This hardwood bed is designed to be knock down and disassembles for ease of transport and installation. It is very simple to re-assemble, and instructions will be provided if necessary. For hotel and lodge situations where two single beds may need to come together to form a king size bed, we will build the adjoining rails level with the base slats to allow a mattress to sit snugly across the whole frame.

To accompany this splendid bed we have the Campaign bedside table or the Bedside Table.

Guarantee

Guarantee

We offer a 15 year warranty on your Mosi-oa-Tunya bed for any flaws in construction or material (except natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks etc.) Miss handling or inappropriate use of the product will invalidate the warranty.

We will supply you with our suggested care and maintenance guidelines to ensure life-long enjoyment of your furniture. However we cannot be held responsible for repairing / replacing this product if you don’t follow these guidelines.

We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.

The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.
