The Mara Riding Safari

If you are a rider, there is simply no better way to see Kenya than from the back of a well-schooled horse.

The ride will take you across the Masai Mara, accompanied by a traditional mobile tented safari camp with support vehicles and Land Rovers. This is the epitome of what a true ‘safari’ is all about. Game is plentiful in all the areas that we ride and your guide is highly knowledgeable and conversant with the habits and likely reactions of the wildlife.

“We rode out first thing on a gorgeous chestnut mare as the sun was rising and saw lots of zebras, kudu, warthog and giraffe, you can get so close to the wildlife, we did a 2 hour loop crossing small streams and riding through varied countryside with king fishers, martial eagles and bea eaters overhead … we head back to camp for a full breakfast of fresh fruit, home made breads, poached eggs and bacon, we are in total luxury with every detail thought of and cared for.”

“After sundowners by the camp fire, Netty the local guide asks us to get in the vehicles to try and track a leopard on a night hunt… we are in luck and track him for an hour, this is incredible to see.  We also spot hyena, hippo and a rare sighting of an ard wolf.  We head back to camp for a 3 course dinner.  A dream day!”

Riding up close to elephant, lion and buffalo, or cantering with wildebeest and zebra is exhilarating and one of the ultimate wildlife experiences.

The availability of protective headwear can vary from what you are used to at home and although we have high-quality, 3 strap EU approved hard hats we strongly advise that you bring your own as we cannot guarantee that it will be to the same standard as those available in your home country.
