With unhindered views all the way to Mount Kenya, Loisaba Tented Camp’s perch brings into view an expansive, mottled landscape and its wild dog population, a highlight of the daily 4WD safaris. Sophistication and style celebrates the surrounding vast and wild landscape.

Recognizing the value of time well spent with family and friends, the Elewana Collection introduces discerning travelers to East Africa through impeccably designed lodges that invite true relaxation, as well as the thrill of a real adventure. Complementing their locations in prime game-viewing areas, on quiet white-sand beaches or even in a coffee plantation, are lavish comforts, including fresh cotton sheets, elegant rooms and gourmet meals. Family-friendly, individually styled and exuding warm and personalized hospitality, the lodges are a savvy blend of high-class safari and low-impact tourism. Guests are encouraged to become part of the local community and conservation projects, thereby returning home with a piece of East Africa instilled in their hearts forever.

Accommodations

Guests of Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp bunk down in one of six en suite tents or three Family Combination accommodations. These custom-built tents are spacious and airy with lofty ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, and adorned with chic Africana furnishings with a modern European feel. From here, it’s easy to join fellow travelers in the large dining area, open lounge and bar and one of Africa’s most picturesque infinity swimming pools.

Amenities

While set in the midst of a vast private game sanctuary, far from other lodges, Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp coddles guests in 21st-century luxuries. Power is available round-the-clock, as is WiFi, and there are ample in-tent and reception charging facilities. Daily scheduled flights make it a breeze to get to camp, and even the youngest travelers are happy, with a children’s menu and tents designed for families.

Activities

The Loisaba conservancy is one of the best locations for viewing wild dog, and the views of the great Ewaso Nyiro River and Mount Kenya are dreamy. And there’s more… guests go lion tracking and in search of elephants (the Laikipia area has Kenya’s second-largest elephant population), horse riding, out on camel safaris, mountain biking, out on guided bush walks, on night game drives (in search of the abundant greater kudu, Grevy’s Zebra and Beisa Oryx) and fishing. There are opportunities for visiting the sniffer dogs of the anti-poaching team, cultural visits to Samburu village and visits to the conservation headquarters, where one can learn about the cutting-edge concepts being used to sustain the future of the Loisaba wilderness. Kids are catered to with their own special activities, including fun warrior training classes, in which they’ll learn to make a fire, throw a spear and make a bow and arrow.

Dining

Each day delights with lavish bush breakfasts, picnic lunches and sundowners – the perfect time to gather and share visions of what another day of adventure may bring. Meal times are flexible and there is individual dining. World-class cuisine is accompanied by a premium wine list. Individual dietary requests can be satisfied with advance notice; a children’s menu is available.

Location

Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp is a 15-minute drive from Loisaba airstrip, which itself is a one-hour flight from Wilson Airport. The camp coordinates are N0˚36’25.4” E36˚49’58.0”, and it lies on the edge of a sheer escarpment with views over the Laikapa plateau. Laikapa is the gateway to Kenya’s northern rangelands, north of the Aberdares Mountain Range. This is the only spot in Africa where wildlife and habitat numbers are actually on the rise.
