Laikipia Wilderness piece on family holidays in the Sunday Times March 10th 2013
Laikipia Wilderness was featured in the Sunday Times on the 10th March in a piece about family holidays:
"This year, give them more than a beach. Expect wide eyes and
wider smiles on a family expedition says Stephen Bleach..
Most family safaris charge from camp to camp, ticking off
the animals. They miss the point. Kids don’t want long days travelling: they
just want to go wild in Africa. The Laikipia Wilderness Camp, started last year
by husband and wife guiding team Steve and Annabelle Carey with help from their
two young children, is just the place. There’s masses of game to see – lions,
elephants, zebras, hippos, all the favourites – but also masses to do. You can
swim or tube in the river, visit the local village, learn to throw a spear, go
fishing and head off for a night’s fly-camping under the stars. The bush is a natural
playground and Steve is happy to give kids maximum freedom to roam with
experienced guides to keep them safe. Aardvark Safaris has a week, just long
enough for them to become semi-feral bush rats from GBP 2822 including flights
meals and activities. "
