Women's Safari Retreat in Tanzania
23-30 November 2024

A journey of networking, business inspiration, brainwork, and adventure


ultimate travel experience


unforgettable days


like minded women

Dear adventurous sisters,

Fifteen years ago, I followed my heart to Tanzania for love. Since then, I've built my business here with my husband, creating Makasa Safaris, organizing safari holidays, while also raising our three children in this beautiful land. Our multicultural family keeps me alive, constantly inspired by the diversity and richness of Tanzanian culture.

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to attend a business course led by Tony Robbins. Being surrounded by like-minded individuals was invigorating. Have you ever experienced the energy buzzing with shared ambition and creativity? This experience sparked an idea that I'm thrilled to share with you.

I am introducing the Women's Safari Retreat, an extraordinary fusion of business empowerment, networking and thrilling adventure, all set against the breathtaking backdrop of Tanzania's landscapes. Let's embark on this adventure together!

Your time is valuable. In the midst of your hectic life, finding silence can be powerful yet elusive. On safari, I've found that silence gives me all the ideas and inspiration I need; it nourishes my soul. Tanzania and this retreat offer you that silence to think, to leap, and to rejuvenate.

- Selma

Ice bath and breathwork workshop

Ice bath workshop with Linde

Following this, there is an explanation of the science behind how training with cold, breathing, and focus can improve the immune system. The workshop includes a deeply transformative breathing session, often experienced as the highlight. Mindset training is also a key component. Participants receive one-on-one coaching in the ice bath. Finally, the workshop concludes with a breathing exercise to anchor all the transformations experienced during the workshop.

Having overcome significant personal setbacks, she discovered the transformative power of cold training and deep breathing.
