Location & Directions

Laikipia, Kenya

Loisaba Tented Camp is located in a 56,000 acre private wildlife conservancy. To the north lie the grassy plains of the Laikipia Plateau; to the south, the Laikipia Plains lead to the snows of Mount Kenya.

When to go

The main season is in January and February, when the weather is hottest and driest. At this time, the animals in the wildlife parks tend to congregate more around the waterholes, making them easier to spot.

In northern and eastern Kenya temperatures vary from highs of up to 40°C during the day to less than 20°C at night. Rainfall in this area is sparse and, when it does occur, is often in the form of violent storms. July is usually the driest month, and April and May the wettest.
