Jane Owen, editor of the Financial Times House and Home section is guided by our own Will Jones on a journey into Laikipia in Northern Kenya.

On her trip, Jane stays at luxury eco lodge, Il Ngwesi, ‘which’, she tells us, ‘is a Maasai-owned-and-run eco lodge’. Benefitting the local land-owners, pastoralists, concessions and the wildlife, this kind of community tourism investment model could be replicated across Kenya, which is one of Wild Philanthropy’s aims.

To hear more about the investments that Wild Philanthropy are making, please to have a look at the website or to plan a luxury safari holiday to Laikipia or the Northern Frontier District of Kenya then please do get in touch.
