About Nicci Cox
Reservations and Safari Planner, Yoga Instructor
I only discovered my love for the bush in 2003, when my then boyfriend (now husband) took me on a day trip to the Kruger National Park. When a giraffe crossed the path of our car, I fell in love not only with the man sitting next to me but the wildness and adventure that the bush had to offer.
An insatiable craving for the wilderness led to a holiday home in Olifants North Game Reserve in 2007 where I started to spend extended amounts of time exploring, learning and immersing myself in nature. Since then we have done multiple trips throughout Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Tanzania as well as worked in Kenya and Ghana.
I started to practice yoga in 2015. In 2018, after losing the heart for advertising, I left a 20 year career behind to practice, study and teach yoga.
In 2019, I travelled to Costa Rica to complete the Jivamukti 300 hour teacher training in the stunning wilderness area of Nosara, which got me thinking, how do I combine my passions into one?
Call it fate, serendipity or karma but a mutual friend introduced Amy and I and as they say, the rest is history.
I am extensively travelled, ridiculously organised, and very detail oriented. I am a lover of upside down poses, adventure, the beach and wilderness, and with over 600 hours of yoga training behind me now a certified Jivamukti teacher. I am currently working towards a FGASA Apprentice Field Guide qualification.
I firmly believe in embodying the tenets of my practice but first and foremost – kindness and compassion for the earth and all its beings, through my thoughts, words and actions.
Being part of the Wild Again team means combining all my passions for the bush, yoga, wellness and travel into one incredible adventure.
I cannot wait to help you plan your ultimate trip and re-connect you with Africa, its wild inhabitants and ultimately yourself.
