Download Itinerary

WEDNESDAY 3rd September

You will be met at Hoedspruit airport from the lunchtime flight. (Those travelling by road will be given directions to a convenient meeting place.) On arrival at Camp Unicorn you will be shown to your room to relax and settle in. We regroup at 3pm for introductions and intention setting. Linda Tucker and lion ecologist, Jason Turner will speak about the project and their work.

After Jason has run through the protocol, the group sets out on the first visit to the star lions.
We accompany a member of the scientific team during the dusk monitoring, tracking one of the two prides who walk in freedom on their endemic homeland.
This is a time of first introduction to the sacred beings who lead the project. Back at camp, we enjoy a sumptuous meal around the fire. After dinner the National Geographic documentary about the project will be screened. A relatively early night for all ends the first day at “Tsau!”

Listen out for the beautiful sounds of the African night, including the roars of the royal pride, as you drift off into dreamtime. Take note of your dreams during your stay at Tsau! as we often get important messages through our dreams, and will include a dream session during your time here.

THURSDAY 4th September

The day starts with a leisurely breakfast at 9am. Wynter then shares her knowledge on Animal Communication. Through various meditations and visualisation exercises you will be shown how to still your mind and connect with all animals in order to understand them on a deeper, more intuitive level.
Wynter explains the practicalities of interspecies communication, combining ancient knowledge with modern day practices.

With the help of the resident lion camp dogs, Cibi and Max and Tula House cat, Gorgeous (if willing),  you will be guided in a question and answer session to show you that we can all communicate with the animals. Here you are able to explore your ability to pick up physical and emotional messages from different species.

After a delicious lunch the group returns to the workshop space, where you will learn how we can all connect with animals over any distance. Wynter shows you how you are able to intuitively track and sense physical location through tuning in to the animal’s energy body.
You will be shown how to apply this knowledge into your everyday life with both wild and domestic animals. We also discuss the difficulties and “blockages” one may experience in this work and how to overcome them.

The presence of the beings on this land gives extra energy and guidance to this teaching. At 4pm the group sets out for another dusk visit to the Royal Prides. This time you are able to put your knowledge to the test, tracking and connecting with them on a different level, with more understanding and integration into their world.

Back at Camp Unicorn we enjoy our evening meal and end off with storytelling by the fire.

FRIDAY 5th September

An early start finds you on the first dawn visit to the Royal family. The group observes what has happened with the pride during the night and engages in personal observations and communications, with the lions’ permission.

On return we enjoy a light breakfast and around 9am (weather permitting) the group sets out on a gentle two hour walk along the Klaserie river banks, guided by one of the indigenous trackers who are part of the White Lion team. This is a time to observe and connect with the different nature beings who form part of this powerful land.  Part of the walk will be done in silence in order for you to really feel at one with the earth and her children.

The walk takes the group to the site of the Rock Crystal Star Lion Sculpture by well known Artist Andries Botha, set in exact alignment with the Sphynx along the Nile meridian. Wynter leads the group in meditation, then the group gathers here for Linda to take you through the ancient Egyptian links and the vital importance of this area of land and the beings who have come to be here. We will then partake in a delicious picnic lunch under the wild fig trees. After lunch, you have time to rest, meditate and journal your experiences so far.  

We conclude with the late afternoon monitoring check to the star prides. The group spends quiet time with the lions in due reverence and gratitude for the knowledge they have shared with us. We then head back to camp for a hearty evening meal.

SATURDAY 6th September

StarLion Journey September G
This morning after breakfast, we gather to learn more about animal communication.
After a light lunch, we head off to visit Mbube, part of the White Lion Conservancy and home to the Akeru Pride and the volunteer camp.
We spend the time there in communication with the lions and nature.

Today we learn about the culture surrounding the Sacred White Lions, and how the lions walking in freedom have also freed and invigorated the community.

We visit the cultural village where Maria Khoza’s family teach the children of the community and visitors about their ancient traditions. We enjoy an African evening meal cooked over the open fire and finish off the evening with the vibrant dancing of the young Shangaans. There will be an opportunity to have a reading from Sarah, who is Maria’s sister and the Sangoma (African Shaman) of the village.

SUNDAY 7th September

After an early breakfast the group comes together for sharing of experiences and further thoughts on integrating the knowledge gained during your intensive journey into Animal Communication and the soul of Africa.
We set our intentions for the future and are offered guidance in WHITE LION WARRIORSHIP.
We end off with a grounding and protection ceremony to prepare your way home.
You will be transported to Hoedspruit Airport where we say our goodbyes, knowing that this is not the end of your travels, but the beginning of a spiritual journey of the soul.

SAA is the only commercial airline which flies into Hoedspruit . There is now a direct flight from Cape Town. Please book the later flight for your return journey. If driving, Tsau! is about a 6 hour drive from Johannesburg and 2 hours from Nelspruit. You will be given a map and directions to the meeting point on booking. WHAT TO BRING:

  • Comfortable walking shoes/boots.
  • Clothing: We are moving towards the end of South Africa’s winter. During this time of year it can be very hot during the day and slightly cooler at night. There may be thunder showers, so wet weather gear is important.
  • Sunblock, hat and sunglasses.
  • Mosquito repellent: Timbavati is a Malaria area. If you feel you do need to take prophylactics we suggest consulting a homeopath or herbalist, as the allopathic anti-malaria tablets can make you feel ill. Make sure you have insect repellent cream or spray for the evening and while sleeping. We would prefer you to use natural based products, to lessen the impact of chemicals in the environment.
  • Although this is a non-photographic project, you may bring your camera. Photos of the White Lions themselves are not to be taken without written permission from the WLT, but you are welcome to take photos of the base camp and the environment. Beautiful photographs by professional photographers are available for purchase with proceeds going to the Trust.

The rondavels are allocated on a first come first serve basis.

A surcharge of R3000 is charged for a single supplement.

MONITORING VISITS: Group visits to the lions with the monitoring team, are limited to a maximum number of people.

If necessary, the workshop group will be split for the visits to ensure each person spends quality time with the lions, without impacting them.

Please note the itinerary is not set in stone, and may change depending on the weather, the people and most important of all, THE LIONS!

We are at all times working with a scientific project and all visits and work with the lions is subject to strict scientific protocol. Due respect will be paid to the needs of the project and the lions themselves.

In true African tradition, it is appropriate to bring a gift in honour of the lions.
This can be either a physical gift, for example a crystal, or an energetic gift for example a prayer or poem.

We ask you to meditate on this and bring what you feel is right.
