Why we love South Africa

Why we love South Africa

It’s our fifth time hosting a retreat in South Africa, and honestly, we just can’t get enough. There’s something about the Motherland that keeps calling us back, and we can’t wait for you to experience it.

South Africa is unlike any other place we visit. The diversity of landscapes is just incredible—one minute you’re driving along the stunning coastlines, and the next, you’re exploring vibrant cities or sipping wine in the lush vineyards. And let’s not forget the wildlife! The safaris here are out of this world.

But what really makes South Africa special are the people. Everyone we’ve met has been so warm and welcoming, and the cuisine is absolutely to die for. Plus, our retreats are held in the most luxurious accommodations, so you’ll be pampered the entire time.

We can’t wait to share this adventure together and soak in all the beauty and magic that South Africa has to offer. It’s going to be unforgettable!

“The Whole Experience is just that…a WHOLE EXPERIENCE…an entire VIBE! I’m not sure how the ladies of The Whole Experience do it, but they attracted the most beautiful, energetic, positive ladies to this South Africa retreat. I have to say my fellow retreat guests were my favorite part of my week in the Motherland. Every activity and outing was purposeful and enjoyable. The visit to historical landmarks, the hikes, the winery, and the surprise dinner…ALL of it was an unforgettable experience. The meals were more than delicious! I was so happy that my vegan lifestyle was supported with each meal. I felt so spoiled with having a colorful array of foods presented at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The chef was top-notch. I will forever be grateful for the experience that Tameika and Whitney curated JUST FOR ME and I look forward to the next Whole Experience.”

NiKesha F

“I have written and deleted this review several times because words cannot describe The Whole Experience Retreats. The hosts, Whitney and Tameika, are beautiful souls. I can understand why they have an amazing friendship. Not only do they understand each other very well, but they understand you as well. They do their best to make you feel comfortable while being away from home. They are very attentive to your needs. I had a spiritual awakening while in the Motherland and I experienced it with some of most joyous, energizing, and loving people I have ever met. Honestly, words cannot describe how refreshed you will feel after attending one of the Whole Experience Retreats. I am a Tribe Member for LIFE! Thank you for an amazing experience that I will never forget ❤️”

Nesha J

“From the carefully curated itinerary of experiences and delectable nourishing dishes prepared by our private chef to the mindful moments and special space held for sisterly connection, this indeed was The Whole Experience. No matter how experienced you are with travel, whether this is your first trip or your 50th, Tameika and Whitney are a dynamic duo that will exceed expectations. These two women were with us every step of the way, available around the clock, with professionalism and flexibility to ensure everyone had the best experience. I left feeling refreshed on every level of my mind, body, and soul. Cape Town, South Africa, is a destination that will forever hold a place in my heart and memories. Thank you to The Whole Experience team and my new tribe!”

Cambria J.

“Whitney and Tameika put together an incredible, all-inspiring retreat in South Africa. Every step of the way was planned perfectly with so much attention to detail and care for the whole group. They made the experience feel like a sisterhood. The activities we did were centered on wellness, culture, and self-care. I loved every moment! It truly was the whole experience. I can’t wait to go on my next retreat with these ladies!”

Nicole L

I’ve always wanted to go to South Africa, but it wasn’t a trip I wanted to do on my own. I booked this trip as a solo traveler and left with a handful of new friends! We packed A LOT into this one week, and I really enjoyed not having to plan anything. The villa was comfortable and had spectacular views, the private chef was AMAZING, the staff was incredibly accommodating and welcoming, and Tameika and Whitney were there every steps of the way to support and encourage us! It was nice to have a trip that focused on health and wellness that still allowed us to take in the culture, sight-see, and even get some adventuring in! Cannot recommend The Whole Experience enough. This retreat was the perfect balance of mindfulness and fun, and it was a GREAT way to see one of the coolest cities in the world!

Jasmin M

“Thee most exciting travel experience I’ve ever had. Tamika and Whitney are masters at their craft and have honed the skills to help others vibrate on higher levels. I’m sure my adventures will continue with them in the near future, and perhaps with some of you. Traveling the world 🌎 while enhancing our souls.”

Jasmin M

“The Whole Experience retreat in Cape Town superseded all of my expectations. Tameika and Whitney curated an experience that included adventure, relaxation, movement, self-reflection, sisterhood, cultural education, and celebration. Both Tameika and Whitney were intentional about holding space for every woman that attended and created a space that was authentic, safe, and fun. They stayed true to their brand the entire week and made sure that we all had a “whole experience” in Cape Town, South Africa!”

our past Retreats

Thailand is one of our FAVORITE retreat destinations. Each year we invite 13 women to explore the wonders of Thailand – all while focusing on our health: Mind, body, and spirit. Thailand is one of our tribe favorites as this retreat includes:

  • A day playing with the elephants and the Elephant Sanctuary
  • A Muay Thai lesson
  • A morning at local markets followed by cooking class
  • An afternoon to explore Thailand’s temples and majestic sites
  • A day at the beach, including beach yoga, kayaking, jet skis and so much fun!

