Call it extreme makeover, Africa edition — the new Loisaba Tented Camp opened on May 1st. The open-air dining room, lounge bar, infinity pools and luxury tents are perched on the edge of a high escarpment that looks out over the wildlife-rich savannah lands of the Loisaba Conservancy. While the “Africa chic” decor lends itself to the romantically remote location.
The comfy tents feature king-size beds that open onto terraces with sweeping views — you can literally wake up each morning with snowy Mt Kenya on the far horizon. Upping the luxury level even higher, a special four-tent cluster called The Residence features its own swimming pool and other exclusive amenities. The dining room menu blends international gourmet and Mediterranean specialties. And managers Jani and Martin Scheffer, dedicated oenophiles, have stocked the wine cellar with incredible vintages from South Africa and beyond.
