Star Bed at Samara Game Reserve

Fall asleep beneath the Milky Way Star Bed experience

The essence of a Star Bed experience

Begin an enchanting evening with a sunset picnic dinner in the light of a dipping sun and beneath a blush-streaked sky. Watch in wonder as the wildlife of the region gather at the riverbank, framed by picturesque mountain ranges, to bathe in and drink its cool water. As darkness descends, marvel at the constellations of the Milky Way stretching across the night sky.  Lounge under a raised tented platform featuring a romantic king size four poster bed and mohair blankets, perched at the foot of the Milk River, and allow yourself to be lulled by the orchestra of the bush and the breeze.

The idea of sleeping the day away in the hushed silence quickly evaporates. As the golden orb is whimsically pulled into the heavens like a marionette on a string, the striking rays kiss the earth and the world of the wild awakens. Booming trumpeting is heard resonating across the vast space as crumpled grey elephants iron out their grey pajamas. Chattering kaleidoscopic birds converge on leafy branches tweeting their plans for the day and gentle lofty giraffe, fashionably striped zebra and leaping impala criss-cross paths to the waterhole. There is nothing quite as sensational as spending a magical night at one with the wild, immersed in the bush.