Thailand continues to amaze us with all it has to offer! We would be honored to share this experience with YOU next! 

The Island of the Gods is special for the Whole Experience, as it is where our retreats were originally created! Due to Bali’s spirituality, beautiful scenery and unique culture, this amazing island is also one of our favorite places in the world to host retreats, so it truly feels like our second home. What makes this retreat so special is: 

  • A traditional Balinese cooking class on the picturesque white sandy beaches of Nusa Dua 
  • Biking through the rice fields of Indonesia
  • Pampering our ladies with massages! 
  • Taking in the lush jungles and monkey forest of Ubud. 

This retreat truly is a week honoring our favorite word… Balance! Filled with our usual special blend of wellness workshops, fitness classes, meditation, and of course amazing food prepared by one of the most talented chefs we have had the pleasure of working with, who we affectionately call Chef Bae (see photos on our instagram stories to see why). We are overjoyed to have had this experience and will certainly look forward to returning to Bali for future retreats. 

Our Colombia retreat was filled with so much JOY! While focusing on our wellness journey, we also spent time getting intimately connected to the culture. What we loved most about this retreat was:

  • Exploring the islands
  • Taking salsa lessons and even seeing a LIVE salsa show
  • Learning about Colombia’s rich history and working with their indigenous tribes to learn about their locally made arts and crafts.

As with all retreats, ladies left feeling better than they arrived. We are so thankful for our Colombia tribe for reminding us that you can find complete JOY in this process. You can focus on your wellness journey while having fun at the same time!

We indulge in rest, relaxation, and restoration in one of the most stunning natural beauty countries – Costa Rica! For 7 days we stayed in a private jungle villa in the Nicoya Peninsula with our extraordinary blend of holistic wellness, rest, sisterhood, fun experiences, and delectable healthy vegetarian food.

We wanted to make the most of our time there. We went island hopping to Tortuga Island, snorkeled with our marine friends, and ziplined through the jungle!

We conducted sessions in various healing practices. We had fire and cocoa ceremonies, along with sound healing sessions. We had regular fitness and yoga classes.  It was a week of deep transformational shifts, shared with a diverse group of women, who with all their individual attributes bring something to the group that often surprises us!

Our hearts are never more fulfilled than when we travel to the Motherland! Africa is one of the most beautiful and culturally rich places on earth. We are so honored to take a tribe of women to Cape Town, South Africa each year. You will absolutely love our villa that is nestled at the foothills of the majestic Table Mountain. In addition being spoiled with in villa massages, amazing farm-to-table meals, holistic wellness workshops and of course meditation and fitness. We love getting our women out to explore Cape Town: 

  • We Visited the historic sight of Robben Island to see where Mandela and several other freedom fighters served time
  • We enjoyed a beautiful day in the world renowned wineries of Stellenbosch, South Africa
  • We explored incredible views at Table Mountain National Park, Chapmans Peak, Cape of Good Hope
  • We hung with the penguins at Boulders Beach
  • We visited the Townships and historical museums 

We love getting to explore this beautiful land with our tribe members. We can’t wait to have you join us at our next retreat in Cape Town!  

Who dreams of a summer in Tuscany? This is one of our happy places. The historic cobblestone streets, amazing food and vibrant culture make Italy a place like no other on earth. We filled our time with all kinds of glorious experiences in Tuscany. Our retreat included our standard array of workouts, spa time, focus on mindfulness/yoga, and of course AMAZING food. However, we also enjoyed unique italian experiences like:

  • Shopping in the bustling city of Florence 
  • Enjoying a historic walking tour and taking in the Italian opera
  • Truffle hunting with our very own truffle dog
  • Cooking classes where we learned to make our own pasta! 
  • And of course it would not be a trip to Italy without a little wine tasting! 

It is truly important to us to provide a well-rounded experience for our retreats. In addition to this, it is all experienced with the most AMAZING women. What a week! We hope to welcome you to our next adventure like this! 

Greece was a complete dream! Being in Greece, you are in constant awe of the beauty of this land. This retreat is nothing short of magical. Daily yoga / meditation, bootcamps, internal work, workshops – and then exploring magical GREECE!

  • We sailed the Greek islands on the Mediterranean sea
  • Explored small historical villages with yummy cafes and shopping
  • Enjoyed a cooking class at what Vanity Fair ranked the “Best Organic Restaurant” in the world. 

We also spent time spoiling the ladies! Spa treatments, girl nights, gifts, and giving them all the tools necessary to live a whole and healthy life. And not to mention the HOURS spent in happiness, laughter, and pure joy. We came as strangers, but left as family.

Definitely one of the best weeks of our lives! It was a wellness retreat that focuses on an adventure while having the opportunity to reset and restore mind, body, and spirit.

We stayed for 4 nights in a private resort and 3 nights glamping on safari in the beautiful Tsavo National Park. We loved the game drives and saw the big 5 – elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffaloes. We enjoyed the sunrise and yoga on the beach, intention setting, delicious meals prepared by our chef, therapeutic massages, tribe bonding, and more!
