Tsavo West National Park
Mzima, meaning “alive”, is a beautiful oasis of four natural springs in Tsavo West National Park. The source of the springs is a natural reservoir under the Chyulu Hills.
Mzima Springs is a wonderful place to observe the circle of life. Hippos, crocodiles and turtles congregate in spring-fed pools. Fish-spearing birds in turn eat dung-eating fish. And so one feeds the next in the food chain established by the hippos that consume up to 45 kg of grass every night.
The Uzuri Spa and Fitness Forest is situated in the grounds of the Leopard Beach Resort within six acres of indigenous forest. ‘Uzuri’ – meaning goodness in Swahili – is a sanctuary for those seeking tranquility and rejuvenation of mind, body and soul. The spa offers a luxurious combination of original African products and European style treatments.
The extensive menu of treatments for men and women ranges from TheraNaka massage therapies to Theravine anti-ageing facials, hydrotherapy, body wraps and the usual waxing, manicures and pedicures. Uzuri comprises five treatment rooms including two double rooms for couples.
All treatment rooms have an outside courtyard for al-fresco massages, each with showers that complement the hydro baths. Other facilities include Afya Gym – a fully equipped health and fitness gym, a large outdoor Jacuzzi, a sauna and steam bath. A health bar is situated next to the pool offering a variety of fresh juices, smoothies and a selection of healthy salads and light meals.
The latest addition is a dedicated yoga and aerobics pavilion. Soothing sounds, intoxicating aromas, tranquil ambience, gracious staff, peace, serenity and pampered indulgence typifies the Uzuri experience.
