Relax under the moonlight with a star bath, spend the night in a luxurious sky bed, take a cosmic safari of the African night sky, enjoy a three course al fresco dinner... all "Under the Stars".
From dining under moonlight in the Masai Mara or the South Luangwa, to cosmic safaris in the Serengeti and star baths and sky beds in the Okavango Delta and Madikwe Game Reserve, we offer a variety of "Under the Stars" experiences at our camps and lodges across Africa.
Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge offers guests the ultimate nocturnal bush experience - sleeping out under the stars in an secluded hide overlooking a waterhole. With nothing standing in your way of the sights and sounds of the African Bush at night, this rustic double storey structure offers spectacular views across the Madikwe Game Reserve. Not available in June and July.
At Sanctuary Baines' Camp your four-poster 'sky bed' can be rolled onto your private wooden deck for a night under the starry skies of the Okavango Delta. If you're not quite ready to get under the covers, indulge in a private star bath set up for a decadent moonlight soak.
Most visitors come to Africa looking for the wildlife and the beauty, yet one of the most spectacular sights of all is the African night sky. In the evening after dinner, at Sanctuary Kusini, the camp manager will uncover the universe with a green laser pointer to show you the way as you embark on a walk through the stars.
Sanctuary Olonana offers guests elegant dinners in the middle of the African bush. As the sun swiftly sinks, the setting is illuminated by a magnificent log fire. Candles flicker in the darkness, throwing golden lights on the table cloth as smiling waiters serve a delicious dinner. After dinner retire to the warmth of the campfire as you absorb the peace and beauty of an African night.
