Loisaba Conservancy

Loisaba Conservancy is located on a large flat surrounded by ridges and mountain summits. The Conservancy was established to protect migrating wildlife migration corridors, and it has proven important to the health of the surrounding ecology.


  • The conservancy was formed in the 1970s to help ensure the survival of wildlife in the region.
  • Today, the area is still teeming with animals, and the enormous cow ranch has made a significant contribution to the local community.
  • The conservancy focuses on safeguarding major wildlife movement corridors in the Laikipia area, which connects to other Kenyan national parks.
  • The conservation initiative employs around 300 people in the neighboring villages, thereby contributing to local development.



The conservancy is located on one of Kenya’s most important animal migration routes. Every year, over 800 elephants, numerous buffalo, and the endangered Grevy’s zebra travel over this territory in quest of greener grasses. Some 250 bird species and 50 mammal species are also protected by the conservancy.

 There are three lion prides, a small but expanding population of cheetahs and leopards, and a rare breed of wild dog that was formerly thought to be extinct in most parts of Kenya.


Loisaba is at the forefront of conservation, having undertaken a variety of major conservation measures during their tenure as keepers of this area. The on-site hydroelectric dam and solar panels power all of the facilities, and all water is recycled and reused. Wastage is strictly regulated, with bio-boxes, water recycling, and a combustible waste system used for cooking instead of fuel or charcoal.

 Exploring Loisaba Conservancy

Game drives, walking safaris, horseback riding, mountain biking, and village visits are all popular activities at Loisaba Conservancy. If you want to see large cats, go on a game drive early in the morning.

 The wilderness areas surrounding the reserve are ideal for guided treks and walking safaris; the view is breathtaking, and if you visit during or after the periodic rains, the entire landscape erupts in lush greens.

 If you have prior horseback riding experience, you can ride among zebras, giraffes, and elephants. Loisaba Conservancy collaborates closely with local communities to fund infrastructure, health care, and education. Spend the day with the locals of a nearby Manyatta village.


The cold, dry season between July and October is the best time to visit Loisaba Conservancy, while January and February are also good months to visit due to the short dry season. The rainy season lasts from March through June, and lodges and camps are frequently closed during this time.


Flying from Wilson Airport in Nairobi to Loisaba Airstrip is the quickest and easiest way to get to the conservancy. The flight is around one hour long, and you will be met at the airport and transferred to your accommodation.

 Nairobi is 300 kilometers away from the reserve, so driving will take approximately 6 hours. If you book your excursion with us, we will handle all transfers for you.


Loisaba Starbeds: Loisaba Starbeds is a one-of-a-kind hotel option in Kenya, perched on a rocky cliff overlooking the savannah. Handcrafted bed frames on wheels are rolled out onto high wooden platforms overlooking the conservation area.

The bed frames are shrouded in netting at night to keep the pests at bay.  The lovely green countryside in front of you stretches for miles. If you look up, you’ll see a starry sky or perhaps the golden color of the setting sun. It doesn’t get much better than this for a room with a view.

Loisaba Tented Camp: Loisaba Tented Camp, perched high above the rest of the park, offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

Guests can enjoy an authentic experience updated for the 21st-century traveler, with all the amenities found in a city center hotel, in a series of eight spacious lodges. Visitors can gaze out past the park boundaries from the sunbeds strewn along the veranda and view a wide, untamed side of Africa.

Acacai campsite: Acacai campground is an isolated camp nestled in the untamed valleys of Loisaba National Park. The campsite has a nice, isolated feel to it and is surrounded by several acacia trees. The campsite is next to the conservancy’s largest dam, the “Colcheccio Dam,” which is worth a visit for the stunning views.
