Return to the Wild with David Whyte: A Transformational Safari Experience

David Whyte's safari experience
Learn about the healing safari experience that combines adventure with poetry.

It’s not often one gets the opportunity to dive deep within themselves while surrounded by the beautiful African landscape. Rather than connecting with majestic wildlife on this enlightening African safari, you are taken on a journey through the understanding of oneself.

Designed, delivered and co-hosted by ROAR AFRICA’s CEO and Founder, Deborah Calmeyer along with acclaimed poet, author, philosopher and international speaker, David Whyte, this profound experience seamlessly blends the wilderness with poetry and daily healing sessions leaving you to feel enlightened both physically and mentally.

Calmeyer is a world-class travel advisor and safari expert whose love and respect for the African terrain spans farther than just an admiration for its beauty. Wanting to find a way to capture the effect safaris have on people, she teamed up with Whyte, to combine the wonders of a safari with the power of poetry. 

“I first encountered poet, zoologist, and philosopher David Whyte when I heard his poem “Sometimes” in northern Kenya,” Calmeyer says. “In each stanza, Whyte invites the reader to consider ‘the questions that can make or unmake a life’ That poem changed my life as I thought about what questions will guide my life — and my travel decisions.”

Participants will spend five days at the luxurious Segera Retreat in Kenya, a private oasis in the sacred foothills of Mount Kenya and one of the most immersive and inspiring slices of paradise on the planet.. Each day is centered around an element – earth, water, fire, air, and ether – with themed poetry readings and activities including related body work like breath, sound, and energy. All specialized programming is intended to bring guests out of their heads and into their hearts.

This program blends the experiences of the african safari with deep poetry to put into words the sublime feelings you get physically, mentally and spiritually when you embark on a safari and connect with the beautiful, graceful animal kingdom.

“I’m leaving here with a full heart of love and beauty, and I feel I’m just going onto a new journey and having the conversations with myself I didn’t have before, “ A guest who took the trip in 2023 says. 

Roar Africa’s Return to the Wild with David Whyte enlightens people to explore deeper parts of themselves while on the healing grounds of one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Allowing them to connect deeper with nature and the self. 

The safari is set to take place June 12-17.
