We spent a couple of nights here after an expedition up Ololokwe and couldn't have been happier. The star beds are a truly stunning and a unique experience that won't be forgotten. Fiona is a Natural host who made us feel very welcome and we found the camp staff to be polite and cheerful especially our guide Yusuf along with...

This is one of my favourite places in Kenya. The game-viewing experience may not be as intense as the Mara, but there is a real sense of being in Africa here, and the stunning views and amazing birdlife more than make up for any lack in "big game." Having said that, in just three days we saw a huge pride...

I was taken by friends with little idea what to expect - so it was all a revelation. I loved the star bed - with all of Africa before you and a real African sky above unspoiled by light from settlements. The range of wildlife on the door step is staggering and a walking safari is a must to really...

I have been a regular visitor to Loisaba and this was my first time staying in the newly renovated star beds, and what a treat it was. The views from the individual platforms are in a class of their own, this combined with the unique interiors (picture beautiful brass basins and showers, amazing wooden features from fallen olive trees and...

An excellent stay, staff all super-friendly, kind and helpful. The views were amazing and sleeping in a star-bed a really fantastic experience. Looking up and watching the stars move and change during the night. Horse riding with a huge herd of Oryx. Relaxing by the pool at the cottage with great food. Well worth a visit :-) I can thoroughly...

There is not much to add to the reviews below. This is a truly beautiful place to stay with excellent yet unobtrusive service, guides that really know their stuff and really beautiful accommodation. We spent one night on the star beds (WOW) and then a night in the cottage. Both stays were fantastic. Laikipia seems to me to be wilder...

Spent two nights at in the Star beds. An incredible place to stay with amazing views of the bush. We couldn't have been better looked after by all there - truly magical. Sleeping in the star beds gives you the chance to wake up to one of the best sunrises possible.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unique to Loisaba, the Starbeds 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 Starbeds overlook Kiboko waterhole, home to resident hippo and frequented by passing animals. The main area consists of an open lounge and communal dining area (private dining available). Guests are guided and hosted by a team of traditional Samburu and Laikipiak Maasai warriors. The 56,000 acre private Loisaba Conservancy is outstandingly beautiful, with abundant wildlife. The Conservancy is famous for its elephant population, as well as big cats and the endangered Wild Dog. ... more   less
