The Loisaba Wilderness Conservancy, Laikipia Plateau, Kenya 

 The Loisaba Wilderness Conservancy covering an area of roughly 150 square kilometers offers the rare excitement, adventure and privacy of the African wilderness. Although not a place to tick off the Big Five, the varied terrain and diverse habitats of the conservancy nevertheless support a wide variety of wildlife.

The Loisaba Wilderness Conservancy covers an area of roughly 150 square kilometers or 61,000 acres. It’s a private ranch and wildlife conservancy on which cattle and wildlife co-exists on the edge of the Laikipia Plateau, about 100 kilometers north of Mount Kenya.

The terrain varies enormously across the reserve. In the northern part of the reserve there are the vast grassy plains of the plateau. In the south, the plateau breaks into valleys, escarpments and cliffs. From many of these elevated viewpoints you can see the faint blue outline of Mount Kenya. Finally, in the valleys and lowlands a different ecosystem exists, lush groves of acacia, fig and palms, fed by the waters of the Ewaso Ng’iro and the N'gare Narok rivers.

The diverse habitats of the conservancy support a wide variety of wildlife. It is a haven for over 250 species of birds and 50 species of mammal. Alongside more usual animals there are elephant, buffalo, Grevy's zebra, greater kudu and lion and leopard. That said this is not a place to come and tick off large numbers of big game, but rather somewhere to enjoy the wildlife in an area of pristine wilderness.

The property is untamed bush but also a working cattle farm; it conducts important wildlife research and - crucially - works closely with the community who have defended this land for generations. Guests see Africa as it was before fences were invented. Here there are no game park rules, no caged animals and none of the constraints of western life. Like the wildlife we nurture, you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. The local Samburu and Maasai tribes are full partners in the project so your visit not only conserves the environment but also pays for the education and welfare of the people who call this remote and magnificent region home. Loisaba offers a rare insight into cultures, traditions and a way of life that has stood the test of time by being situated in the very heartland of the nomadic Samburu and Laikipiak Maasai people.
