Find balance and well-being - in community with nature

nature's stewards


Taking care of ourselves and our natural surroundings is all about creating a balance. At all times, we aim to maintain, preserve and improve the wildness we enjoy so much. We benefit in many ways from our environment and local community and so we do our best to give back through support and cultivation.

Rejuvenate your senses

Escapes within nature are all about finding balance and rejuvenation. We oftentimes escape the concrete jungle to spaces within the wild and green to connect or reconnect. It is about becoming aware of the stillness that brings us a sense of peace and calm. You can find that within the evergreen forest of the Bijambare. Notice how all your senses tune in on the soothing energy of this space. Your muscles relax, your mind becomes still, and all you can think about is the moment you are currently in.
The magic of our natural surroundings can be felt immediately. The crisp and fresh smell of pine and resin, the soothing sounds of the wind blowing through the leaves, the soothing songs from a myriad species of birds breaking through the silence, the divine color of green bringing you comfort and harmony, the feel of bark, leaves and flowers, and the sweet taste of wild berries.
Your senses come to come life in the most extraordinary ways.
