Angama, Masai Mara

Angama is certainly a wow-factor and luxury lodge in the Masai Mara offering a package for you to sleep under the stars in Kenya. In Swahili, the word ‘Angama’ means to be ‘suspended in mid-air’, and they could not have chosen a more appropriate name for this incredible lodge. Angama sits on the very top of an escarpment, overlooking the iconic game-filled plains of the Mara Triangle. With many lounge areas around the lodge, including an amazing veranda with a firepit and bar area, you can enjoy the sunshine during the day, and the stars during the night. Although the lodge itself is quite lit up, the stars above the Kenyan plains are so bright. Between the months of August and October, you can even see both 2 million stars in the sky, and 2 million wildebeest on their annual migration.

Segera Retreat, Laikipia Plateau

As part of Segera Retreat in the heart of the Laikipia Plateau in central Kenya is their one-of-a-kind Bird Nest offering a package for you to sleep under the stars in Kenya. Sat amongst the treetops, the Birds Nest is a double bedroom for couples or friends to enjoy a unique experience. It is designed to replicate a birds nest – with makuti and branches pointing upwards and creating a messy but beautiful ‘nest’. At night, the birds nest will be lit up by candlelight and lanterns, and as you are escorted to the nest, you will enjoy views of the Laikipia plains, along with the star-lit sky. The Birds Nest is part of a larger conservation project called the Zeitz Foundation and your stay here is donated towards the land conservation and wildlife protection programs in this area of central Kenya.

Cottars Camp, Masai Mara

Located in its own private conservancy in the Masai Mara Greater Reserve in Kenya is an iconic camp named Cottars offering a package for you to sleep under the stars in Kenya. Although Cottars has three camps (1920’s, the bush villa and the conservation camp), we are focusing our attention on the stunning 1920s camp which is a step-back in history. The camp is designed in the style of the bygone era of the 1920s. Everything in the camp – from the old-fashioned suitcases to the chandeliers – screams of luxury chicness. The reason we have included Cottars Camp in this list is that they have a copper bath which you can bathe in and star-gaze at the same time. These baths have become iconic during your stay at Cottars and, on a conservancy of over 7000-acres, you have more than enough privacy.

Sabuk Lodge, Laikipia Plateau

Sabuk is another lodge in the Laikipia Plateau which offers an experience for you to sleep under the stars in Kenya. The lodge is amongst the remote wilderness and overlooks the Ewaso Ngiro River. The main area is impressive, with tall makuti-style roofs and a viewpoint open to the elements. In fact, all of the rooms are very open, bringing the outside in. In some rooms, there are beds on the private verandas, so you can sleep under the stars and fall asleep to the sound of the flowing river. This lodge offers a wealth of activities to do during your stay, including camel and horse riding, game drives, walking safaris, and tubing on the Ewaso Ngiro River.
