Loisaba Wilderness

Loisaba Wilderness is a fabul;ous place to stay on safari in Kenya.

Type: Eco-lodge and mobile camp

Region: Laikipia

Activities: Bird Watching, Game Walks, Horse Riding, Camel Trekking, Canoeing

Safaris: Spa Safari, Upon Request

Located on the edge of the Laikipia Plateau, just 70 km north of Mount Kenya, this 150 sq. km private wildlife conservancy is in the heart of the Ewaso eco-system. Incredibly rich in both biodiversity and topography, Loisaba is in the heartland of the Laikipiak Masai community. Loisaba offers a rare insight into the cultures, traditions and a way of life that has stood the test of time.

At 6,500 ft above sea level, Loisaba has a temperate climate making all activities pleasurable year round. The same size as Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater and larger than many of Kenya's National Parks, the Loisaba wilderness is a haven for more than 250 species of birds and 50 species of wildlife. The area offers some excellent big cat and wild dog viewing opportunities.

Accommodation

Loisaba Lodge: Built entirely of local materials, the Loisaba Lodge offers stunning views of Mount Kenya. The seven ensuite rooms all have a private deck built into the escarpment; all the furniture at the lodge is handmade. The lodge has a swimming pool and tennis court.

The Star Beds: Exclusive to Loisaba, each Star Bed is a raised, handcrafted wooden platform sculpted into a kopje of rocks and semi-covered with a thatched roof. Natural "Mukokoteni beds" can either be wheeled out onto the uncovered area for a night under the stars or left under the shelter of the roof. Accessible only by camel, horseback or on foot, guests are guided by a team of traditional guides to the sites. Each platform has a private toilet with a camp style drum shower.

Loisaba Cottage: The self-contained and private cottage is built on the edge of the escarpment from local materials. The location, architecture and furnishings are simply breathtaking. The Cottage has its own staff and a private, cliff top swimming pool. It consists of two ensuite bedrooms.

Loisaba Star Camps: Try a unique and personal way to explore and overnight in undiscovered areas on both the Loisaba Wilderness and the surrounding tribal trust lands. These turn of the century expeditionary style fly camps can be utilized on foot, horseback or camel back.
