Deep in the heart of Botswana’s 200,000 hectare Khwai Private Reserve, high up in the trees of the reserve, are the unique lodgings of Skybeds.
Sleeping just six guests in three doubles, this is an incredibly private stay. Each of the Skybeds are three-story wooden constructions, with the top floor being an open air bedroom. The décor is simple and rustic, in keeping with the natural bush landscape, however the practical luxuries - such as a fully functioning enclosed bathroom - are also catered for. As you ascend the stairs to your four poster bed under the stars, lanterns will illuminate the way. Lie back and listen to the sounds of the bush as you drift off to sleep.
Since Skybeds directly overlooks a water hole you can expect to game view from the comfort of your bed, however getting out and seeing the rest of the reserve is a must. On a game drive the wildlife spotting opportunities are endless, with everything from lions, leopards, elephants, zebra, kudu, wild dog, waterbuck, buffalo and warthog roaming the reserve.
Fall asleep listening to the sounds of the bush, safe in the knowledge that you are snuggled up high in your four poster bed.
