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.

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.
