Sleep under the stars
This is heaven! Well, more a dream, since Tswalu Kalahari’s newly launched sleepout deck, The Malori means ‘dreamer’ in Tswana. This luxury king-size bed is built on a raised deck in the middle of a magnificent 100,000 hectare five star private game reserve. This lodge is part of Relais & Châteaux hotels.
The Malori deck has a raised platform with thatched overhang to keep out the rain. You can also choose to sleep completely in the open further along the deck. The suite has weather-proof blinds which can be rolled up or down according to preference.
Luxury abounds, with king-size bed, exquisite Aldona linen, luxury towelling robes and slippers. There is an outdoor toilet, basin and shower a short distance away on a lighted walkway. Chill out on the deck on the camping chairs and cushioned couch complete around a simple fold-up table. Enjoy panoramic views of the vast Green Kalahari plains and sunsets. You can take the family along too as Tswalu also provide children’s camping beds.
A guide will escort you to the sleepout on a game vehicle from The Motse or Tarkuni Private Villa. Enjoy welcome drinks and snacks, sundowners and a dinner prepared by the chef.
In the morning, a guide will bring you tea and coffee and set up a continental breakfast on the deck. Or you can choose to take a horse ride, walking trail or game drive back to the main camp, stopping for a picnic breakfast along the way.
