          How is the current drought affecting your hotel and the wildlife? Have read that nomadic herders from farther north are coming to Laikipia and are armed and have been violent. How close have these nomadic herders been to your hotel? Have you had any issues? Any changes to your security as a result of concern? Any future concern particularly with August election?

          We are looking at doing a safari here next year and will be traveling with our daughter who will be about 30 months old at the time - and I am just a little worried about the open rooms and her sense of adventure. Have other families who have young children like our daughter do fine with the open rooms?
