Terres d'Afrique creates 'indigenous' treatment menu for Four Seasons Serengeti

Wellness specialist Terres d'Afrique has completed a partnership project to deliver a bespoke wellness menu for the luxurious Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti in Tanzania.

Terres d'Afrique which specialises in providing natural skincare paired with curated, customised, sensorial experiences, has created a unique mixture of massages, body treatments and facials for the lodge.

The menu was created in partnership with Amanda Minty from Minty Ink and most of the treatments were developed by Terres d’Afrique, supplemented by some created in-house by Four Seasons.

The menu features a number of ancestral rituals, designed as signature treatments specifically for the luxury lodge.



As part of keeping wellness experiences authentic, Terres d'Afrique chose to use extracts and products native to the Serengeti – such as those derived from baobab and kigelia trees and fresh plants traditionally used by the Maasai, the indigenous people of Serengeti.

The ancestral rituals include the Kifalme (meaning 'royal' in Swahili) – a four-hand full-body massage which harnesses the healing energy of the Baobab – and Safisha (meaning 'cleanse' in Swahili), which features desert jasper stones.

Terres d'Afrique will also provide the lodge's guestrooms with its socially responsible amenity range, which includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash/hand wash, body lotion/hand lotion and bar soaps.

Later this year, the amenity range will be expanded to include items such as bath salts, room mist, insect repellent and sunblock.



Creating the wellness experiences at Four Seasons Serengeti is part of Terres d'Afrique's strategy of creating partnerships with operators which present a "win-win situation" for all parties involved.

“We were looking for a new option to offer our guests in the Serengeti," says Martin Cody, general manager at Four Seasons Serengeti.

"We worked closely together with Terres d'Afrique to design a range of organic treatments that would highlight all the natural healing elements the Serengeti has to offer in a menu that takes inspiration from Africa’s magic and mystique.”

Four Seasons Serengeti houses 77 secluded guest rooms and an elegant spa with six treatment rooms.
