“The Summer Safari Treatments are ideal for combatting the effects of summer sun and fun,” said Derya Yar Atterberry, President of Africology USA. “Spa clients will experience these delightful products in the spa and quickly become addicted to the blends of pure essential oils and indigenous medicinal herb in the balms, mists, lotions, creams, oils and scrubs. Our spa treatments are inspired by the wisdom of Africa’s traditional healers and celebrate Africa’s vibrant heritage and plant life.”

The Ngrove Water Project is an attempt to help villages access water, a basic human right. With spas being privileged enough to have almost unlimited running water, it is only fair to give back to communities who have to walk many miles to collect only as much as they can carry.
Mr Brown is a very special elder; he has the most beautiful soul and spirit.
Many of his sons passed away and now he has to care and provide for his wives and children on his meager pension money.
He is however VERY skilled. He does agricultural land, carving, and produces all kinds of implements and decorative sticks and our Africology Intonga Amasatchi massage sticks! He is very active and does not like to sit and ponder. Water at his village would change not only his and his wives and children’s life, but also of so many other people and dependents.
