The Elewana Collection has been chosen by Loisaba Conservancy with support from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), to partner with it in the development and management of its primary tourism assets, a relationship that starts with the opening of a new luxury tented camp on the site of the former Loisaba Lodge. Opening in March 2016, Loisaba Tented Camp will comprise four stylish and extremely spacious double rooms, one even more spacious deluxe tented suite and two family tents, each made up of two double en-suite tents with shared verandas. An exclusive family residence will offer three en-suite rooms complemented with a shared private lounge, dining tent and private pool.
In addition to its bar and restaurant facilities, the property will boast a second infinity swimming pool, with spectacular views across the Laikipia Plains to Mount Kenya; views that are shared by each of the property’s rooms. The camp will deliver first class hospitality, exceptional guiding and an array of other exciting activity options. Not least of all, the property will reflect Elewana and TNC’s commitment to the environment by limiting its ecological footprint wherever possible.
The new Loisaba Conservancy is the result of substantial support by The Nature Conservancy and the consequential transition in the ownership of the 56,000-acre wildlife conservancy and wilderness to the Loisaba Community Trust. TNC’s move to help secure the land ensures that the conservancy delivers vitalbenefits and support for neighbouring communities, the wildlife, and all Kenyans for the foreseeable future. It also ensures that Loisaba’s role as a critical sanctuary and corridor for elephants and other wildlifelong into the future, as well as providing refuge for one of Kenya’s most stable lion populations and an abundance of other wildlife including Grévy’s zebra, wild dogs, leopard and cheetah.
Loisaba represents the single largest conservation investment in East Africa in 2014/15 and was born from a partnership between The Nature Conservancy, Space for Giants and The Northern Rangelands Trust. In recognition that responsible tourism is vital to long-term conservation, a third of the investment will contribute to tourism infrastructure.
