Suguroi is here today because of three strokes of luck. It all began with a fly-by that was never supposed to happen. On the morning of 23rd September 2021, visitors were exploring Laikipia by air when they spontaneously decided to divert from their planned course over El Karama Ranch. Flying over a lugga, they unexpectedly sighted a carcass of a female elephant.
