Star Bed experience on Madikwe

Sleep under the stars in true ‘glamping’ fashion

The essence of the Star Bed experience

Fall asleep gazing at open African skies in the safety and comfort of the open Star Bed at Jaci’s Safari Lodge. A perfect blend of adventure and pampered luxury, the starbed suite features multi-coloured modern furnishings with custom made finishes that extend to the contemporary lounge area. The jade art deco bathroom sports a massive indoor tub with copper taps and an outdoor shower. Leading off the patio is a private natural lined staircase that ascends to the rooftop area, which boasts a sublime king-size four-poster bed cloaked in muslin and positioned under the open sky. At night you will climb into this rooftop eerie, where you lie tucked under a warm feather duvet as you fall asleep listening to the night sounds of the bush, from the tiny to the downright majestic.

Have no concerns of sleeping in and missing the day. In the hushed silence 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. Loud trumpeting is heard resonating across the vast space as crumpled grey elephants iron out their grey pajamas. Chattering colourful birds congregate on leafy branches chirping 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.
