Forest Bathing Cape Town




Shinrin-Yoku - Forest Bathing


Sat 6th May 2023

“Between every two pine trees there is a door leading to a new way of life” - John Muir

So what is forest bathing?

The term originated in Japan in the 1980s where it is known as shinrin-yoku, “shinrin” means forest and “yoku” means bath. Simply put, forest bathing is all about immersing oneself in the forest by taking in the atmosphere through the senses.

Would you like to feel RELAXED, REFRESHED and CONNECTED?

If you answered YES, then forest bathing is for you.


Join us for an immersive guided experience that follows a series of simple processes, known as ‘invitations’, that seamlessly unfold following a curated structure that activates the senses, brings you into the present and promotes a deeper connection with nature and the healing power it offers.

Forest bathing does not require a high level of fitness, we cover 3km’s at a slow and relaxed pace, with a few designated stops along the way. 

At our final stop we will enjoy a tea ceremony and will take some time to reflect on the experience.

Sessions generally take around 3hours but it is best to plan for up to 4hours.

The public forest bathing sessions are open to anyone and everyone older than 16. Children under the age of 16 can be accommodated in private group bookings, see below.

Exclusive sessions can be arranged to suit your preferred venue, duration and experience:

  • Create a deeper connection with a close group of friends.

  • Invite your family and get the kids involved.

  • Unify the team under a canopy of trees.

  • Give your management team time to breathe, clear the mind and renew their focus. 

  • Step into nature and hit refresh before kicking off that corporate workshop.

We would love to offer forest bathing to you and your group.

Feel the presence of the mighty trees, say hello to the birds and the bees.

Drift away to the sound of the stream, observe a thousand shades of green.

Squish the earth between your toes, say goodbye to all your woes.
