Loisaba Conservancy, at a glance

The conservancy was founded in the 1970s in order to support the sustainability of wildlife in the region.

Today, the area is still well populated with wildlife, and the large cattle ranch has made a huge difference to local communities. 

The conservancy focuses on protecting the key movement corridors for wildlife around the Laikipia area which connects to other national parks in Kenya.

The conservation programme provides over 300 jobs to the surrounding communities, helping to make a positive impact on development in the local areas.

Loisaba are leading the pack when it comes to conservation - throughout their tenure as keepers of this land, they have spearheaded a number of important conservation initiatives. 

All the facilities are powered by an on-site hydroelectric dam and solar panels, and all water is recycled and reused.

Wastage is highly controlled - bio-boxes, water recycling and a combustible wastage system is used for cooking, rather than using fuel or charcoal.
