Mosi-oa-Tunya Bed


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

In the Lozi language, Mosi-oa-Tunya means ‘The Smoke which Thunders’, and is the name given by the to the Victoria Falls, it is also the name we have chosen for the iconic four poster bed of our African Touch Collection.

Built from arguable the finest hardwood in the world, Zambezi Teak, which grows in the magnificent forests surrounding the Victoria Falls. The high headboard of the Mosi-oa-Tunya bed with the ‘falling’ lines of the beautiful Zambezi Teak boards reflect the world’s greatest sheet of falling water – Victoria Falls.

Considering the superb material and world class joinery with which the Mosi-oa-Tunya bed is handmade, it is exceptionally good value for money and will last generations.
