Luxury safari camp and lodge operator Elewana recently opened a new luxury tented camp on the site of former Loisaba Lodge.
The 56,000 acre Loisaba Conservancy spans three eco-systems showcasing a variety of landscapes and game viewing, including opportunity to see the rare Northern species including reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra and wild dog.
The new camp is part of the Elewana Collection – a portfolio of 15 properties. Loisaba Tented Camp comprises six ensuite tents (three double/three convertible twin/double), three family combinations each consisting of two ensuite tents with adjoining walkway. The Private Residence houses three ensuite tents (one family combination and one convertible tent) with a private bar, dining area and infinity pool.
Aside from game viewing, the Loisaba Tented Camp also offers two infinity pools (one for guests in the Private Residence) and activities including bush walks, mountain biking, camel riding, lion tracking, horse riding (for experienced riders), fishing, local village excursions and an opportunity to spend a morning with the resident sniffer dogs – Warrior and Machine.
Matthew Brown, Africa Conservation director, The Nature Conservancy said: “Tourism support helps make Loisaba a self-sustaining engine for peace, community development, and wildlife conservation. This is an innovative example of how Africa can both preserve its heritage and create economic opportunities for its people. We are excited to be working with Elewana.”
The Elewana Collection is also now managing the Loisaba Star Beds. The upgraded Star Beds now consist of four accommodation platforms (previously there were three), including one family skybed and a new dining area with a stunning stargazing platform.
