About Loisaba Star Beds
Poised on a rocky kopje, the Loisaba Star Beds command sweeping views over an undulating valley and a permanent waterhole, frequented by resident wildlife.
Handcrafted four-poster wooden beds sit on raised wooden platforms jutting out from a thatched-roof accommodation and are rolled out each night for guests to enjoy the most memorable sleep under the endless African sky.
Rustically designed to complement the surrounding environment, each star bed is individually built in harmony with the natural rocky features, incorporating a sitting area, and an open-plan bathroom with a view.
A team of traditional Samburu & Laikipiak Maasai warriors welcomes and hosts you with their customary warm African hospitality.
Rising early to watch the sunrise from your Star Bed with a comforting hot beverage, the day ahead promises adventure, with a myriad of activities by which to experience Loisaba. A day of fun is rounded off with drinks by the log fire in the Star Beds lounge, sharing tall tales of the African bush, with the tale-telling continuing over a delicious shared dinner.
Loisaba Star Beds is a truly authentic and intimate African experience.
Loisaba is a 57,000-acre conservancy within Laikipia County that is owned by Loisaba Community Trust, a Kenyan Trust incorporated under the Perpetual Succession of Trustees Act and is committed to wildlife and ecological conservation. The Loisaba mission is to protect and enhance critical wildlife diversity, abundance, and habitat in the Loisaba landscape, which sits on the western edge of one of Kenya’s most important elephant movement corridors, while concurrently supporting sustainable livestock production and improving the lives of neighboring communities.
Unique to Loisaba, the Star Beds are a truly memorable African experience. Handcrafted four-poster beds with wheels are rolled out onto raised wooden platforms so that guests sleep under the endless African night sky. The open-to-air bathrooms are designed around the rocky features of the kopje with a plumbed shower offering piping hot solar-heated water, a basin, and a flush loo, as well as beautiful views over the valley below.
Double Rooms – Three ensuite Double Rooms, featuring a seating area, wardrobe and safe, and an ensuite bathroom with shower, flush toilet, and vanity, all under the cover of a thatched roof.
Family Room – One ensuite Family Room, with two double beds, pushed out onto separate platforms. The room features a sitting area, wardrobe, and safe, with a bathroom set slightly apart and adjoined by a short undercover walkway. All rooms can fit an extra single bed that can’t be rolled out.
Guiding & Activities
Loisaba is made for adventure: guests enjoy complete freedom to choose how they spend their time so the only barrier is your imagination. Trek through the bush with camels, mountain bike down the escarpment, horseback-ride or drive through the wild canyons of the two great rivers that span the vast property.
Loisaba is immense: bigger than ten of the world’s fully-fledged nations. You could take months exploring this land and never encounter the same view twice. We can assure you that you will not bump into anyone else and you will see the most extraordinary natural wonders – spectacular animal life that is wild, free, and exhilarating to observe and a kaleidoscopic variety of birds, both endemic and migratory.
One of the best ways to view the wildlife at Loisaba is on a game drive. Whether you go early in the morning or late afternoon, your informative guide will take you in an open vehicle across the open plains, through the bush, or along the river bank viewing the wide variety of game, birds, plants, and trees. Fishing can be arranged in the river and dams, kindly note this is seasonal and depends on the rains. Equipment, both modern and traditional can be supplied.
Experience the unique exhilaration of riding on the plains with a herd of zebra, walking gently through a graceful forest of giraffes, or past a herd of elephants. On horseback, it is possible to get unusually close to wildlife and our stable of horses has all been reared from birth in the bush so are quite accustomed to its presence. We do, however, require a reasonable degree of riding skill.
A great way to view the stunning diversity of Loisaba is on foot. You will be accompanied by traditional Samburu guides whose knowledge of local flora, fauna, culture, and history is unmatched. For a unique cultural experience, spend an afternoon down at the traditional Masai village – a great experience to see how the Masai live, watch them dance and view some of their beadwork.
The traditional mode of transport in the dry land of Northern Kenya and another great way to experience Loisaba. Short or longer walks can be arranged.
For some excitement and adrenalin, take a mountain bike and your guide and explore some of the biking trails around Loisaba Conservancy on two wheels.
