Five Coolest Safari Animal Group Names

Story by The Travel Yogi

Posted: July 6, 2019

Africa has some amazing surprises in store.  There are herds, zeals, prides, bloats and towers coming your way, and if you don't know yet what those are yet, you will soon.  The Travel Yogi is Kenya bound on an amazing 10 days lux safari yoga retreat.  We're heading off into Kenya's wild and, although we are heading to a 'classic safari' location, this yoga adventure is as far from the tourists and as far from ordinary as you can be.

So, to get you ready to sightsee like a pro, here’s a preview, and a crash course, of groups you’ll see on your one-of-a-kind yoga safari:

Africa Yoga Retreat Adventure elephants  

Herds - Kenya’s very own version of Ganesha.  The remover of obstacles.  Straight up, this big guy, can remove all sorts of stuff... he’ll plow right into it.  Imagine what that power looks like, feels like, in person.  Boom.

  Africa Yoga Retreat zebras  

Zeal - You gotta love English sometimes.  Figure out for yourself if they were named for their infectious calls or their keen fashion sense...


Prides - Simba, maaaaany Simbas, live here.  We're thinking that our unique savannah practices will have a few downward facing 'cats' to work a little extra sighting juju into our yoga safari (ha).

  Kenya Yoga Retreat hippos  

Bloats -  It may just be us, but this dude doesn't look too happy about the hippos' collective noun.  Personally, I just want to know if their wiggly ears really do mean trouble (ala Disney's Jungle Cruise ride...ha!)

  Yoga Retreat Kenya giraffes  

Tower - No guess work here!  These majestic beauties are top of our list for their loping grace and gentle calmness, or so we imagine.  We can't wait to have a million memories to prove that the truth can sometimes be better than our imaginations.

Now that you have the inside scoop on the 5 COOLEST safari animal group names, come see these spectacular sights with your own two eyes.  The Travel Yogi team is looking forward to marveling on an Africa yoga retreat adventure with you...
