One of the unexpected surprises of an African safari is the night sky. You anticipate the thrill of seeing a lion, elephant or rhino for the first time as well as the sense of freedom and adventure of driving through the wilderness in an open vehicle, but the sense of awe and wonder that engulfs you when you look up at the Milky Way, undisturbed by light pollution or urban skylines is almost inconceivable.
