SPEND LUXURIOUS NIGHTS UNDER THE STARS SLEEP OUTDOORS ON A STAR BED

The essence of sleeping outdoors on a Star Bed

Luxurious comforts and nature combine to offer a completely novel safari experience. The Loisaba Star Beds is a unique accommodation option in the remoteness of the Laikipia Conservancy. Here, thatched suites open onto raised platforms that offer breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness. Each evening, guests can retire to romantic four-poster beds that have been rolled out onto the deck, and lulled to sleep by nature’s chorus, under a canopy of twinkling stars – truly memorable!

Perched on a rugged rocky kopje, the Loisaba Star Beds boast panoramic views over a lush rolling valley and a permanent waterhole that is always bustling with fascinating wildlife. Completing the natural surrounds the Star Beds are built with a rustic nature in mind and blend in seamlessly with the craggy landscape. Offering a sumptuously comfortable sitting area, and open plan bathroom with spectacular views, this is the ultimate extravagance.

Lounge mesmerised in your resplendent comforting bed as the first rays of the golden sun strike the rugged plains of the wild things. Be a witness to the heaving of the earth as she awakens and trembles, and the terrain abundant with creatures great and small rouse  to a new dawn.

A myriad of activities awaits you and what a glorious thought, that at the end of your beautiful day you will rendezvous around the log fire in the delightful Star Beds lounge, and share your incredible stories of the enchanting African bush.

The spirit of Loisaba Bush Camp

Tucked away within a rocky outcrop of the renowned Laikipia Wildlife Conservancy is the charming Loisaba Bush Camp; a fantastic safari concept that allows guests to really immerse themselves in the splendour of the African wilderness. Here, comfort meets nature. Consisting of a thatch-roofed accommodation and a raised platform that commands exceptional views of the Laikipia valley, guests can retire to a novel star bed; a luxurious four poster bed that is rolled out onto the uncovered platform each evening. The room also features a comfortable sitting area and an open plan bathroom.

Your hosts, traditional Samburu warriors, will enchant you with their warm hospitality. Days are spent exploring the wonders of the conservancy on interpretive game drives, horseback safaris or nature walks with a Samburu guide. In the evenings, toast a successful day of adventures around a roaring fire before tucking into a mouth-watering menu with your fellow guests.

What we love about Loisaba Bush Camp

  • Swap a horseback safari for a fun-filled camel walk – the more adventurous can extend this activity and partake in an overnight camel camp excursion.
  • Grab a mountain bike and head out with your guide along one of the trails in the conservancy.
  • Gain first-hand knowledge of the all-important, anti-poaching initiatives within the conservancy and meet the team of trackers and their well-trained dogs.
