Sleeping Under the Stars

”‹Your special sleep-out starts with leisurely afternoon tea and cakes at Kanga Camp, followed by a game drive in the private concession. The excitement builds as you arrive at the specially chosen site, greeted by the staff who have been busy setting up camp. Chairs are arranged by the camp fire for sundowner drinks and then you are invited to sit down to a delicious dinner eaten by lamp and candle light. Later sip a nightcap as you savour the atmosphere and gaze at the stars.

Finally it’s time for bed. Climb the wooden ladder to the sleeping platform where a comfy bed complete with hot water bottle, as it can be chilly at night, awaits. The platform is enclosed by a mosquito net, giving an element of privacy as well as protection. Fall asleep to the quiet of the bush occasionally punctuated with the distant call of a hyena or roar of a lion, and maybe the sound of animal walking through nearby undergrowth. Up on your platform you are perfectly safe.

In terms of ablutions, each sleeping platform has easy access to a toilet and hand basin, and there’s a bucket shower you can use on arrival or in the morning as you prefer.

In the morning you will most likely wake as the sky lightens, in time descend from the platform and watch the sunrise as you enjoy a freshly brewed drink and biscuits by the fire. You are then driven back to Kanga Camp for a full breakfast, and the chance to reflect on your special night in the bush.
