Our Review

The range of exciting activities at this wonderful lodge are perfect for keeping children entertained.

For the number and type of exciting activities on offer it must be difficult to beat Loisaba but with just seven rooms and two cottages set on a 61,000 acre private game ranch you are never going to find it over-run with children. You can choose either to take one of the rooms in the main lodge or for larger families one of the two houses with private pools would be the ultimate choice. You can of course do ‘normal’ game drives at Loisaba and they offer good game viewing including excellent wild dog sightings, however this is one game lodge where you will probably find you don’t want to spend too much time in a landrover and instead take advantage of exploring the ranch in a more intrepid way including exploring by Quad Bike, Camel, Foot, Horse, Bike or even Hot Air Balloon. Fishing and rafting on their rivers is another great activity.

For mothers keen to escape being quite so active why not send Daddy off with the children and enjoy the pool and spa at the lodge itself. Loisaba is justifiably famous for its Star Beds, well worth doing for at least a night during your stay if the ages of your children allow it. Star Beds are incredible four poster beds on wheels covered with mosquito netting that are wheeled out on the deck so you can sleep under the vast African sky with only the stars and sky for a ceiling. Nights are often accompanied by the roar of lions, seeming much closer than they really are without any walls around you; it makes for an exhilarating night. Loisaba is made for adventure: you enjoy complete freedom to choose how you spend your time … the only barrier is your own imagination. A place of deep serenity, Loisaba attracts big game just as it attracts guests: both know they will be safe and well looked after, free to roam unconfined and undisturbed. A family holiday at Loisaba will be one that your children will remember forever.
