Introducing Stellar Escape

Ultimate Safaris has from the onset been synonymous with pioneering safaris in Namibia.  Last year saw the introduction of our first exclusive seasonal camp, //Huab Under Canvas. It has been a phenomenal first season with fantastic guest feedback, ranking the experience amongst the best Namibia has to offer.

2017 will see a number of new experiences offered at //Huab Under Canvas, and one of these is our new Stellar Escape. Known in other parts of Africa as a sleep out or sky bed, our Stellar Escape is set in an dry riverbed on our private concession in the //Huab Conservancy, offering clear skies with nothing between you and the brilliant stars of the Namibian night sky, where satellites, galaxies, shooting stars and the occasional meteor can all be seen with the naked eye. Guests are escorted on their Stellar Escape by their guide, normally starting with a leisurely late afternoon walk, arriving in time for a cocktail or two while enjoying the sunset. A sumptuous bush dinner is prepared on an open fire. After an astronomy tutorial by your guide, and once you are ready to retire for the night, your crew will leave you with a radio (for communication in case of an emergency) and leave you for an enchanting night under a billion stars, in complete privacy - although your guide can spend the night a discreet distance away if so desired. You will be woken by a spectacular sunrise and hot beverage, before returning to camp to freshen up and have breakfast.
