Sosian Lodge Safari Camel Riding

I’ve always had a soft spot of Sosian Lodge and El Karama Lodge – both in Laikipia in northern Kenya. They are both places that are about ‘doing’, rather than relaxing in a lodge which to me feels like ‘not doing’. ‘Not doing’ has its time of course… but I save that for when I get to the beach. On safari, I like to be out there doing stuff… ‘making memories’ as my friend Tiny would say. These two lodges couldn’t be better examples of this – as these 6 pictures will show.
