A Horseback Safari in Kenya

The only person I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa – for he has so much to look forward to

An ADRENALINE-FUELLED adventure in the heart of Kenya's wilderness

If you want an action-packed experience, which involves riding out on the horses from dusk to dawn,  horseback safari in Kenya is it.

Kenya had it all, the majestic plains of rainbow sunsets and beautiful savannahs. This was the perfect location for this adventure.

Our Guide and Masai spotter gave us unparalleled opportunities to see the game. For instance, his unique knowledge led us to secluded spots to spy on cheetahs, elephants, lions, giraffes and rhinos. As they roamed the Kenyan plains.

The first part of the safari was riding across the Masai Mara for ten days. We were staying in the most unique and secluded spots on the plain.  Giving us unforgettable moments across the way.

We were always ready for the excitement of the game. This meant dropping everything to ride out to find cheetahs and her cubs hiding in the tall grasslands.

Moments of magic seemed to happen with each ride. Galloping with the giraffes as they chanter along the open wilderness. To up close and personal with a lion as she rested in the bush.

The community is what keeps Kenya as the majesty of the animal kingdom. We were treated throughout by the Masai community. Giving us a tour of their village and a Masai evening dance.

Finishing the first of the safaris in the Mara we left happy. Safe in the knowledge we were contributing to a beautiful conservancy, as well as the local Masai community. We had seen unbelievable game throughout, and some moments which will stay with the group for a lifetime.

The second part of the riding safari took place in the stunning Laikipia. Another ten-day adventure over beautiful terrain watching the game as we ventured through.

Camping on the escarpment our camp had the stunning sculpted peaks surrounding Mount Kenya on the horizon. We woke up with the crimson sunrise associated with Africa each morning.

We were riding through the rugged bush encountering herds of Elephants roaming majestically through the terrain and Cheetahs hunting for Thomson Gazelle.

The two safaris gave a unique insight into the different areas around Kenya. The various communities that protect the wildlife and landscape.

We left having a better understanding of the sustainability of the areas and how they can be protected for the future generations. But we left believing that we had witnessed something special over the three weeks on this Horseback Safari.



We were waking up to Hippos playing in the water outside our tent.

Getting dress up to join in with the Masai Wedding and dance late into the night with the tribe.

Dropping everything in the evenings to watch the Lions hunt together and catch their prey.

Able to get up close and personal with the horses, we were ready to jump on any opportunity that arose—spontaneous, unscripted adventure.

We watched Kenya’s most iconic species in their habitat and contributed to their vital conservation.
