Things to do


Loisaba is made for adventure, guests can 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 plains and really explore this vast and beautiful conservancy.

Game Drives

One of the best ways to view the wildlife at Loisaba is on a game drive, in a safari converted Land Rover. Whether you choose to go out early in the morning or later on in the afternoon a KPSGA (Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association) qualified guide will take you across the open plains, through the central scrub area or along the river bank.

The Conservancy is a haven for more than 260 species of birds and 50 species of mammal.  home to Elephants, Buffalo, Grevy Zebra and Greater Kudu abound and the area is also rapidly gaining a reputation for the big cats. Wild dog, thought for many years to be extinct in the region, are once again being sighted regularly.

Bush Walks

A great way to view Loisaba is on foot, you will be accompanied by your guide as well as a ranger whose knowledge of local flora, fauna and history is unmatched.

Horse Riding

Experience the unique exhilaration of riding on the plains with a herd of zebra, walking gently through a graceful tower of giraffe or past a herd of elephant.

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.

Camel Riding

The traditional mode of transport in the drylands of Northern Kenya and another great way to experience Loisaba. Short or longer camel walks can be arranged or if you prefer a longer ride along the river stopping for a picnic lunch and a swim.

Cultural Visits

For a unique cultural experience, spend an afternoon down at the traditional Samburu village – a great experience to see how the Samburu live, watch them dance and view some of their beadwork.

Mountain Biking

For the spirited adventurer – Loisaba Conservancy, is equipped with mountain bikes, which offer a unique way to explore some of Loisaba’s varied terrain and stunning flora and fauna


Fishing can be arranged in the river and dams all year round. Equipment, both modern and traditional can be supplied together with drinks and a picnic.
