 we’re the family behind SkyScape

Our SkyScape story began while traveling the world. We enjoyed finding unique accommodation, and then while living in Kenya, discovered remote lodges with views similar to the Mackenzie and the seed was sown.

We set out to provide more than a nights accommodation, we wanted to create an experience that show cased the night sky, the Mackenzie landscape, the beautiful sunrises and the rare commodities of wide open spaces and silence. SkyScape was built with the international market in mind but since opening we have discovered is that everyone who stays, including kiwis, fall in love with it. To tell the truth each time we stay we fall in love again and again and again….

What our guests say…
“Magnificent!!! Truely beautiful by day and night. Sitting in the bath with a glass or red watching the night sky was delightful. A brilliant idea beautifully created.”
“I think this may be the best place in the world! I watched the stars from 3am until 6am. Never have I experienced anything like this. Words and pictures do not do this place any compliments.”
“Wow, What an experience! Such a magical place, from incredible sunrises, silhouetting mountains to star gazing at night. Words and pictures do not do it justice.”
