In 2013 we were devastated to hear that a large bush fire had destroyed the original Loisaba Lodge; today we are thrilled and excited to say that the new Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp is opening on Sunday will open it’s doors on Sunday the 1st May 2016.
The new camp has been built on the site of the original lodge and takes advantage or unhindered views across the Laikipia plateau all the way to Mount Kenya.
The Tented Camp comprises 6 Ensuite Tents (3 double and 3 convertible twin/double) and 3 Family Combinations (comprising 1 Double and 1 Convertible Twin/Double ensuite tents adjoined by a pathway).
“We truly believe that such a stimulating backdrop deserves only the best of accommodations and have created a sophisticated and stylish base from which to explore. The Loisaba Tented Camp’s spacious and airy tents can be left open to the elements to catch the gentle breezes. High ceilings, polished wooden floors and contemporary African styling provide a sumptuous setting when not exploring Loisaba. And in the warmth of the African sun, the view from one of Africa’s most picturesque infinity pools is simply amazing.”
Framed by the Rift Valley, Mount Kenya, the Aberdares and the Ewaso Nyiro River, Laikipia is a multifaceted ecosystem with many micro environments, ranging from riverine bush and escarpment walls to high plains, that ensure a wealth and variety of wildlife. Laikipia is currently home to the largest population of elephant in Kenya, with Loisaba serving as a key migration corridor. Laikipia boasts Kenya’s most stable lion population, as well as the seldom seen Greater Kudu and Wild Dog, and endemic northern Kenya species such as the gerenuk and Grevy’s Zebra, alongside a wealth of other wildlife.
