This is our sixth Namibian Luxury Fitness Safari, a life changing experience which continues to both amaze and excite our privileged groups of clients.
Over half of previous Explorers have returned once, twice or even three times because of the personal revelations and fun had on every minute of their trips!
This is a holiday EVERY Explorer has claimed will be unbeatable!
Where else can you live amongst cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, zebras and many more African species whilst working with elite health and fitness coaches, soaking up the hot African sun AND tick off bucket list goals like sky diving?
Your Namibian Luxury Fitness Safari is the trip that keeps on giving because not only does Africa certainly leave dirt on your boots and take a special place in your heart but you will return home with a personal health and fitness plan.
Over the course of 8 days, we will strip past layers of stress and frustration with life and rebuild you from the inside out with world class mindset, nutrition and fitness coaching.
Jon Le Tocq (former UK Personal Trainer of the Year) and boxing specialist, Dan Groves have worked with thousands of clients between them through personal training, sports performance coaching, fitness camp services and online coaching.
You will have minute by minute access to their coaching skills as and when you needed with group coaching and personal appointments throughout the week.
(This includes a deep tissue massage when you need it!)
We use the term ‘appointments’ very loosely as there is no better way to discover your own personal truths and direction than with a dip in the private pool of your 5 star villa, under the African sun….
We believe this is the best holiday in the world.
Not because you get a world class fitness retreat and luxury safari ALL IN ONE!
Not because you’re going to finally discover what’s required to get in the best shape of your life.
Not because you can get a deep, golden Africa tan to take home.
Not because you will be closer than you could ever imagine to the most amazing creatures on earth…
We think one of the most important features is that you will get to experience some of the most mind-blowing moments of your life with a group of people who are just as excited about living life to its full potential as you!
Every holiday we laugh so hard and have such inspiring conversations as a group that you’ll be buzzing to go out and do all the things you’ve held off until now!
LIFE’S TOO SHORT TO SAY NO!
We take this holiday very seriously.
As you can see…
You will need to fly in to / land in Windhoek on or before lunch time on the 5th and fly out on or after the 13th.
Typically we fly with our group of excited explorers from London the day before (June 4th).
So how does the Luxury Fitness Safari work?
The first thing you need to know is that you do not need to be super fit but should be able to run 3-5km without stopping.
That said, you don’t have to keep up with other people as there will always be a trainer at the front and one at the back.
You’ll also do a variety of full body conditioning workouts, fitness boxing, mountain biking, movement sessions and yoga!
All resistance training at our outdoor gym is structured so that sessions are appropriate to various levels.
If you live in Guernsey, there will also be a ‘meet and greet’ with other group members.
5th June: Arrival and first night at Plains Camp.
You will need to arrive in Windhoek on the 5th June 2017.
There will be a group pick up from Windhoek airport at lunch time to take you to Okonjima (Approx. 3 hours of comedy and music through the desert!)
This will be a ‘settle in’ afternoon and the evening will include your welcome meal and introduction with full explanation of how the week will progress.
6th-12th: Full Days at Okonjima
Daily itineraries will be provided on arrival and will be determined to some extent by animal activity but a typical day will look something like this.

13th June: Transfer back to Windhoek Airport and fly home (the worst bit!)
Travel back to Windhoek where you can either fly home or choose to continue your African adventure under your own steam!
The Namibia Fitness Holiday program has a totally unique twist to it with powerful transformation coaching systems in MindMap, BodyMap and Primal Move all built into the amazing Super Six Coaching Program.
Each day will take a different theme based around our six favourite African animals giving you specific insights into how your brain and body works and new ways to train for optimal movement and pain-free, exciting, performance enhancing training!
Giraffe: “The View From Above”. Understanding what’s going on in your life and how to move forward.
Cheetah: How to workout for maximum results and excitement!
Baboon: Personal environments work and getting the fun back in your life!
Lion: You’re top of the food chain! Learn how to eat for the best results.
Leopard: Focusing on pain-free movement with personal assessments and yoga.
Rhino: “The Life of One”. How to be in charge of your life and achieve all your personal goals.
These programs alone are worth your investment because you have 24/7 access to Jon’s mental and physical coaching skills throughout your stay – this really is a health and fitness experience for life!
This is one of the most enlightening journeys you’ll experience on the Luxury Fitness Safari and you’ll go no further than your own mind!
MindMapping is about discovering the mental patterns you currently run your life on and discovering how to change the direction of your thoughts and feelings so you can finally break free from whatever is holding you back.
Jon has run online and ‘real life’ coaching courses with amazing results in people who have previously just felt stuck with their life whether it be work, business, relationships or weight loss.
The process is the same – we guide you through a detailed system helping you find out the truth about what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and how to move forward and finally achieve those goals that keep eluding you!
You will be amazed how your mind can open up and flow whilst on Okonjima so this is the perfect time to get to know your own brain and build a solid plan going forward to hit more of your life goals!
If you spend your life in a constant feeling of discomfort and/or pain in your muscles and joints, you’re going to LOVE the BodyMAP process.
BodyMAP’ing is about finding and assessing restrictions in your body and allowing the brain (the most complex supercomputer in existence) to do it’s job resetting your body and the movement it should be capable of.
Rather than simply stretching this and mobilising that on an isolated basis only for things to go back to dysfunction, BodyMAP’ing uses the power of the brain and neurology to get you back to your natural movement patterns then engrain them so you can move out of pain and begin to perform better in your training, sport and daily life!
Where better to learn amazing ‘new’ movement patterns that re-educate the body on how to move in every plain of motion than the wilderness!
Your Primal Move program will give you exhilarating and varied workouts using just your bodyweight so you develop better movement and release strength you never knew you had!
Not only will this build on the BodyMAP approach to free up tight areas but it will also engage and energise your brain and body!
Your first accommodation will be 3 nights at ‘Plains Camp…
This is followed by 4 nights in the awe inspiring Grand Villa with unparalleled level of peace, luxury and amazing food from your own private, resident chef!
