We have known El Karama Lodge in Laikipia, Kenya for many years now. Murrey and Sophie Grant the owners are immersed in wildlife and nature and their honest love and fascination of the area and Africa as a whole becomes evident moments after meeting them. Laikipia is fast becoming a must-do destination, especially for families and those who seek out something different. The area has been a firm favourite for many years. Its a place where one can get to know the people who made this wildlife haven their home well away from the crowds and now shares it with a select few.
