7 Day Women's Rewilding retreat

Our retreats are about connecting to nature, to each other and to yourself.
We aim to create an experience filled with earth based arts, traditional skills, plant identification folk medicine, fire making and primal movement through various workshops and classes

On this 7 day adventure:
Release your true potential by challenging yourself in our yoga and primal movement classes, nature hiking and other nature immersion activities.

Gain mental clarity and feel supported and held as you connect with your deeper self and to nature in our self-development and rewilding workshops where we learn about ancestral skills, authentic relating and rewilding your mind.
By tapping into your “inner nature” to ignite curiosity, passion and a sense of adventure, we guide you to help yourself to reclaim your birthright

Nourish your body and increase your energy through the wholesome plant-based eating while learning about wild foraged foods and traditional folk medicine

Carly will be our host and resident plant guide, sharing her love and knowledge of edible and medicinal plants. Her approaches range from using well-established modern herbalism practices to personal skills she's learned and adapted to while living out on the farm for the past 6 years. She will also be guiding you through elemental yoga and primal movement classes, always looking to nature to guide and inspire.

Simone Beckerling, our special wonder-women healer will be facilitating the Sweat Lodge ceremonies. A Sweat lodge is a physical and mental cleansing practice originating from most native traditions and the sweat lodge ceremony is practiced in some form by every culture in the world in order to facilitate healing, purification and relaxation.
Simone ''Songweaver'' Beckerling has been walking the Red Path for over a decade. Simone has completed her 4,7, 9 and 13 day Red Path vision quests and given the blessing to ''pour'' for the SweatLodge by her elders. Simone is an experienced Sweat Lodge facilitator who understands the subtlety of holding space, bringing people back to Mother Earth and back to their hearts.

We welcome all women to join us on this adventure, be inspired by, and make lifelong connections with awesome, like-minded women.

Carly Esterhuizen

Retreat co-ordinator and facilitator

Carly has always felt a deep connection with the earth and all the creatures living therein. After completing her studies as an interior designer, her heart guided her to another -somewhat less travelled- road entirely, as she spent months living in the South African bush and gaining her field guide certification.

Carly’s other great loves are cooking and animal rehabilitation, which inspired her to train as a patisserie chef where she learn't to prepare food in a professional environment. After which she hosted slow food and raw food retreats at her guest farm.
She also completed her studies in and worked as a canine hydrotherapist and gained a diploma in canine health and nutrition which deepened her love for general health and well being.

It was her abiding devotion to the creatures we share this earth with which led her to return to her roots, as she taught herself to craft mouth-wateringly delicious plant-based meals at her farm guest-house.

Combining her various and varied skills, Carly brings a stylishly earthy insight into nature’s bounty: sharing her knowledge about herbal remedies, foraged food, farm to table cooking, natural healing and more.
