Jay McLeod

How long have you been a host/hostess?
8 years

Where are you a host/hostess?
Laragai House, Borana Ranch

Where were you born?
Nairobi, Kenya

What have you done before becoming a host/hostess?
Studied business management in Capetown, managed a wheat farm and built my mother a house.

What is your favourite spot to see wildlife?
Depending on the time of year and the animals that you are after. The Western corner of the ranch is very good for plains game. If one is looking for cats then the hilly areas of the ranch are better.

What is your most memorable hosting moment and why?
Guiding all the models for the Jules fashion shoot for a week - I don’t think I need to say why. Or being charged by a cow Elephant with three guests in the moonlight.

What is the best part of your job and why?
The diverse personalities that come through interest me the most as they always have exciting conversation and something to remember.

If you could tell your guests one thing about your property, what would it be?
Its commitment to the environment and all the ways that we are trying to improve in this area from eco friendly home made soap to solar power and efforts made to the community through the mobile clinic and the education support programs.

What is the one thing your guests may not know about being a host/hostess?
The more enthusiastic and interactive the guest is the more enjoyable their stay will be.

Come to Laragai to meet Jay and the rest of his team.
