Mkushi beds


SKU: 54764564edxxx-1-3-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1

The Mkushi bed is our standard version of the Mosi-oa-Tunya four poster bed. It boasts the same beautiful high headboard that emphasised the splendid timber from which it is built – Zambezi Teak .

Single or three quarter beds can be built in pairs so they fit perfectly seamlessly for hotel or lodge rooms to form one kingsize bed from twin singles. The Mkushi bed goes very well with our bedside tables, particularly the beautiful Military bedside table. They also compliment an African Touch chest of drawers or trunk.

Material used:

  • The Mkushi bed is constructed from that finest of hardwoods – Zambezi Teak (Baikiaea plurijuga, aka Rhodesian teak). Zambezi Teak is a very dense African hardwood possessed of extraordinary rich golden brown colour and beautifully figured grain, making it one of the most valuable timbers in the world.

Finishes available:

  • Teak Lacquer. This gives a clear, hard finish that brings out the colour and grain of the timber beautifully. It prevents water marks and is easy to maintain.
  • Oil. This gives a more natural finish and texture to the wood.




  • Your Mkushi bed will be carefully packed with air-o-thene foam protected by double walled cardboard
