Elewana Collection announces opening of Elewana Lodo Springs in Kenya
Elewana Collection has added Elewana Lodo Springs to its portfolio of luxury camps, lodges and boutique beach hotels in Tanzania, Zanzibar and Kenya.
The five-star property is situated in Loisaba - a 56,000 acre wildlife conservancy located in Laikipia, northern Kenya - and will complement existing properties in the area including the Loisaba Tented Camp and the Loisaba Star Beds. Elewana Lodo Springs is set to open in June 2019.
Designed by architects Chris Payne and Jan Allen, with landscape architecture by Jo Silvester, Elewana Lodo Springs is geared towards ultimate privacy and luxury service with just eight individual tented rooms - all of which offer sweeping views stretching all the way out to Mount Kenya.
Each tent will be assigned an Elewana Guest Ambassador to cater to every guests’ need, as well as a dedicated safari vehicle, driver and expert Elewana field guide to accompany guests for the duration of their stay.
The complex brings Elewana Collection’s total number of properties to 16 and is the latest in the brand’s bid to aid conservation and sustainability in northern Kenya.
The opening is a result of a successful partnership with The Nature Conservancy, who purchased the Loisaba Conservancy in 2015 to ensure the area delivers vital benefits and support for neighbouring communities, the wildlife, and all Kenyans for the foreseeable future.
It also serves as a vital sanctuary and ‘corridor’ for elephants and other wildlife, supporting Elewana Collection’s mission to create a positive impact on local communities, as well as providing a luxury travel experience.
“Elewana Lodo Springs is a different kind of bespoke safari experience - it has been created to speak to the discerning well-seasoned high-end traveller who has come to expect responsible conservation practices without forgoing luxury and privacy,” Karim Wissanji, CEO of Elewana Collection, said.
“Beyond this, the opening of Elewana Lodo Springs is a testament to Elewana’s commitment to sustainable conservation across East Africa.”
