Roving Constellations

Date: February 18, 2016 | By: bigfive | Category: Travel Blog

Ever since we began to evolve, humans have looked to the stars for wisdom, guidance, spirituality and more. We have used them to tell us when to plant our crops and how to live our lives. We have beheld the wonder and searched with scientific curiosity. Indeed, astronomy is the oldest of the natural sciences, with origins deep in the religious, mythological, cosmological, and astrological beliefs of humanity.

In the heart of the Serengeti, very far from any form of any modern-day light pollution, the exclusive tented camp, Roving Bushtops with just six tents lies close to the equator. From this enchanted vantage point, the night skies reveal their secrets; where you see many constellations including the Southern Cross and Orion, home to the Orion Nebula (located in the belt). Between May and October at some point in the night, you can see the Galactic Center or Core, which is the rotational center of the Milky Way.

In this magical and romantic setting, with stellar game viewing, this luxury tempted camp offers an once-in-a-lifetime experience that you can savor during this Big Five’s 10-day Tanzania adventure.
