Spa Treatments

Imagine having a therapeutic spa treatment while listening to the sound of Africa’s natural orchestra…. true nature inspired, sound therapy. Pure, fresh air and a silence so beneficial to the spirit. Many conversations we have daily are sadly clouded by urban noise and it is amazing how being in the African bush can enable one to connect again with oneself. If you are taking a long overdue break to recharge energies and connect with nature, you can now enjoy spa treatments at Sausage Tree Safari Camp on your own private deck.

The Spa line ‘Africology’ meaning ‘the study of Africa’ is based on indigenous healing modalities and rituals. Key ingredients in the products include rooibos, aloe ferox, the omnipresent Marula, the African potato and the Sausage Tree.

Therapeutic in its approach, Africology only uses all-natural ingredients that are bio-identical to your biology; effectively enhancing the integrity of your skin whilst simultaneously preventing premature aging.

The Africology range celebrates Africa’s rich heritage and indigenous plant actives. The product makes use of Kigelia extracts from the Kigelia Africana (Sausage Tree) and its scientific benefits include anti-inflammatory properties, fights against free radicals, tightens the skin by increasing collagen production and increasing moisture levels in the deeper layers of the skin.

The African Sausage Tree, also known as Kigelia Africana has been used for centuries by our indigenous peoples for healing purposes and is derived from the fruit of the tree. It relieves pain and encourages the natural healing process for burns (including sunburn), fever blisters and pimples!

Africology can be considered as the leading natural, eco-friendly and holistic spa and skincare company in South Africa, with its success spanning across international borders such as the USA, Europe and Britain.
