"Nothing makes you feel as alive or equally as peaceful as a night at Dinaka’s star beds. Falling asleep under the Kalahari sky to the distant call of a lion; Waking up to fresh coffee and a breath-taking sunrise I was reminded how blessed we are to explore the natural world. The star beds are quite simply one of the best things to do in Botswana."
