Sleepouts (aka starbeds) are a wonderful way to sleep under the stars and enjoy the pure tranquility and raw excitement of the bush. Canvas tents made of heavy-duty mosquito mesh ensure that you are close to nature, but not too close to bugs. It is a perfect complement to a longer stay at a high-end camp. The thrill of being out in the bush, so close to nature, with only a few staff members around, is the pinnacle of many guests’ safaris.

There is also fly-camping, which is done away from main camp, and is light enough to move easily and strike quickly, but still retains the everyday luxuries that characterise the camps – hot showers, comfortable bedding and cold drinks served with home-cooked food. Fly camping excursions are generally for one night and are combined with an amazing walking safari.
