High Hopes for A Positive Return to Travel in 2022

Samuel ‘Brown’ Lengalai Shares His Love for SkySafari, Loisaba Conservancy and Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp

 

 

We sat down to chat with Samuel ‘Brown’ Lengalai, one of our trusted SkySafari guides who is based in Loisaba Conservancy. Brown guides guests who visit the Elewana Collection properties in Loisaba and has a keen understanding of what makes SkySafari and the Loisaba conservancy so special. Here he shares more about his passion for SkySafari, the conservancy and the camps.

What is the best part of a SkySafari trip for guests?

A SkySafari trip is special because it offers guests the freedom to travel and explore according to their wishes, without the constraints of having to be on someone else’s schedule. There are so many options to choose from. If they come to Kenya, they will have a chance to visit Loisaba Conservancy. Whilst here, there are plenty of activities they can do, including the chance to connect with Loisaba’s conservation and community. We offer guided activities such as visits to the Northern Samburu villages and the chance to follow along with our antipoaching K9 dog units which play a key role in wildlife protection. Guests also have the chance to meet the security team units that are really doing an excellent job in the conservancy.

You noted that SkySafari guests have the chance to visit Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp during their adventure to Kenya. What makes the camp so special?

Loisaba is an adventurous place where guests are free to enjoy their time as they’d like at the camp. We offer different activities such as bush walks, camel rides, horseback riding, mountain biking down the escarpment, or a game drive through a fantastic landscape that relaxes your mind, body, and soul. This is what makes Loisaba so special.

What can guests expect to see in terms of wildlife?

Loisaba is a haven of great wildlife experiences with many species that are not found anywhere else in the southern hemisphere. We have many endangered wildlife such as Grevey zebras, reticulated giraffes, and to make this place even more special. We recently found a melanistic leopard which has become the daily talk of the conservancy.

What’s your favourite part of the camp? And the Conservancy?

My favourite part is the location of the camp and the reception that our team and managers give all our guests. The key priority for us when it comes to our guests is how we WELCOME them. What I love about the conservancy is that they are very keen in working very closely with the surrounding communities to make sure they are more involved in today’s conservation activities.

What are some insider secrets you’d like guests to know about the Conservancy?

Loisaba is an exciting conservancy which was born from scratch and thanks to its success, it is continuing to develop in a big way. The secret to its success lies in how the conservancy remains interactive with the communities and plays a key role in conservation development, always with a focus on the bigger picture. We are very excited to introduce a new rhino program, an important process which will involve bringing the rhinos back home after 50 years of being away.
