Sat atop a rocky kopje, the Loisaba Kiboko Starbeds has incredible views over the reserve’s undulating valley and a permanent waterhole that draws wildlife day and night. In addition to offering guests a memorable experience out in the African bush, Loisaba has a strong focus on making a positive impact both environmentally and within the local communities.
Handcrafted four-poster wooden beds sit on raised wooden platforms that jut from a thatched-roof room and are rolled out each night for guests to sleep under the endless African sky. There are four rooms, one of which has two double beds on separate platforms and is ideal for families. The rooms also feature a sitting area and open plan bathroom with similarly wonderful views.
Rise early to watch sunrise from your bed with a comforting hot beverage, the day ahead promises adventure, with a myriad of activities by which to experience Loisaba. A team of local Samburu and Laikipiak Maasai warriors can show you wildlife on game drives and bush walks, the area being home to elephant, a healthy population of lion, the rare wild dog and an abundance of other species. You can also go mountain biking, fishing and visit a nearby village.
End your days with drinks by the log fire in the communal lounge, before dinner either in the dining area or out on the verandah. A stay here for a night or two twins perfectly with the nearby Loisaba Tented Camp.
A focus on the community
Loisaba’s mission is to protect and enhance critical wildlife diversity, abundance and habitat in the Loisaba landscape while concurrently supporting sustainable livestock production and improving the lives of neighboring communities. Both tourism and livestock bring revenue to the land, in an aim to being self-sustainable and offer over 200 jobs to local communities. The Loisaba Community Conservation Foundation has granted over 80 scholarships to schools, colleges and universities since 2000. The local Samburu and Maasai tribes are full partners in the project and a stay here helps to pay for the education and welfare of the local people.
