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. "

  1. I completely agree Kids don't long days driving around from location to location. They really prefer going to a single destination and have a blast.
