The Loisaba Conservancy, which spans 56,000 acres in the remote northwestern corner of Laikipia, is a collaboration between The Nature Conservancy and the surrounding Samburu and Maasai communities. This rugged wilderness is home to a wide range of habitat types and wildlife which includes northern rarities such as Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy’s Zebra, Gerenuk, and Beisa Oryx; there is even a chance to see the critically endangered African wild dog. Guests on the Conservancy can choose from a variety of activities to explore Loisaba’s wilderness and interact with its wildlife. Walking safaris, horseback riding, mountain biking, and even camel trekking – camels are widely used by the nomadic pastoralists of northern Kenya, and are the ideal platform for exploring this dusty, untamed wilderness. Visits to the neighboring Samburu community provide a fascinating insight into this highly traditional cultural group’s nomadic lifestyle.
