"Loisaba Star Beds review"
When we arrived to the starbeds there was a cosy intimate feel. It’s smaller and more traditional. There are less staff compared to the tented camp however, standards remain exceptionally high.
The food was exceptional. Lunch was an immersive experience watching the chef cook on the grill and then inviting us to make our own burgers with an array of fresh produce. Dinner was unforgettable, a romantic candle lit dinner under the stars whilst the chef cooked infront of us. This was better than all of the Michelin starred dining experiences that I have been too!
The starbed itself is incredible. I can honestly say that the pictures do not do it any justice. It is phenomenal, waking up in the middle of the night to see a perfect sky full of twinkling stars with the odd shooting star and the Milky Way above us just felt like a dream.
It was a peaceful, relaxing, romantic and magical experience and the perfect way to end our stay in Loisaba. We left happy and excited" See all these reviews: 7n in Kenya
"Very special place - Loisaba Star Beds"
Despite every comfort, don't expect a sound sleep on a night out in the bush - we were there during a full moon so not so many stars but very atmospheric, if a little bright!!
Young Taro was holding the fort as manager and doing very well.
There are no signs at all around Loisaba which made it difficult for our next guide, Leshan, to find the place on the night he arrived and for us to find our way out the following morning - the lodge either needs to improve signage or meet and accompany visiting guides from the entrance gate as a matter of course."
