So, how does the Bird’s Nest factor into the high-end safari experience? After an exciting day on safari, guests arrive at the Bird Nest just before sunset to be greeted by the structure beautifully illuminated with lanterns. A short but steep climb up to the top deck is rewarded by a sumptuous, picnic-style dinner accompanied by fine champagne. Sunset and the following twilight reveals the sparkling African sky unobstructed by tall buildings or light pollution. Moving indoors and the evening chill begins to set in, guests can warm up with luxurious hand-woven linens and soothing hot water bottles… a peaceful, dream-filled night is in the offing! As dawn breaks, guests awake to find a delicious picnic breakfast set delicately on their doorstep. There’s truly nothing like enjoying a home-made meal above while observing elephants, giraffes and other examples of Africa’s unique wildlife congregate at the riverside far below.
“As close friends and supporters of Segera, we were delighted to work with the talented NAY PALAD team to bring this incredible vision to life,” states Jens Kozany, General Manager of Segera. “We cannot wait to welcome our guests to this peaceful haven and to offer them a truly authentic and unique sleep-out experience, one that is sure to surpass expectations,” he adds. “To wake up to the magical sound of wildlife and birds, surrounded by pristine nature as far as the eye can see, is a life-changing experience; this is a place of true, untouched wonderment.” On nest to goodness, one might say.
