Loisaba

Loisaba Lodge is a luxurious and authentic African safari camp situated high on the edge of a plateau lying south towards Mount Kenya on the border of Laikipia and Kenya’s rugged Northern Frontier, just a few miles from the equator. The accommodation is spacious and luxurious, consisting of 7 rooms, including a larger suite to accommodate family safari groups. The rooms all have large French doors that open out onto private decks with magnificent sweeping views of the surrounding plains and a watering hole below which attracts large numbers of wildlife.

Another unique feature at Loisaba are the Star Beds – two double beds and a family suite on raised sleeping platforms under the open ceiling of the star filled African sky.

A stay at Loisaba is filled with adventure and freedom to choose how you would like to while away the hours. Activities are varied and include camel trekking through the bush, mountain biking, horseback riding, rafting on the river, rock climbing and micro-lighting. Scenic light aircraft flights can also be arranged. If you prefer your activities closer to the ground then you could play a game of tennis with one of the locals or simply lie by the pool.

Elsa’s Kopje

Elsa’s Kopje is built close to the site where George and Joy Adamson’s original camp in Northern Kenya’s Meru national Park where they released Elsa the lioness into the wild. The park has 13 rivers which run off the mountain and through the otherwise dry landscape, creating pockets of green vegetation. The camp has nine stone and thatched cottages which blend seamlessly into the environment. These cottages are spaced far enough apart from each other to offer guests complete privacy with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside.

Activities include day and night game drives, guided walks, cultural visits, rafting and fishing on the Tana River and excursions to the Kora National Park.

Although the Meru National Park is one of Kenya’s major national parks, it is often overlooked by the majority of tourists which enhances its appeal to those who enjoy the “road less travelled”. The wildlife is diverse and includes large herds of elephant, lion, leopard, hippo, zebra, giraffe and cheetah. The birdlife is also prolific with approximately 280 recorded species.

Luxury safari pricing guide

We aim to provide you with your ideal holiday, individually designed just for you and expertly organised. When you book with us you receive this perfectly designed holiday, travel advice and preparation, flawless organisation of the trip, ATOL financial protection and our 25 years’ experience. Because we have excellent confidential rates with lodges and airlines, the price of your holiday will be generally the same as you would pay were you to somehow book all the lodges, transfers and flights yourself.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.

Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
