More info on Loisaba Conservancy
Loisaba is a 57,000 acre conservancy within Laikipia County. It is owned by Loisaba Community Trust. A Kenyan Trust committed to wildlife and ecological conservation. The Loisaba mission is to protect and enhance critical wildlife diversity, abundance and habitat in the Loisaba landscape. Here there are no game park rules, no caged animals and none of the constraints of western life.
It sits on the western edge of one of Kenya’s most important elephant movement corridors, while concurrently supporting sustainable livestock production and improving the lives of neighboring communities. The local Samburu and Maasai tribes are full partners in the project so your visit not only conserves the environment but also pays for the education and welfare of the people who call this remote and magnificent region home. This basic premise infiltrates every part of the ranch.
Home to elephant, a healthy population of lion, the rare wild dog and an abundance of other species, Loisaba is a prime example of successful collaboration between conservation, communities, ranching and tourism.
Loisaba is not just a holiday destination of natural beauty and infinite variety. It is a practical project in sustainable land-use.
Visitors to Loisaba are offered a myriad of activities to experience the wildlife and landscape on many different levels. Besides the normal safari activities like game drives and bush walks, there are many other activities. These include horse-riding, camel-trekking, fishing, mountain biking, cultural visits to Samburu villages and visits to the anti-poaching sniffer dogs.
