For many of our guests that live in cities, coming to Lower Dover Jungle Lodge provides amazing opportunities to see the stars like they have never seen before. It is not uncommon to see multiple shooting stars every hour, blinking satellites, and the brightest “stars” Venus and Jupiter.

The full moon is also amazingly vibrant, and it is capable of illuminating the entire Jungle Lodge at night to the point where it is almost unnecessary to carry a flashlight in order to see where you are walking. In contrast, the new moon offers total darkness when it is possible to view the huge swath of the Milky Way Galaxy overhead, stretching all the way across the sky.
