Guests at Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp can visit the new Conservation Centre

Guests staying at Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp can learn more about the conservation work that goes on in the area by visiting the new conservation centre that has opened. Elewana Collection continues to support conservation initiatives such as this to ensure that wildlife is protected and can be enjoyed for generations to come.

The Loisaba Conservation Center is located on a 56,000-acre wildlife conservancy in the Laikipia area of northern Kenya, a critically important wildlife habitat. The Center’s main space is decorated with graphical information about conservation and the threats to wildlife. Its aim is to become the hub for conservation education in Laikipia for Laikipia’s community, tourists, partner organizations, government agencies and students. The ultimate goal is for the Center to help inform those who visit Loisaba about community-based conservation and how this model, with their support, will help preserve the area’s habitat and the endangered animals that live here.

Organizations throughout Kenya are banding together to develop strategies to help curtail the illegal killing of iconic animals, such as elephants. Education is one of these key strategies. To share information about the challenges that wildlife is facing in the highlands of Kenya, a team of conservationists and specialists in interpretive educational messaging—from Loisaba Conservancy, The Nature Conservancy, Space for Giants and San Diego Zoo Global—have created a one-of-a-kind conservation facility.
