mystical place….chosen by the Ancients to do special burial rituals with painted grave stones….From here the beautiful Bay of Plettenberg stretches in a huge arc to the east…and ends where the Great Range of Mountains, the Hottentots Holland, we have been following for 700km finally explodes out into the beautiful waters at Cathedral Rock enriched with great abundance of life… the feeding grounds of our watery and playful friends, the dolphins & whales in their breading sanctuary. We spend the day exploring this magical place we swim in the bay, connect with the dolphins and whales and walk the beautiful beach…meet the Rock Guardian of Robberg! What will we experience, what feelings will be expressed?!
Sunset Visit to an ancient burial cave on the Robberg Peninsula: the Nelson Bay Cave – we will see remnants of the early Stone Age tools and linger to practice sounding and meditation in the cave. Dinner at the Decks overlooking Look Out Beach at Plettenberg Bay.
Early Morning – All this time the Energies of the Equinox have been stirring in and around us. We move to the beach to greet the sun! We bathe and cleanse ourselves in the golden rays of sun light …we give thanks.
Beach walk to the sacred burial ground of Cathedral Rock, we will spend the rest of the day enshrined in the energies of this powerful portal…We eat food straight out the sea (mussels, oysters, seaweed, etc.) to further ingest the life force of this sacred place, here at the Cathedral Rock. Powerful energies flowing from west to east along the Garden Route explode into the ocean from this ancient portal: it is a great female womb entrance to the Primal Ocean. Noon time meditation at Cathedral Rock, including alignment and ritual rebirthing experience. Visit to the ancient caves with some of the deepest shell middens in the world.
Home cooked fireside dinner and sharing (fresh local produce, barbecued fish/meats and plenty of vegetables & salads.)
We travel further East Stopping to pay our respects to the Early strandloper cave at the well known Knysna Lagoon. Westward we go on to the Ebb and Flow Nature reserve in Wilderness on the famous garden route, the source of life and nurturance to many over hundreds and thousands of years. We check into our wooden chalets overlooking the lagoon, we visit the Ancient Mother Cave for a circle dance and meditation, reflecting on ebb and flow of the tides, the balance of nature and all life…we remember this song, the inner and outer landscapes that surround and enshrine us.
Famous Garden Route Big 5 Game Reserve and Lodge
Another opportunity to visit the great animals of Africa, who will come and great us the Lion or great Kudu perhaps? An evening and morning Game drive awaits us. Visit to the Cape St. Blaize Cave, a cavern that was inhabited by humans in prehistoric times. This entire area is said to be one of the oldest sites of human survival during the last Ice Age. Stone sentinels protect the cave entrance. What have these ancient beings seen, what knowledge and wisdom do they have to share with us?

We continue Westward on to Sacred Wisdom keepers of the Deep To Hermanus and Walker bay the breeding place of the Whales..Early afternoon swim in tidal pools and whale breath meditation. Overlooking the ocean where the powerful song of the Earth Magnetic Energies explode into the Indian Ocean, this is the song that draws the Great Whales, the wisdom keepers of the deep, back to their sacred breeding waters from the South Antarctic Ocean. Will we hear this sacred tune? What deep emotions does it stir within?! Sunset drive along the scenic ocean road as we enter Cape Town once again the Land of the setting Sun. Check into our 100 year hotel by the beach lodgings overlooking the Indian Ocean, evening communion with the whales.
Now that we have a better understanding of the Energy flow of Cape Peninsula, we start to focus our attention on the Solar Plexus, Pyramid and All Seeing Eye Rock, and the lower Heart Chakra, Ascension Cave. Both are powerful vortices that will impact your energetic alignment.
These two Sacred Nadis watch over the Sun Valley the deepest vault line across the peninsula. We work energetically to better understand the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine Energies that protect these two special places of power and nurturance. We will hold a ceremony with a San Spiritual leader Ishaqua, who will teach us some ancient San Bushman chants. Dean will make a shamanic tea from the surrounding healing herbs to help imbibe the Earth Heaven Song Enshrined and better connect with the energies of each place. These are two of the most powerful transformative energy centers on the Cape Peninsula, what songs will be summoned from this Sacred Place?!? How can we better understand and honor the Divine Masculine & Feminine within us.
We Awake and after a scrumptious breakfast we travel further down to the south western tip of the peninsula. Here we place our feet in the ocean at this vortex of sacred waters to experience the powerful energies found here…What do we feel? We are at the south western tip of Africa, the Divine Tuning Fork….will we get in tune? An anchoring and seeding ritual at this powerful primal base chakra vortex.
PICNIC LUNCH at this beautiful and powerful Earth Energy Point breathtaking.
After our sharing, we venture forth for an afternoon stroll into the nearby African Township with Nuntonsi our local guide…we experience the feelings and emotions of life in the township. We meet with everyday people, local musicians, traditional healers….what can we do? Sing with them, dance with them…? Dinner
September 18th – 19th
We head for the hills, alive with the spirit and song of the shaman bushman paintings. Heading out of Cape Town up the West Coast of South Africa, on route to the Sacred Bushman’s Valley, it is here the Ancient one’s experienced the Sacred Path of the Elephants, the Great Wisdom Keepers. We stop at the San Bushman cultural center !Khwa Ttu meet the San People listen to the ancient language and stories. We enter the sacred Bushmans Valley late afternoon. Here we will spend two nights and fully emerce ourselves surrounded by the nature of Bushman magic,overnight in converted cottages of the early Farm workers. Before Sunset we will walk the trail to experience the land and the shamanic rock paintings left by these Ancient people.
They knew much of the Nature of Heaven and Earth and had an open communication with the Stars…Here I will teach a form of meditation to help access the Star communication portal that is here. Photo, on left is a Blue Being, appearing to look over a blue sphere? Keeper of the Blue planet?
Here we will visit the two GOLDEN ELEPHANTS that have been ceremoniously positioned to capture the last golden rays of Sunset…we will align ourselves go into meditation to communicate with these great wisdom keepers and their memories..what sounds and songs will they encourage us to sing? Fireside Dinner and Animal Circle Dance, story telling. Early morning meditation and walk the trail.This sacred valley is the ancient passageway and migratory path of the great elephants. This will be an experience you will never forget!
Paarl Mountain – Sacred Hippo Fertility Cave – We travel back toward Cape Town to the historic wine estates between Paarl Mountain, Franschoek and Stellenbosch, the famous wine lands. We experience a vortex created by the convergence of two great mountain ranges. We will visit the Sacred Hippo Womb Cave on the great Paarl (Pearl) Rock to pay our respects to the ancients and then venture into the wine lands for a lunch and wine tasting (the Spirit of the Grape!)
Here, on Lion’s Head, lies a hidden Sacred Guardian… a 10ft granite head facing south, with an eye that is perfectly aligned due west, ready to capture the westbound sun.
It is this ancient Watchman that can help you align with the cosmic events and awaken your 3rd Eye. We explore this incredible granite crystaline SKULL rock and the amazing earth energy songline convergence that occurs here. Near to the Granite Skull Observatory is the Lion’s Head Watchman’s Cave. I believe this to be a sacred cave used by the early shamans and healers. If time allows we will enter the Mouth of the Lion a cave off the beaten track, to listen to what this sacred Lion Guardian has to tell us!
This is it! The sacred day has Dawned – We gather with others at the Sacred Pyramidal Mountain of Little Lion’s Head to share in a ceremony and experience a spectacular alignment and sunrise on the day of Great Balance on the Spring Equinox ”Magic is Afoot.”
