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.

We are Kenyan residents and have visited many parks and conservancies in the past 4 years. We have stayed in about 20 camps, lodges or hotels, many of them belonging to the Elewana Collection. We have always been impressed by the consistent high quality of services and

Thank you very much for taking the time to share constructive feedback on your stay. We are extremely sorry to hear that your stay did not meet your expectations but do appreciate your kind words regarding the friendliness of our team members. The Star Beds experience is best enjoyed when the weather is good and the bright stars are clear in the vast African sky. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you encountered due to the cold weather and winds. Your satisfaction is of course extremely important to us and should there have been availability in the Tented Camp, we would have happily offerd you an alternative room, particularly when it involves repeat Elewana guests such as yourself. We do apologize for any inconvenience you encountered due to maintenance issues. We are in the process of planning a complete refurbishment of the Star Beds and new mosquito nets for all guest rooms are currently being tailored. Your concerns are taken very seriously by our team and we have taken the appropriate action to improve the service of the Star Beds. Once again, thank you for your feedback. Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to provide you with a more positive experience in the future. Best wishes, All at Elewana Star Beds

Same management team with Loisaba Tented Camp. If you stay at the Loisaba Tented Camp, spare a night to stay at Loisaba Star Beds. Take a camel ride from Loisaba Tented camp to Loisaba Star Bed is a must. We saw many animals along the way i.e. giraffes, elephants and etc. It

This was the first place we stayed at after arriving in Nairobi and I'm so glad it was first! It was absolutely incredible. I couldn't believe how amazing our room (family room) was- the beds were thick and comfy with crisp white linens. The bathroom and shower facing

Hey, I don't know if you got any help. Check on the loisaba conservancy website, on where to stay just select the star beds, then fill the form and they will email you within the day. Just booked a surprise trip for my boyfriend and I, they are really quick to respond. Hope this helps.

Many thanks for your question. We look forward to having you at Loisaba Conservancy. Loisaba has a few different little properties, the Kiboko Starbeds where you were hoping to stay doesn't have a swimming pool. Construction wise, there is nothing going on within a 5km radius of the starbeds... So you have absolutely no worries. Please do send me an email with any queries. Very best regards, Fiona (manager)

"All rooms are brilliant !"
"Room 4 has great views of the dam and sunrise. We had a sun downer and watched the Elephants drink!"
"We were the furthest room from the lodge, which for us was a plus! Completely quiet of any sounds except for natural sounds of the bush."
"Every room has a view of the stars!"
"there are only 4 - if you are stressing about which room you want this maybe isn't for you!"
