Star Bed experience on Samara

Fall asleep beneath the Milky Way of the Eastern Cape

The essence of the experience

Your enchanting evening begins with a sunset picnic dinner in the light of a dipping sun. 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. Perched at the foot of the Milk River, relax under a raised tented platform featuring a romantic king size four poster bed and mohair blankets, allowing yourself to be lulled to sleep by the orchestra of the bush and the breeze.
