Things To Do (Activities & Tour Attractions) & Why Visit Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp On Loisaba - Laikipia Safari?

Key Takeaways

  • Exploring the marvelous landscape of Laikipia with safari game drives in specialized vehicles
  • Horseback safaris so guests can approach grazing animals without the vehicle engine noise
  • Aqua activities like fishing in the rivers, dam or going on a cool-off waterfall adventures
  • Opportunity to go on camelback, mountain biking safaris or night game drives
  • Bushwalking excursions and visits to the Maasai and Samburu communities to interact with the people
The 57,000-acre Loisaba Conservancy in the north of Laikipia (best time to visit) has an immense array of treasures to mesmerize you. Go on game drives in specially customized safari vehicles and the expert Maasai guide accompanying you will proudly introduce you to the land of his ancestors with majestic lions, stealthy leopards, Cape buffaloes and gigantic elephants, and many others roaming just as they have for centuries.

Tour the plains astride a horse and the herds of zebras, giraffes, gazelles, impalas and so many other ungulates will scarcely notice as you pass them by. The rivers that flow through the land abound with fish and you can spend a pleasant afternoon trying your luck angling at the river or even at the dam. Maybe, a raptor-like African fish eagle will have its own catch. You could spot animals drinking at its bank or perhaps, sight of a hippos pod at a distance.

Two other perfect ways to experience all that Laikipia has got to offer is on a camel safari or mountain bike. Choose between a half-day and full-day camel-back safari or biking trip to explore the vastness of this stunning land. Here, you will participate in a bush walk on your Kenya safari vacation to inspect fauna footprints, droppings, carcass and also the smaller life, from insects, amphibians, reptiles, smaller mammals and plant life indigenous to this part of the ecology.

The tribal Maasai and Samburu clansmen are well versed in the art of making herbal medicines from plants and the tribal ranger guiding your stroll will talk to you about them. Later, he might lead you to his village where you could watch them being made along with the gorgeous bead handicrafts that they are experts in. Whilst at Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp, there is also an opportunity to visit the headquarters to learn about the conservation efforts in Loisaba, and participate in anti-poaching sniffer dog activities.
