Koija Starbeds

Laikipia tourismDescription

A unique and delightful concept of sleeping under the stars in extreme comfort. The Koija Starbeds are cantilevered over the flowing river and accessed by a footbridge from the opposite bank. These are part of a joint venture project that Loisaba has undertaken in partnership with the Laikipiak Maasai people from the Koija community.



Situated adjacent to the Loisaba Wilderness’ 60,000 acre private wildlife conservancy, on the edge of the Laikipia plateau, on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro river.


Both the Kiboko and Koija Star Beds comprise of 2 double sleeping platforms and one twin platform. Each double platform is designed for 1 or 2 people. The family platform accommodates 4 people (sharing bathroom facilities). Each platform is en-suite and has a large camp-style shower.

One twin and two double platforms have four-poster beds that can be wheeled out onto the deck for a night under the stars. Each platform has an en-suite bathroom with a large camp-style shower.
