A safari in East Africa is about exploring the world-renowned wildlife, landscape and rich cultures of the numerous tribes that inhabit the countries. It’s the breath-taking herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles for as far as the eye can see, the graceful giraffes and mighty elephant herds. It’s the elusive leopard, the sleek and swift cheetah and the magnificent lion. The colorful and fierce Maasai or the quiet Hadzabe bushmen still living as they have throughout their long history. All in the shadow of the majestic snow capped Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Now imagine doing your safari on horseback…galloping in the middle of herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. Close enough to hear their snorts and thundering hooves. Or extremely close encounters with elephants, lions or other big game because the animals are not as afraid of a horse as they are a safari vehicle.
Horseback riding safaris offer adventurers a unique and authentic way to explore. You will have the opportunity to get closer to the wildlife and interact with the native people of Tanzania and Kenya in remote areas unspoiled by frequent tourist.
Riders can explore parts of the Serengeti, Masai Mara, Laikipia, Amboseli, the lesser known West Kilimanjaro area which is part of the Amboseli / Ngasurai Basin eco-system and offers spectacular landscapes with magnificent views of Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru, Ol Doinyo Longido and Ol Doinyo Orok, or other migratory areas that are home to some of the best wildlife conservations in the country.
The trips can range from day rides returning to camp each evening to multi-day trips camping out in the bush or riding from camp to camp. Those not wishing to ride can come too, as some of the trips offer game viewing vehicles for the non-riders. You can join set departures or create your own itinerary and your own departure dates.
