Loisaba Tented Camp

Feefo logo


Lying in the heart of Kenya, Loisaba Tented Camp is also surrounded by 56 000 acres of private wildlife conservancy that is home to a burgeoning elephant population, all of the big cats and at least two thriving packs of wild dogs, one of the most exciting of all predators to see on safari.

Accommodation is in one of just a dozen very spacious and tastefully decorated tents, and activities include day and night game drives and bush walks with qualified Samburu guides. If you prefer to ‘ride’ rather than walk or be driven, mount a camel, horse or mountain bike for a completely different way to explore the Laikipia plains. This is one of the most diverse landscapes in Kenya, its open grasslands and basalt hills making way for forests of podo, cedar, sandalwood and olive trees. This natural splendour in turn supports the second largest grouping of elephants in the country and the under-threat Grevy’s zebra, one of the most beautiful of its species.

Conservation projects are taken very seriously in Loisaba and as part of your stay, you can learn more about radio-wave lion tracking and visit the adorable sniffer dogs of the successful anti-poaching unit (a donation will be well used and much appreciated). Fly into the Loisaba Airstrip and when not out on safari, relax in the large lounge area or around the rim-flow swimming that has sensational views of Laikipia.

Loisaba Tented Camp is best suited to teenager and adults, and is the sister property to the Loisaba Starbeds, a sleep-out retreat with lovely views. The best chance of a glimpse of Mount Kenya is early in the morning on a clear day, before the mountain's characteristic cloud over comes in and surrounds the peak.

Standard Tent

Loisaba Tented Camp has three en suite tents with double beds, and three with twin beds that can be converted to doubles.

All rooms have neutral décor in natural tones and textures. Furniture is roomy and comfortable, and African artefacts remind you that you are in the heart of Kenya. All en suite bathrooms have double vanities, separate flush toilets and high-tech designer showers.

The staff think of everything like hot-water bottles in your bed and sherry with little treats as a nightcap.


There are three en suite rooms at the Loisaba Starbeds, each with a rollout bed that is open to the stars. Bedding is inspired by traditional Maasai cloth and all have views of the Kiboko waterhole. Look out the Kenyan vehicle licence plate affixed to each bed as a quirky touch!


Loisaba Tented Camp has a rim-flow swimming pool and comfortable living areas. The pool is one of the best in Kenya: painted black and getting all-day sun, it has tepid water and wonderful views over the Laikipia plains.

There are facilities for horse riding, mountain biking, camel trekking and fishing, and qualified Samburu guides will lead you on fascinating bush walks.

There is a top-notch power supply, Wi-Fi Internet access and the camp has been afforded a Silver Eco Status.



Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the main dining room but bush breakfasts, sundowners and bush picnics can also be arranged.

Sample the ruby-red prickly-pear juice that is harvested as part of a project to remove this alien and invasive cacti species (elephants love prickly-pear plants and their thorns are no match for ellies' powerful teeth). Drizzle local Laikipia honey - which is very dark and treacly - on your cereal, porridge or pastries for a delicious treat. Lunch is generally a buffet but dinner is a multi-course affair that consists of dishes such as risotto, beef, crumbed camembert, bruschetta and smoked salmon.
