Numbu Star Bed

At Mwamba, you have the chance to spend the night on our Numbu Star Bed, set in a wide-open savannah plain. You will sleep in a very comfortable bed while listening to the nocturnal noises of the African bush. The Numbu Star Bed is an exceptional add-on to your safari experience with Shenton Safaris, immersing you into the wild night. Whether you are celebrating an anniversary, a birthday, or just looking to spend a night where only a mosquito net separates you from the night sky. We highly recommend the Numbu Star Bed on nights with a new moon for the incredible view of the starry sky, but it is just as unbelievable on a full moon to see Numbu Plains flooded with moonlight, you never know what you’ll get to see!

The Numbu Star Bed is exclusive to guests staying at Mwamba and is a 15-minute drive from Mwamba. The sleeping platform is beautifully set with a queen-sized bed, warm duvet, washing basin, lanterns and a large mosquito net. A bush toilet (long drop) is available on the ground, under the platform. An armed scout and a guide will spend the night in a nearby boma and will be equipped with a radio, in case of a change of heart. Belongings are kept in your chalet and you are encouraged to take essential toiletries to the Star Bed.
