As cofounder of Epic Road, Lakin aims to marry bespoke journeys with on-the-ground philanthropy. His safaris might include distributing solar-powered lights and mosquito nets in a local village or teaming up with a conservation team to tag and track rhinos. Lakin, an accomplished photographer, also sits on the board of directors of the Bodhi Tree Foundation and Goods for Good.
Insider Clout: Thanks to his personal relationships with leaders from remote tribal communities, Lakin can arrange for clients to witness a Hamar bull-jumping ceremony in Ethiopia or Tanzania’s Hadza tribe on a bow-and-arrow hunt.
