Loisaba is one of the most relaxing, peaceful places on earth. The cottages and starbeds are amazing - the staff is fantastic! They make you feel like family. It's amazing the meals they provided in the wilderness! Visiting Loisaba is a must!

A fantastic place, we had a truly amazing experience! To relax in such a beautiful area, to be able to do various activities always surrounded by nature and peace...It is not only the lucky spotting of Wild dogs, not the beautiful cottage all to ourselves, not even the most romantic room ever under the stars, the staff service, the delicious...

My 2 visiting friends and myself visited Loisaba for a night. I wish we stayed for one more. The area was so peaceful, staff were amazing all local Samburu.

Amazing Amazing experience...The property is built very nicely with all amenities available. It is surprising to see the variety of food options offered and the taste in middle of a jungle.. We stayed for 4 nights and felt that we had a lot to do from Game Drives, to fishing to enjoying the sunset to experiencing the local culture and... More

Beautiful lodge built at the top of a cliff. The rooms are beautifully set to face the wilderness below. Quite high up, not recommended for young children. Our safari guides from the lodge looked after us very well.. and we were eager to see lions which they spotted quickly during our game drives on both days! We were very lucky... More

We had a most wonderful trip to Loisaba from the 19th to the 23 December 2014. We got the contact through a family that lived in Kenya - which is the best way. Its remoteness was astounding. We met not another tourist in the week. Very different from more commercial safaris. We stayed at the cottage as the lodge was... More

Our first trip to Kenya and the first place we stayed...wow!!.The weather was great. Highly recommend the Starbeds. Extremely luxurious under the stars! The staff was fantastic. The game drives were like no other. We went off road, saw wildlife up close. Just fantastic.

We visited Loisaba in December 2015 and it was it was a great experience. Whilst in Kenya we visited two other lodges and although all were different, I have to say Loisaba was by far the best. It felt much less commercial than others we had been to and it really gave the feeling of being in the wilderness. On... More

This glowing review is long overdue..... but better late than never! I stayed twice in Loisaba, once in February 2014 and the second time in July 2014. I have travelled in Kenya for several years and have visited a great number of conservancies, lodges and tented camps, and I have to say, this is one of my absolute favourite places... More
