About Laura Bunting

In the midst of the 2020 lockdowns, five days after Kenya opened its borders, Laura Bunting embarked on a journey to the East AfricanCoast.  As the world embraced virtual connections, Laura was teaching yoga online to her students from wherever she was. One afternoon in Watamu, on a boat, in a creek, Laura met Taru.

After two weeks of enjoying the white sand beaches and blue skies, their journey continued. Laura packed her bags and travelled along the red dusty roads to Tsavo East National Park. TheWilderness changed her life in countless magical ways. Between teaching online yoga classes, Laura spent her days exploring the untamed landscapes of Kenya, immersing herself in the beauty of the wilderness and the captivating wildlife that calls Kenya home. 

During this time of exploration, Taru shared his knowledge and passion about the intricacies of the wilderness—its beauty, wildlife, and the critical importance of preserving these few wild spaces that remain on our planet. This personal experience led to a spark of inspiration which ignited in Laura's mind—a vision of crafting immersive Wildlife and Yoga experiences that would intertwine healing, human connections, and the splendour of nature. And that's how Wildlife & Yoga Retreats came to life.
