EXCERPT: Celestial Escapes

“As the world becomes more urbanised, finding night skies that are unpolluted by artificial light is getting increasingly harder. Up until now, most people plan holidays around what they do in the daytime but as the call of the wild becomes more pronounced, post-dusk experiences such as campfires, starlight cinemas, astronomy classes and sleeping un- der the heavens will become more popular.

“Anticipating demand for Celestial Escapes, luxury travel company Black Tomato can arrange for stargazing holidays to Namibia’s Dark Sky Reserve (the only one in Africa) and Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni salt flats.

“At the latter, guests stay in dome tents right on the lunar terrain. Meanwhile, at the Amanjena hotel in Morocco, Aman has introduced a new ‘Into the Wilderness’ experience in the Agafay desert that gives guests the chance to eat a Berber-style dinner in the light of the stars.”
