Sleep under the stars

For some people, sleeping under the stars with just either a mosquito net or nothing at all between you and the big wide wild world, is a step too far away from their comfort zone. However, those who take the plunge rarely regret doing so. Connect with nature and lose yourself in the depth of the night sky.

The night under the stars made our trip so special. It was so romantic, and being on a platform meant I didn't worry about wildlife getting too close. We'll never forget it.
