End an amazing day spent out in nature with an unforgettable night under the stars.
Drift off to sleep to the sounds of wildlife under a ceiling of stars after an unforgettable day spent out on safari. Asilia Adventures, our walking safari with fly camping, and Olakira’s stargazing tents all offer guests the incredible opportunity to sleep under the twinkling African night sky.
Savour a delicious fireside meal and recap your day with friends and family over a nightcap before settling down to rest. As you fall asleep, you’ll be serenaded by the sounds of crickets chirruping, snorts of nearby elephant and faint roars of a lion in the distance.
When staying at Olakira, your stargazing tent boasts a 270° view from beneath a meshed net, offering an outdoor experience while still enjoying the comforts of sleeping indoors. If you opt for one of Asilia’s fly camping excursions, you’ll be accompanied by a highly trained and armed walking guide and park ranger, sleeping out under the stars far out in the wilderness.
Both experiences are not to be missed. Reset your body clock, fall asleep under Orion’s belt and wake refreshed for another day out in the wild.
