Some great accolades for our camps in Tatler's Travel Guide!
We are thrilled and excited that Lemarti and his little daughter Tacha have graced the front cover of Tatler's Travel Guide for 2012. Standing in the breath taking wilderness of Laikipia, Lemarti points something out in the distance; the bond between father and daughter is evident in abundance...
Lucia van der Post says that if there is one reason to travel today, 'it's this: we want our hearts to be touched, our souls to be moved. If you want all this and you want to get beneath the skin of a country, and to fall in love with it, then you can't do it rushing about in a bubble of private jets and airconditioned cars. You have to share something of the life of the people who live there. And so this is what you do - you go walkabout with the locals'
So take her instructions, pack your bags, and come walkabout with SCC. You can hear stories about a great family dynasty of safari lovers at Hogmead, listening to Jay's many yarns by the light of the fire, or head up into northern Kenya where few venture, and spend a week with Helen Dufresne - one of the continent's most hardy female adventurers, or go to Lemarti's Camp on the edge of the mighty Ewaso Nyiro River where Lemarti and his age group invite their guests into full cultural immersion.
With your involvement in our lives comes the importance of storytelling. We'll invite you to understand the great legacies of our forefathers, and in some cases you might even meet them - on the inside cover we see a picture of Boniface, Lemarti's best friend, standing with his son, father and grand father. They are the long line of Samburu who have lived in this area, and today Boni is a favourite guide for many of Lemarti's Camp's guests.
