Located within the pristine wilderness of the Khwai Private Reserve, Skybeds is a truly extraordinary camp. The ‘rooms’ are five-metre high platforms, overlooking the game-rich Khwai plains and the Hyena Pan, the only permanent water source for miles.
Hordes of animals gather around the mineral rich waters of the pan, including elephants, giraffes, lions, leopards, African wild dog, buffalo, hyena, impala, zebra, waterbuck, kudu, roan and red lechwe.
The waterhole becomes illuminated at night, so you can keep watch for splashing elephants, lurking lions and prowling hyena all night. And while your attention may be focused on the ground, you’ll also have a spectacular view above, with a blanket of millions of twinkling stars.
The Skybeds are open from 1st April to 30th November, and must be booked in combination with a stay at Hyena Pan or Sable Alley camps. The opening period runs through the dry season, and although the daytime temperatures are hot, the evenings are quite cold.
Each Skybed platform comes equipped with a cosy stack of duvets and blankets, and hot water bottles, and you’ll relish the chance to sleep under the fresh open air.
Romantic and private, the Skybeds are perfect for adventurous couples or honeymooners looking for a magical safari experience. With three platforms sleeping six people, the Skybeds is also a great option for small groups, however children must be aged 12 years and above.
