Fall asleep to the calls of the wild beneath a sky full of twinkling stars…
At Loisaba Star Beds, you get the unique opportunity to sleep under the African stars. In Samburu, Loisaba is actually named after the stars – Loi means Star and Saba means Seven, like the Seven Sisters. When you lie back in your four-poster bed, you’re looking directly up at this constellation. You’ll be hosted by the local Samburu people, whose culture is based around astrology. As a nomadic tribe, they traditionally used the stars to navigate, predict weather patterns and season changes.
Star Beds is a rustic experience, like glamping, with these beautiful beds on wheels that get rolled out onto a wooden platform at night. You’re right opposite a big dam which attracts a lot of nocturnal wildlife, so you can fall asleep to the calls of the wild and the incredible stars above you. There’s also a lounge area with a roaring fire, it’s very much like stepping back into the safari era of old, it’s an intimate, romantic experience that guests love.
