An adventurous addition to your safari experience
Reconnect with nature in an authentic way and enjoy the simple things in life. For the ultimate safari experience, return to the wild with our signature Sleepout Under the Stars.

This extraordinary experience is an adventurous addition to any safari, allowing you to reconnect with nature and each other in a simple, meaningful way.

Just like the early explorers, you fall asleep under a canopy of a million twinkling stars, listening to the susurrations of the nighttime bush. A cosy bedroll, bush loo and culinary team ensure that this experience is as comfortable as it is memorable. Each destination offers a unique experience that celebrates the region’s beauty.

Your room is held back in camp should you wish to return.
