Introducing Ultimate Safaris' Stellar Escape

Ultimate Safaris Namibia continues to redefine luxury travel with magical experiences which amaze, inspire and transform! Driven by an explorer-type determination and enthusiasm, Ultimate started by operating relatively lightweight mobile camps in impossibly remote corners of the country. They have since moved on to committing to help preserve some of the wild places that have captured their hearts and imaginations.

Last year, Ultimate introduced their first exclusive seasonal camp, //Huab Under Canvas. They had a phenomenal first season with fantastic guest feedback.  From being pampered in camp to having days filled with thrilling encounters (the first season saw 100% success in their engaging rhino tracking activity) and enjoying nights of exclusivity beyond most people’s expectations, Ultimate's guests are looked after by a tribe of magicians who aim to leave lasting impressions.

//Huab Under Canvas is redefining luxury, going back to a bygone safari era and foregoing some of the creature comforts of modern permanent camps or lodges. The safari experts at Ultimate have identified a strong desire in many travelers to go back to the roots of safari - to touch, smell, feel and experience the wild, with their feet firmly in the dust that covers Africa.

2017 will see a number of new experiences offered at //Huab Under Canvas, and one of these is Ultimate's new STELLAR ESCAPE.

Known in other parts of Africa as a sleep out or sky bed, Ultimate's STELLAR ESCAPE is set in an ancient dry riverbed on their private concession in the //Huab Conservancy, offering crystal clear skies with nothing between travelers and the brilliant stars. Satellites, galaxies and shooting stars can all be seen with the naked eye, providing the ultimate in 'bush TV' entertainment.

Guests are escorted on their Stellar Escape by their guide, normally starting with a leisurely late afternoon walk, arriving in time for a cocktail or two while enjoying the sunset. A sumptuous bush dinner is prepared on an open fire by one of Ultimate's magicians, and this can be enjoyed while the night sky comes into full splendor. After an astronomy tutorial by the guide, and once guests are ready to retire for the night, the support crew will leave travelers with a radio (for communication in case of an emergency) for an enchanting night under a billion stars, in complete privacy - although the guide can spend the night a discreet distance away if so desired. Guests are woken in the morning by a spectacular sunrise along with their favorite hot beverage, before returning to camp to freshen up and have breakfast.
