Sleep Outs

Guests wanting to enjoy a unique experience will be able walk out to "Sleep Outs" on elevated wooden platforms (weather permitting). These can be arranged at Plains Camp, and are weather dependent.

This is the only place in the Kruger National Park offering this unusual accommodation. Guests will leave Plains Camp in the late afternoon and arrive at the platforms in the early evening carrying a lightweight rucksack containing a change of clothes, a pillowcase, a sheet inner for the sleeping bag and refreshments.

After hanging up mosquito nets, fly sheets (only if necessary) and preparing beds (yes, guests are encouraged to be involved in every phpect of this unique interactive experience of the bush) sundowners can be enjoyed on the platforms that also overlook a waterhole.
While dinner is being prepared for guests on an open fire, enjoy the sounds of the night. Senses are heightened as you share the wilderness at night, while being safely guarded by observant guides. The rumble of the elephant passing by or the roar of the lion at the nearby waterhole, are the only noises that might disturb guests in this peaceful wilderness. The following morning, guests will enjoy a light snack after which they will return to Plains Camp for a hearty brunch.

It is possible to participate in Sleep Out’s from Rhino Post. This is by prior arrangement only, at the time of making a reservation, and guests must be capable of walking for approximately 1½ hours to the platforms and there must be a minimum number of 4 guests participating.
