The Loisaba conservancy is one of the best locations in Kenya to view the very endangered wild dog. It is also home to some big cats such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena. Guests will also be able to view elephant, zebra, and buffalo among many other species.

Horse Riding and Camel Safaris
It is exhilarating to trek through the plains on horse or camel. A reasonable degree of riding skill is required for the horses, but if you are somewhat adequate, this is a must trip. The horses have been reared from birth to be accustomed the bush and wildlife, so you can get very close to a herd of zebra or kudu without disturbing them.
Overnight camel camping trips can also be arranged, if you fancy yourself a nomad for the night.
