Laikipia camps - Koija Starbeds
Anything carrying a handle as romantic as 'Starbeds' has a great deal to live up to. Fortunately, the Koija Starbeds are something really very special. Picture a raised wooden platform over looking a portion of Africa totally unspoilt by human activity rolling away into the distance. The platform is partially covered (for practical purposes) by a thatch roof, under which rests the weirdest sleeping contraption you're ever likely to encounter.
Resembling something like a huge double bed on some sort of bizarre Flintstone wheelbarrow, which can be wheeled out into the open for a night of sleeping in the open air under the stars (safely shrouded in a big mosquito net). As an added bonus, the owners and indeed hosts of the starbeds are the local Maasai, who cook in a traditional kitchen, barbecue style, as partners in a joint venture with Loisaba.
You can reach the star-beds either on foot, horseback, camel or vehicle and can combine your stay with the other set of starbeds, Kiboko, or the main Loisaba Lodge (30 minutes drive away) or one of the other lodges in the area like Sabuk or Ol Malo.Incl.
