Guys, I’m fan-girling so hard I can barely write this article. Retreat Yourself Wellness Festival is kicking off, just outside of Cape Town, from 8 – 11 March. It’s like all my dreams (except that one about winning R10 billion in the lotto) have come true.

This 1500ish person, 4-day, family-friendly, vegetarian, conscious and sustainable getaway, gives you the chance to truly disconnect (there’s no signal there, soz Insta Stories) from the world and its worries. Picture the magnificent lovechild of health retreat and a music festival, where wellness, music, food and learning are on the agenda.
“Expand your mind, unravel your body and let your soul dance. Start your day with sunrise sun salutations in the middle of a forest, then meander to a Champagne brunch prepared in partnership with Jarryd’s. Broaden your consciousness in one of our workshops, have a midday Mojito, tuck in at one of the many vegetarian eateries, then shake your tush on a secret dancefloor or at the rollerboogie.”
Tickets are R850 per adult and R400 for kids aged 4 – 12. Bring yo’ own tent for free, or if that ain’t your thang, accommodation starts at R2400 with options like thatch roof, self-catering cottages, simple tents and even glamping, daaahling.
