Sleep Under the Stars in Majete

Robin Pope Safaris

The Star Deck at Robin Pope SafarisMkulumadzi Lodge is the only one of its kind in Malawi. The raised square deck sits on a structure built from found branches and logs and looks out over the surrounding treetops of Majete Wildlife Reserve, giving guests the distinct feeling of sleeping in a wall-less, roof-less treehouse. The intimate set-up includes a double bed with cotton linen, bedside tables, a canopy mosquito net, lanterns and seating for enjoying a bottle of wine while gazing up at the stars — or out over the reserve.

One of Malawi’s only Big Five Parks, Majete is made up of woodlands, hills, valleys and forest, and is home to lions, buffalo, kudu, and black rhino, to name a few. Majete is now home again to over 400 elephants thanks to the conservation efforts of African Parks’ #500Elephants initiative. Mkulumadzi Lodge is the only luxury accommodation in the park complete with first-class bush chalets, outdoor rain showers, and of course, the sleep-out star deck perfect for falling asleep under the Milky Way.
