Meet the Bergers, no strangers to Africa but first timers to Kicheche Laikipia. They and Peter Karuiki put on a whopper of a safari. Each sighting was a nugget seemingly choreographed to outdo the previous one, from elephants in the sunrise to rainbowed rhinos. Aardvarks are tough, but not to this crowd. Leopards in Laikipia are even harder currency but one of the girls spotted this beauty on the flame-grilled grass.
Dido means “one who is born on the open plains.” He is passionate about people, communities, wildlife, and environmental conservation, and he loves working in the bush because it allows him to combine all of his interests. This smooth operator has settled in superbly and his urbane charm has won many friends already, guests and staff. He has migrated from the North of the country but is so at home in Olare Motorogi Conservancy that there is talk of him wearing a red shuka.
