About Loisaba Lodo Springs
Located within the 57,000 acres Loisaba Conservancy, Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs offers an ultra-private experience with eight individual, spacious tented rooms with impressive views that reach across the magical landscape of northern Kenya stretching out to Mount Kenya.
Service is paramount, with each room assigned an Elewana Guest Ambassador to serve and cater to guests’ every need, as well as a dedicated safari vehicle and a highly qualified Elewana field guide who will accompany guests for the duration of their stay.
Loisaba sits on a vital Elephant Corridor connecting the famous Laikipia Plateau and plays a key role in supporting one of Kenya’s largest and most stable lion populations. The Conservancy is also home to several critically endangered large mammals, including Grevy’s zebra, wild dog, leopard, and cheetah.
Eight generously spacious and airy en-suite rooms are custom-designed and bathed in natural light with large floor-to-ceiling doors and windows, polished wood floors, stylish up-cycled antique and vintage furniture in warm hues recalling the surrounding landscape and wide verandas offering breathtaking views overlooking the Laikipia plains below.
Rooms include a comfortable lounge area with inviting chairs and a writing desk. Bathrooms are luxurious with solar-heated hot water cascading from a rainfall shower to deliver a revitalizing cleanse after an action-packed day along with double-basin vanity and flush toilets. Curl up with a book or relax and take in the view of Loisaba from one of the plush double sunbeds located on the outside veranda.
Activities at Loisaba Lodo Springs
Loisaba is made for adventure: guests enjoy complete freedom to choose how they spend their time so the only barrier is your own imagination. Trek through the bush with camels, mountain bike down the escarpment, horseback-ride or drive through the wild canyons of the two great rivers that span the vast property.
Loisaba is immense: bigger than ten of the world’s fully-fledged nations. You could take months exploring this land and never encounter the same view twice. We can assure you that you will not bump into anyone else and you will see the most extraordinary natural wonders – spectacular animal life that is wild, free, and exhilarating to observe and a kaleidoscopic variety of birds, both endemic and migratory.
One of the best ways to view the wildlife at Loisaba is on a game drive. Whether you go early in the morning or late afternoon, your own informative guide will take you in an open vehicle across the open plains, through the bush, or along the river bank viewing the wide variety of game, birds, plants, and trees. Fishing can be arranged in the river and dams, kindly note this is seasonal and depends on the rains. Equipment, both modern and traditional can be supplied.
Experience the unique exhilaration of riding on the plains with a herd of zebra, walking gently through a graceful forest of giraffe or past a herd of elephants. On horseback, it is possible to get unusually close to wildlife and our stable of horses have all been reared from birth in the bush so are quite accustomed to its presence. We do, however, require a reasonable degree of riding skill.
A great way to view the stunning diversity of Loisaba is on foot. You will be accompanied by traditional Samburu guides whose knowledge of local flora, fauna, culture, and history is unmatched. For a unique cultural experience, spend an afternoon down at the traditional Masai village – a great experience to see how the Masai live, watch them dance and view some of their beadwork.
The traditional mode of transport in the dry land of Northern Kenya and another great way to experience Loisaba. Short or longer walks can be arranged.
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.
