Feedback From Past Participants

So much Fun and Healing

Very Happy to Have Made The Decision to Join

This trip to South Africa with Yu Yu was phenomenal for my growth as an animal communicator. I now feel a much deeper connection with the animal kingdom that’s far beyond my expectations. My ability to communicate with animals in their habitat steadily increased throughout the journey, thanks to the encouragement and guidance from Yu Yu every step of the way. I now feel much more empowered as an animal communicator. After I came back, I feel my channel is clearer and my clairsentient and clairomniscient abilities became stronger. I’m in blossom.  This trip is life changing!

Before I decided to join YuYu’s Africa Retreat, I was a bit nervous about South Africa.  Now I’m very, very happy to have made a decision to join. There are lots of lots of opportunities to see animals and connect with animals.  It was a small group of people. So we take care of each other. I really feel comfortable in small groups. 

Probably the biggest reason to make differences from other retreats or tour is, YuYu was an owner of her own lodge in that area. So she has an extensive knowledge about the area, animals, people, culture. She is a part of community. She’s not a stranger or a visitor. That is also why we were feeling a part of the community.

After I came back, I feel that my psychic senses increased, and when I do healing, the feeling in my hands became stronger. I feel I can channel more clearly. 

So jump in and experience nature, Africa and culture and animals. You will enjoy it!

It was a pleasure to travel with a group of animal lovers who are on the same path to deepening their connection with the universe. It felt like everything came together perfectly, like it was meant to be. The place, the weather, the animals, the people, the unexpected… the universe favoured us. I had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Many thanks to YuYu for making this trip happen and being the spark that brought everything together.

Certain neighborhoods in big cities such as Johannesburg are not recommended for foreign visitors. The area we are going is a touristic area in the bush far from cities. It is generally a safe area.

The Lodge is situated in the wild bush. The rooms are comfortable tents or chalets comparable to 3-4 star hotels.  Internet is only available at the main reception area. 
Given the room’s design, it features an open wall between the bathroom and bedroom, which doesn’t extend all the way to the ceiling, and there is no separate door for the bathroom. Consequently, there may be limited sound and odor insulation, affecting the level of privacy. If you value enhanced privacy and comfort, we kindly suggest considering the option of a single supplement.
