Nature therapy: Forest bathing and animal observation

Saturday 15 October 8:15am to 10:30am

Slow down, embrace your senses and re-connect with nature during a guided forest bathing and animal observation experience at Monarto Safari Park. We have combined the traditional meditative elements associated with Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing) with the opportunity to observe and connect with the inquisitive and calming nature of our animals.

Get exclusive access to the park before the gates open to public, where a Nature Therapist and Forest Bathing guide will lead you on a slow-paced, peaceful wander around the mallee landscape. Experience a new level of connection with nature through a series of opportunities to completely immerse yourself in the unique environment.

The experience will conclude at our famous Waterhole platform where gorgeous giraffe roam, with the opportunity to join a traditional Shinrin Yoku tea ceremony.

After the ceremony, you are free to explore Monarto Safari Park at your own leisure, feeling refreshed, restored and connected to nature.

Members $125
Non-members $155
