Luxury safari company, Signature Safaris, are offering a unique opportunity to sleep out under the stars as part of a true African wilderness experience.
The ultimate safari experience, sleeping under the stars comes as part of the brand new ‘Lion Sleeps Tonight’ itinerary exploring the unspoiled South Luangwa National Park.
The magical sleep out experience begins with a night game drive to spot some of the area’s most fascinating nocturnal wildlife.
Travelers will then set up camp under a sky full of twinkling stars as they enjoy dinner cooked up the culinary team and drinks while cozying up around the campfire.
The sleepout experience offers a rare opportunity to live like the earliest explorers, reconnecting with nature and falling asleep to the sounds of nature directly under the stars.
The comfortable tents have only a thin net for roofing allowing guests a clear view to marvel at the beauty of the star-filled sky and the sounds of nature as they rest their heads for the nights.
Accommodation through the rest of the luxury safari experience is at two rustic bush camps in the South Luangwa National Park. Here, guests will be staying far from other camps and people, in simple but comfortable camps that are in the perfect location to explore the surrounding area both on foot and by vehicle.
The South Luangwa National Park in Zambia is popular with seasoned safari-goers who want to get away from it all, the area is well known for being home to a small number of simple and intimate bush camps that are far from civilization.
Despite its size, the South Luangwa has some of largest density of game in Africa. It is particularly popular for predator sightings, including lion, wild dog, and leopard where its healthy population has seen the area nicknamed as 'Valley of the Leopard'.
The Lion Sleeps Tonight itinerary includes two nights at Luwi Camp and two nights at Nsolo where travelers will have every opportunity to enjoy memorable wildlife encounters, both by foot and in a 4x4 safari vehicle. There is nothing more special than encountering wildlife in its natural habitat and realizing that no-one else is sharing this moment or will have those same unique memories.
