francolin fields

retreat centre

Francolin Fields Retreat Centre has been welcoming retreatants since May 2017. Situated on a working farm in the tranquil Lions River Valley, Francolin Fields is the perfect place to restore inner peace, balance and to deepen meditation experience. Guided retreats are organised by Kadampa Meditation Centre (based in Durban), supported by qualified meditation teachers. Within the stillness of retreat, we are able to step back from the busyness of our daily life and focus on what is truly meaningful. Self-guided retreats can be arranged on request. 

Guided retreats are fully catered, with accommodation offered on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate. Vegetarian meals are prepared on site, using fresh, organic ingredients, sourced locally from the Midlands where possible. 

Between retreat sessions take time to relax and carry your experience of peace in the following ways:
  • enjoy the tranquillity of the farm 
  • take a walk along the Lions River 
  • connect with like-minded people
  • nourish yourself with freshly prepared organic vegetarian meals
  • explore our bookshop and library
