15-day roundtrip to sacred sites and places of power, vitality and healing in South Africa

Infinite landscapes, ancient prehistory, beautiful coasts

This is a real dream journey through many mysterious power spots, archaeological sites, megalithic structures, and ultimate South African attractions, including the Tsitsikamma National Park, the Garden Route, the Winelands, Table Mountain, the Cape Peninsula, the Cederberg Mountains and Cape Town. The South African landscape is impressive in itself. It is primeval and rugged, it gives the feeling of infinity, the antiquity of humanity can be felt here. You can just get the feeling of coming home here, at the cradle of human culture.

The journey starts with a visit to the magnificent Paarl Rock, a particularly powerful sacred site. The ultimate place to land and recharge energetically on day one of our journey. We will come back here later…

Our next destination is the Waenhuiskrans Cave, a limestone cave directly on the Indian Ocean, only accessible at low tide. From here we travel on to the beautiful Garden Route and visit the Mother Cave in Wilderness, the Knysna Heads and Knysna Cave.

We visit the breathtaking Tsitsikamma National Park, one of the largest and oldest Marine Protected Areas in the world, with dramatic coastal landscapes, cliffs, caves, reefs, rivers and lush vegetation. This unique coastal park is still in virtually undamaged condition.


At low tide we walk across the beach to Cathedral Rock (on Google Maps you will find it as Arch Rock) and tune into the energy of this powerful portal. We take time to connect with the ancient essence of this place.

Robberg Nature Reserve is a beautiful headland in the Indian Ocean, which was used by ancient civilizations to perform rituals. Archaeological finds from the Neolithic period have been made in Nelson Bay Cave. We hike and meditate and enjoy the spectacular view and the company of hundreds of sea lions and, if lucky, dolphins and whales.

In Mossel Bay we visit Cape St Blaize Cave and Pinnacle Point of Human Origin. These are archaeological sites, found during environmental research for a golf course. These places are famous for the discovery of some 75,000 year old jewelry and bone tools.

We leave the coast and travel to the historic valleys between Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch – the famous South African winelands. Here we visit Paarl Rock again, now with shaman and sacred sites researcher Dean Liprini (click here for his website). We drink shamanic tea from locally picked herbs and meditate. Later in the day we go to one or more wine estates for lunch, dinner and/or a wine tasting.


The Cederberg Mountains are a two and a half hour drive from the winelands where we explore the Bushmans Kloof. A quiet and beautiful canyon with magnicficent rock paintings of the San people. Presumably the shamans traveled in trance to different dimensions of consciousness to communicate with the ancestors, other beings and the earth. We will see, experience and feel it during our hike along the Seville Rock Art Trail.

The next stop is Cape Town where we again meet shaman and sacred sites researcher Dean Liprini. Dean guides us in three days to unique power-spots on and around Table Mountain and the Cape Peninsula. Around the Cape Peninsula, the warm Indian and cold Atlantic oceans come together and this is palpable in the vitality and energy of the landscape.

We take the cable car to the top of Table Mountain to experience the energy of this striking mountain. In Sun Valley we immerse ourselves in the energies of the Pyramid All Seeing Eye Rock and the Ascension Cave, two energetically extremely powerful places on the Cape Peninsula. We enjoy shamanic tea prepared by Dean that helps us to attune, let go and gain our strength. Other places in this area The Great Mother Stone, the Fertility Caves, Great Burial Cave and not forgetting the penguin colony on Boulders Beach.


We end the trip on Dias Beach, the southernmost beach in Africa, a very powerful place between the masculine and feminine of Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. Here we complete the journey energetically and ensure that you can take all the treasures you have found during this trip into your daily life.


After dinner we leave for the airport for the night flight to Amsterdam.

During the journey
We stop extensively at all sites. We then do guided meditations to experience the essence of the areas and places as intensely as possible. You always have enough space to walk around, look and feel the places yourself. This journey contains a wealth of information and food for reflection. Traveling to these kinds of primeval places brings you very close to yourself. Big or small changes that you may have wanted for some time suddenly come a lot easier. By focusing ‘inwards’ every day, we ensure that you really get the pearls out of the journey.
