4 Nights – Women’s Rustic Retreat
3 – 7 JULY 2019
You are invited to press pause and take yourself away to a little slice of ‘Heaven on Earth’ – the very meaning of the name Ponta Malongane. Your inner wild woman is calling you to spend some time with her, re-connecting and deepening your relationship with her.As women, we have strong instincts that are inherent. These can all too easily be quieted by the fast paced demands of life in the 21st century. We are expected to carry the same responsibilities that our fathers had and still be all woman. It may be the moment to sink your toes into warm beach sand and take time out to connect to the profound feminine within.

Courtney has been involved with Halo Gaia since 1999. Her personal history of extensive travel, ethnic music exploration, community living projects and completing her studies in Complementary Health at the Institute of Natural Health all played an important role in the inspiration to apply these gifts. For the past 19 years she has grown intimately close to the large pod of resident Bottle Nose Dolphins that swim the Southern Mozambique coastline.
PONTA DO OURO PARTIAL MARINE RESERVE
Halo Gaia Adventure Travel / Complexo Turistico do Malongane are honoured to have been granted a Dolphin viewing and interaction permit in November 2011. This licence permits RESPECTFUL MARINE MAMMAL TOURISM and allows our water craft within close proximity to the dolphin pods, given that the behaviour of the dolphins is respected.
It occurs to me that we have few opportunities as a species to interact so intimately with other species we share the planet with – except those that have been domesticated and tamed… This wild dolphin connection experience was for me a – life changing event. Subtle – silent and profound. Facilitated in a protected sanctuary – with care and sensitivity – a real gift waiting to be received!Paul
What a blessing it is to meet up with such wonderful human angels that inspire and uplift us with such positive vibrations and warm feelings. It was such a privilege to be a part of all that feminine energy and the dolphins and whales were a bonus.Les
This is one of the sweetest gifts you could ever enjoy. Encounters with bottle nose dolphin and other magnificent creatures of the ocean. I can’t imagine more respectful inspiring guides of the deep than my dear friends, Rhianne and Courtney.Mags
Thank you for a truly magic dolphin gathering weekend. It has had a profound effect on my life and my relationships with those around me. A shift has happened as I find people I don’t know very well stopping to talk and share. I also find i am able to talk to and accept others with far more compassion and the cherry on the top – my paintings have started selling again!Shelley
Being in Mama Ocean with these extraordinary dolphin beings is beyond measure, truly a gift of such grace, it takes the breath away. The wonder, the love, the beauty… immense, simply immense. I highly recommend this journey. It’s a rare and precious gift to meet and play with love in this form..dive in and in-joy.Bebe
Thank you for the opportunity to appreciate the simple things, for the realisation that I need not fear change if it means making your dreams come true, for allowing me to share in this wonderful, indescribable journey with people that have touched my heart forever.Taz
