Raising the Bar on Safari Luxury — Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs

July 29, 2019 - 3 minutes read

Elewana Collection is proud to announce the opening of Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs tented camp in the Loisaba Conservancy. Perched on an escarpment with impressive views across the magical landscape to Mount Kenya, the five-star property offers an ultra-private experience with eight individual, spacious tented rooms each with their own signature styles.

An eclectic mix of antique and vintage pieces, hand restored in Kenya, were selected to enhance the backdrop of clean, modern architectural design. Décor includes 17th-century French walnut wardrobes, upcycled cedar fence posts used as paneling and 1950’s Americana parlor bar stools. Each tented room boasts its own color scheme that complements the vintage Kente cloth from Ghana that hangs above the master bed.

Service is paramount, with every tent assigned an Elewana Guest Ambassador who caters to guests’ needs, as well as a dedicated safari vehicle and driver, and a highly qualified Elewana field guide who accompanies guests for the duration of their stay.

Guests may enjoy an array of activities during their sojourn including game drives, bush meals, bush walks, bush sundowners, horse and camel riding for experienced riders, as well as access to the Loisaba Running & Trekking Track, designed to give each guest a customizable workout with three different routes.

The new high-end camp complements Elewana’s existing properties in Loisaba Conservancy — Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp and Elewana Loisaba Star Beds.

“Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs is a different kind of bespoke safari experience,” says Elewana CEO Karim Wissanji. “It has been created to speak to the discerning well-seasoned, high-end traveler who has come to expect responsible conservation practices without forgoing luxury and privacy. Beyond this, the opening of Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs is a demonstration of Elewana’s commitment to sustainable conservation across East Africa.”

The 58,000-acre Loisaba Conservancy was enabled when The Nature Conservancy funded the transition of the property to the Loisaba Community Trust in 2015. The transition ensured that the conservancy delivers vital benefits and support for neighboring communities and all Kenyans for the foreseeable future. It also ensured Loisaba’s role as a critical sanctuary and corridor for elephants and other wildlife long into the future, as well as providing refuge for one of Kenya’s most stable lion populations and an abundance of other animals including Grevy’s zebra, wild dog, leopard and cheetah.

Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs boosts the total number of Elewana destinations to 16 award-winning camps, lodges and boutique beach hotels in Tanzania and Kenya.
