The layout at Loisaba Star Beds
After a long day of exploring the wilderness, relax with friends and family in the main area’s comfortable eating and lounging space, warmed by a crackling log fire. Sundowners and intimate candlelit dinners can also be enjoyed on a wooden deck with a landscape view.
Each of the four guest rooms—three with private bathrooms and one with space for a family—features a star bed. The camp also employs traditional Samburu warriors to receive guests and lead them to their dining areas after dark.
There are four thatched safari rooms at Loisaba Star Beds, each with a wooden four-poster bed that is wheeled out onto wooden platforms each night (weather-depending, of course). The rustic furnishings complement the thatched roof and natural surroundings.
The actual “starbeds” have become quite the sensation. Each bed in the room is a hand-carved hardwood four-poster covered in a luxurious mosquito net.
Each star bed is uniquely constructed in sync with the natural rocky characteristics. The sitting area and open plan bathroom blends with the surroundings better.
The kopje’s rocky contours inspired the design of the open-air showers, which include solar-heated water, and are linked to a basin and a flush toilet, all of which face the stunning landscape.
Guests can spend the night beneath the clear African sky, replete with stars and the rustle of the night’s wild animals, thanks to the starbeds, which are wheeled out onto the open verandah by a Samburu warrior.
The en suite bathrooms are simple but include all you need, including two sinks, a toilet, a hot water shower, and a window.
There is no compromise on privacy with any of the suites.
