I Want a Star Bed Safari, Out of Africa, Like Streep and Redford
“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.” Mother Teresa
The mother is right. There is something utterly grounding, magical and life-affirming about stargazing and the sound of silence…
Now imagine reaching for the stars and embracing the freedom of silence under an Out of Africa Sky, just like Karen Blixen and Finch Hatton, as they danced together in the moonlight. Yes, your star chamber awaits you when you escape on an unforgettable, sustainable safari at Little Makalolo Camp, in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park.
Your star Bed High Above a Teeming Waterhole
Picture a simple, yet divinely comfortable bed, perched beguiling above a teeming waterhole, complete with mosquito netting ,a pizza oven for an impromtu al fresco feast and the promise of a sundowner or two, as you admire the colour spectrum in a fabled African sunset and the marvellous feeling of truly leaving the 21st Century behind and helping to create a sustainable future for Africa, its people and iconic wildlife.
Your stellar resting place nestles on its own secluded, raised platform, with a front row seat on the Milky Way by night and the stars of the animal kingdom by dawn…. it is hard to think of a more romantic, sequestered escape from the hurly burly of the modern world.
Breakfast with the Animals
As you feast on local food, your charismatic breakfast companions could easily be – Lions, hippo, hyena, antelope and herds of playful elephants. It is hard to think of a more wildly romantic adventure than sleeping in a star bed, in absolute seclusion, in the middle of the bush.
