As the sun sinks below the horizon, turn your gaze to the stars for a spectacular sky safari. Due to the reserve's remote location, there is virtually no light pollution, meaning that the skies are some of the best in Africa for astronomy. Enjoy breathtaking stargazing and the view from the Southern Hemisphere all from the comfort of your suite at Lejwe La Metsi.


Sip on a refreshing sundowner at the end of a relaxing day at the viewpoint overlooking a waterhole below. Sundowners can be arranged with or without a game drive beforehand and offer a wonderful opportunity to slow down and drink in the vibrant colours of the African sky before the sun sinks below the horizon.
