Dark Sky Tourism is a small, but growing trend. Statistics say 85% of people have never seen a dark sky, or hardly any stars and have never seen the Milky Way. According to some scientists, we will not be able to see the stars at night any longer by the year 2025. The effects of light pollution are getting so bad that UNESCO now wants to include the sky at night as part of our human heritage because it is such a wonderful sight to behold. It is there for everyone to see. If you have been fortunate enough to see the stars on a bright summer’s night, you will find it hard to believe that this amazing spectacle will no longer be there for future generations to see. And yet that’s exactly what will happen if too much artificial light prevents us from seeing the stars at night.
MasuwE Lodge combines the best of both worlds – the splendor of Victoria Falls & the mighty Zambezi River with safari life.
Masuwe is near enough to the town that you can tackle any of the many adventure activities on offer including white water rafting, the gorge swing or a take in a more leisurely browse at the markets during the day then spend from dusk to dawn immersed in the smells, sights, and sounds of the bush. Game drives, bush picnics, wildlife encounters combine perfectly with meeting the local artisans, standing in the invigorating spray gazing at the Falls and discovering this happy, African town.
Swim with the largest fish in the world. Each year between mid-March and July these slow-moving, gentle, filter-feeding Whale Sharks migrate past Ningaloo Reef. The world’s biggest fish can grow to lengths of 12 meters or more and has a healthy appetite in order to sustain its immense size. Fortunately for most sea-dwellers (and for us) they feed primarily on plankton and krill, taking in huge gulps of water and filtering out their microscopic meal.
Living up among the tall trees in the pine forest of Northern Sweden has never been so easy. Gaze out at Sweden’s spectacular nature from up in the Mirrorcube or the UFO. Watch the Northern Lights illuminate the sky above you and your snowmobile, or take a family fishing trip and learn all about the berries and mushrooms you pick up along the way. One thing’s for sure at the Treehotel, you’ll be inspired by your surroundings and experiences.
