Ultra-luxe sleep out
under the Milky Way

Kick Your Travel Bucket List up a Notch with an ultra-luxe sleep out under the Milky Way

Star beds… Imagine literally counting the shooting stars as you are about to fall asleep? This is not a simply sleep out – this is an adventure with Africa, one-on-one.

Africa is blessed with crazy constellations and soaring stars that flood our skies once the sun dances back down below the horizon every evening.

Booking a star bed is not camping by any means. Be it a rooftop bed, a treehouse or a lakeside camp — it is a whole experience and it comes with candle lights and champagne and maybe a picnic dinner prepared by a 5-star chef.

The location is generally strategic, like a passage of many animals, drawn to the water in the coolness of early evening and morning. Watch on from your bed, shower, or breakfast table… Rest assured, each star bed is securely constructed above the ground, so the animals remain at a safe and comfortable distance.

Your field guide will provide a full orientation before he departs. But he is always on call via radio until he collects you the next morning, after sunrise and a good breakfast. As you arrive at sunset to a picnic, spend the dusk hours spotting wildlife out in the bush… And fall asleep counting shooting stars.

Extreme in Africa

Extreme in Africa

Most places in Africa offer extreme sports which appeal to thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. Extreme in Africa covers Abseiling, Bungee jumping, Shark Cage Diving, Rapp Jumping, Hot Air Balloon experiences – here you can do it all.
Book a trip with Salute Africa and allow us to incorporate an unforgettable, thrilling experience into your visit.

BUNGEE JUMPING

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to fly? Bungee Jumping involves falling from an astonishing height, plummeting towards a beautiful body of water and just as your fingertips caress the water your bungee rope hoists you up and to safety. For the moments before the rope tightens you are flying. A great place to Bungee Jump is at the Bloukrans Bridge in the Western Cape.

ABSEILING

Abseiling was once only used as a way for mountain climbers to get back to the bottom of a tall mountain, however, it is now a recreational activity and is not for the fainthearted. Abseiling involves descending a mountain face while being supported by only a harness and safety ropes. This can be professionally done without the help of a guide however for beginners it is much safer to have a professional to assist.

SHARK CAGE DIVING

Shark Cage Diving has become popular over the years, it involves a person or small group of people being lowered into the ocean or a controlled body of water in the safety of a cage. The cage allows you to see everything around you and still ensures your safety. This is a magnificent way to get up close to one of the most dangerous creatures of the deep and see them in their natural habitat. Although you may have to wait patiently for the sharks to show their face, the end result is worth it. A great place to go Shark Cage Diving is at Aliwal Shoal.

RAPP JUMPING

This is a rather new sport in Africa, it is very similar to Abseiling in that it involves running down the side of massive mountain faces secured by only a rope on your back. This is definitely not for the fainthearted, this activity offers an extreme rush of adrenaline and provides a great story.

HOT AIR BALLOON RIDES

Did you know that this is the oldest form of flight known to man? A Hot Air Balloon ride allows you to gaze at the magnificent African landscape below and gives you an uninterrupted view of nature and habitats beneath you. There is no better view than a bird’s eye view. These rides are accompanied by a guide who will share their knowledge with you and keep you safe at all times.

Explore Africa

Explore Africa – Nature

South African nature is like no other, the biodiversity and different habitats are endless. The vegetation here is divided into four different sections. Each one unique and spectacular. These sections are as follows: Fynbos, Karoo, Highveld, and Lowveld. Explore Africa with us and get acquainted with the diverse climatic zones and their inhabitants.

Fynbos

You can find his natural vegetation in the Western Cape, South Africa. It is most prominent during the rainy season as well as around mountainous areas. The Giant Protea is popular here. The species here are endless… We appreciate that there are 8700 species found here with an alarming 75% of them endemic to the area! The plant family that has the most species in the Fynbos is the Daisy family. The Tsitsikamma forest along the coast is the perfect place we choose for tourists to experience the Fynbos in all its glory. And another great attraction that we strongly advise to visit in this area is Table Mountain. Here you may stumble across a Red Disa, an almost extinct, protected orchid also called the “Pride of Table Mountain”.

The Karoo

The Karoo vegetation is North of Fynbos, the precipitation here is lower than that of the Western Cape. We describe this area as semi-desert. As it is separated into two parts, the Little Karoo and the Great Karoo. The Little Karoo is at the top of the Succulent Karoo. It has the richest succulent plant flora in the world. We find it fascinating that a shocking 10000 species of succulent plants grow in this region. The plants that grow in the Karoo and the flowers that bloom during September are truly fascinating and simply beautiful and make you come back more to explore Africa.

Highveld

The Highveld is a grassy plateau further towards the North East region. And here we will find some of the most important commercial farming areas in the country. The most prominent vegetation in this area is grassland and savannah. The dry seasons are often accompanied by fires, that is why trees and shrubs were never able to thrive here. Another contributing factor is a large number of grazing livestock. The Highveld is also home to a number of endangered animals. These are a rare sight but are a magnificent find and we really love it here.

Lowveld

The Lowveld is even further North East from the Karoo, this region is in the Limpopo Valley bordering Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The vegetation here is described as a tropical savannah. We think that a great place to experience this vegetation is in the Kruger National Park. You will come across thousands of plant species here, some of which are extremely rare.

Desert

The western regions of South Africa are the Kalahari and Namib deserts. The composition of the Namib flora is extremely endemic. That’s why here you can see South African springhare, antelope, lizards, Gekkonidae, golden moles, meerkats, hyenas, as well as many arachnids.

Kalahari is the largest desert in South Africa. Red-brown or orange-brown sand gives life to some species of acacias, grasses, wild watermelons. There are xerophytic bushes, succulent plants, and crassulas in the dune zone. We love all those Gerbillus, striped mice, rats, African ground squirrel, Cape buffaloes, wildebeest, springboks, hyenas, and of course lizards.

Book your trip to South Africa and see these beautiful habitats and biomes for yourself with Salute Africa as your guide. Firstly, we would love to help you to get acquainted with the diverse climatic zones and their inhabitants. Secondly, we will show the amazing ways in which plants and animals adapt to life in different conditions. And lastly, the guide’s stories will simply amaze your imagination… And the landscapes will forever remain in your memory.
