A beautifully designed property making up part of the Elewana collection, Loisaba Tented Camp takes full advantage of its breath taking surroundings and is nestled within a 56,000 acre private concession. A secluded haven in the heart of Kenya, this camp is perfect for travellers wanting to feel immersed in nature in an exclusive accommodation.


Plan your journey

Location

The camp is located within Loisaba Conservancy in the northern region of Laikipia. Resting on an escarpment, the views from the property are stunning and vast, with plains, scrubs, river, woodland all stretching out from this elevated retreat to Mount Kenya on the horizon.

Rooms

The lodge offers eight large tents each atop solid wooden frames and entered at the rear though heavy wooden doors. With a modern, minimalist design which places the lodge more in line with a hotel than a safari camp, natural elements are utilised carefully throughout. Porcupine quill lampshades, cowhide rugs and elegant white twig screens all adorn the tents and the space flows out to a desk and private grass lawn.

Communal Areas

The main space of Loisaba features a lounge and bar area with a plethora of comfy seating around coffee tables. The lounge flows through to the dining area and adjoining deck which both offers amazing views across the plains. The space is dressed in a neutral palette with splashes of colour, pattern and cowhide which doesn’t detract from the stunning natural space which surrounds the area.

Just a few steps from the deck is the infinity pool which disappears into the plains, a perfect spot for marvelling at your vast surroundings.

Activities

Guests can enjoy game drives by day and night, guided bush walks and guided mountain biking for a more immersive trip through the wild. Horse and camel rides through the plains are also available at an extra fee and a trip to the local villages are perfect for those wishing to delve into the community. Finish your game drive with a traditional ‘sundowner’ by the gorgeous Sosian lake while being serenaded by Turkana musicians. The Loisaba satellite camp can provide guests with the opportunity to sleep under the stars in their star beds.

DRY SEASON

Migratory birds will also be present, offering great bird watching opportunities. A brief drier interlude before the more intense long rains arrive in late March.

After the ‘short rains’ wildlife tends to be less concentrated, and the vegetation will be thicker – making game viewing sightings trickier. On the other hand, the colours of the park are a lot more impressive after the rains, and the large volume of insets draw in migratory birds who will be in their full breeding colours.

Its location so close to the equator means that Laikipia has very consistent temperatures throughout the year, while the high altitude (1,748 to 2,033m or 5,735 to 6,670ft) moderate these to a surprisingly cool average midday high of 25°C/77°F throughout the year. The mornings can be quite chilly, so be sure to bring a fleece.

There are two wet seasons in Kenya. In Laikipia the first known as the long rains take place between March and May, the second wet season is known as the short rains which also tend to be a little less intense, these take place between October and November.

WET SEASON

The exact start and end of the rains are always a little uncertain, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. This wet season is also often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain. As a consequence of the rainfall roads can be hard to navigate and wildlife a little harder to spot. On the plus side rates are at their cheapest and visitor numbers to the park are incredibly low, offering a more private safari experience for those who don’t mind taking their chances. Many lodges do however close during this period; please contact for more details.

DRY SEASON

A more stable and predictable time of the year, usually with clear skies. Also, one of the cooler periods, which makes midday temperatures a little more pleasant. The rains earlier in the year should also have cleared a lot of dust in the sky, making the long distant views outstanding.

As the land begins to dry up the wildlife will become more concentrated around remaining water sources, making it that bit easier to spot!
