Loisaba Star Beds
Loisaba Star Beds is a unique and luxurious accommodation located in the Loisaba Conservancy in Kenya. The star beds are elevated platforms that provide a 360-degree view of the surrounding landscape, allowing guests to sleep under the stars while enjoying all the comforts of a luxury safari camp.
Each star bed is draped in mosquito netting and equipped with a comfortable bed, warm blankets, and hot water bottles for chilly nights. Guests can also enjoy a private en-suite bathroom with a flush toilet, shower, and basin.
During the day, guests can go on safari drives, guided bush walks, or horseback rides to explore the stunning wilderness of Loisaba. They can also relax in the camp's swimming pool, take a yoga class, or indulge in a spa treatment.
At night, guests can gather around the campfire for drinks and storytelling before retiring to their star beds for a peaceful night's sleep under the twinkling stars.
The Loisaba Starbeds are located among a kopje of rocks in one of the Eastern Valleys, overlooking the Kiboko Dam. Home to a resident hippo family and a main water source for passing game, the Starbeds bring you close to nature.
Loisaba Conservancy lies just off the equator we have the most beautiful night skies. Unique to Loisaba, the Starbeds are an African adventure in themselves – handcrafted four-poster beds which sit on wheels are rolled out onto raised wooden platforms so that guests can sleep under the endless African night sky.
Built on a rocky kopje, the Loisaba Star Beds command sweeping views over an undulating valley and a permanent waterhole, frequented by resident wildlife.
The main communal area at the Starbeds offers a cosy and homely dining room, sitting room and a wooden deck – which is the perfect spot for a sunny breakfast. Guided and hosted by a team of traditional Samburu and Laikipia Maasai Warriors this cultural experience will most definitely be a memorable one.
You will love the handcrafted four-poster wooden beds tha sit on raised wooden platforms jutting out from a thatched-roof accommodation and are rolled out each night for guests to sleep under the endless African sky.
