Activities at Loisaba Tented Camp
Enjoy a delicious gourmet meal amidst the sights, sounds and smells of the African bush. The perfect ending to a bush walk, horse ride or camel safari.
Camels are a sight synonymous with Kenya's northern regions. Enjoy a ride on a traditional mode of transport along the Ewaso Nyiro river or across the plains.
Camel trekking is at an additional cost, and normally lasts for 2 hours.
The Samburu of Northern Kenya, a pastoralist tribe, are renowned for their colourful and impressive dress. Guests to Loisaba are invited to visit a local Samburu village to learn about the Samburu people and their culture.
Game drive to Samburu village is included in Game Package, but an entry fee that goes to the community is an extra.
If you are a fishing enthusiast, we have some great dams for both catfish and tilapia! We include a short game drive to the dam, where you may see hippos and other wildlife.
Fishing is inclusive in a Game Package.
Game Driving Day and Night
Loisaba's abundant wildlife across is rolling landscape is truly wild. Loisaba is a corridor of an elephant migration route, and holds a healthy population of lion as well as notable northern species such as the Grevy zebra, Beisa oryx and Somali ostrich. Loisaba is also a home range for the rare and special wild dog.
Loisaba has a fleet of custom-built Land Rover safari vehicles, with special features for photography. The guides of Loisaba are all KPSGA Bronze and Silver rated and have intimate knowledge of the wildlife and the culture of the area.
All game drives are inclusive in a Game Package.
Guided Bush Walks
Leaving the car behind for a bush walk allows an up-close and intimate experience of nature. Take a walk with one of Loisaba's excellent guides, and learn how to recognise animal signs and tracks, appreciate the smaller creatures and flora of Africa, all while enjoying the surroundings at a slower pace.
Guided Bush Walks are inclusive in a Game Package.
Horse riding provides a chance to experience wildlife from a different perspective. Trotting through herds of zebra, impala or giraffe is an exhilarating experience. Loisaba's horses are bush-raised and trained, allowing you to get close to the wildlife.
Horse riding is at an additional cost, and normally lasts for 2 hours. Only riders with experience can partake in this activity.
Loisaba Sniffer Dogs
Loisaba Conservancy has its own dedicated anti-poaching team, comprising of four sniffer dogs - Warrior, Machine, Memusi and Nanyokie - and their human handler team. Visit the team and learn about their day to day training and activities, and also view an anti-poaching demonstration in action.
A donation fee is charged that goes towards Loisaba's anti-poaching activities.
For some excitement and adrenalin, take a mountain bike and your guide and explore some of the biking trails around Loisaba Conservancy on two wheels.
Mountain biking is inclusive in a Game Package
A spectacular African sunset is always best enjoyed with your favourite drink in hand.
