Last year I had the great pleasure of time at the beautiful Samara Private Game Reserve near Graaff-Reinet, and the big open skies and pristine land soothed my heart.

Now adding to the magic, Samara will be launching the Milky Way Star Bed Experience at the end of February 2017, providing guests with a romantic wilderness experience that will take their breath away.

Set against a dramatic mountain backdrop in a secluded location, the platform comprises a bespoke four-poster bed with draped mosquito net. A seating area looks out over the river where wildlife descends to drink. A canvas roof provides shelter in case of inclement weather. Creature comforts are taken care of with luxurious sheets, mohair blankets, dressing gowns and bathroom facilities. A truly ‘Karoo’ luxury sleep-out experience – lit by the twinkling stars overhead.

How incredible, I want back for this. Also, I’m yet to spot one of their elusive and precious Aardvarks.

The award-winning Samara Private Game Reserve Award is located on 70,000 acres of wilderness in the Great Karoo, offering breathtaking views over the Plains of Camdeboo. It boasts over 60 mammal species, including aardvark, cheetah, Cape mountain zebra, giraffe, black and white rhino, buffalo, eland and gemsbok to name but a few.
