Kwendalo Upcoming Signature Detox Retreat


19 – 24 February 2023 | Kwendalo Signature Detox Retreat

In our frantic modern world, it’s no wonder that we find ourselves in increasingly poor physical and mental health, harried and buffeted by the fast-paced demands of life – feeling out of balance and unwell. In trying to keep to this pace, we have stopped growing and started simply surviving.

At Kwendalo, our holistic approach to wellness encourages self-knowledge, harmony, and growth. Nourish body, mind and soul during our signature Kwendalo Wellness Retreat comprising a three-day cleansing fast with vibrant juices, vitamin-rich broths and herbal teas followed by a two-day reintroduction of healthy plant food. Our first Kwendalo Signature Detox Retreat details below. During the retreat, our guests will enjoy a bespoke treatment plan to facilitate reconnection with the physical world, balance and revitalisation on a personal journey towards holistic wellness.
