Life is fast paced and at times unforgiving. The constant demand of work and family life often leaves one depleted. The Kruger Lowveld region is a destination that can renew and revive a depleted soul. Through the healing power of being outdoors and nature, one can find peace and often answers to life’s many mysteries.
There are many mystical and calming places around the region where one can reconnect and reflect. One such spot is the labyrinth at Old Joe’s Kaia Country Haven. Used for centuries, labyrinths provide a space for prayer, meditation or introspection. They are designed to intertwine in a mathematical way, always ending in the centre and leading out by the same way. Walking a Labyrinth is often compared to a reflective journey of one’s spirit.
