Horse riding safari

ur stable is home to over twenty-five safari horses – a mixture of Somali-Arab crossbred and thoroughbreds. The majority of these have been bred and raised at home on our wildlife ranch in central Kenya. Living at close quarters with wild animals, our horses are familiar with being amongst big game, have great endurance and are evenly tempered.

Under the professional guidance of Felicia Church and her team of grooms, each safari horse is carefully schooled, exercised and loved, for the sole purpose of carrying our guests safely through the African wilderness.

We ride in the English style using very comfortable French cavalry and English general–purpose saddles. Each riding safari is personally guided by Gordie, with Felicia on hand to assist with the horses.

We ride between 4 – 8 hours, covering 20 – 40 kilometres per day. Full days of riding when we move camp are alternated with days where we ride out of camp and return for lunch and a siesta in the afternoon.

Our weight limit is 90 kgs (or by prior arrangement).

Riding groups of 2 – 12 guests may be arranged.

All riders must be confident at all paces, of intermediate level of fitness and riding ability, and have with them a sense of adventure. We are unable to accept beginners.

" This is the most unbelievable trip I have ever been on. Since I have never been to Africa or on a horse riding vacation, I didn’t really know what to expect but this trip has been beyond anything I had dreamed of. Everything has been top notch from the horses, to the food, the camping facilities, and the staff and of course Gordie… Gordie is an unbelievable spotter, I have seen more animals during this trip and learned so much about them. He knew exactly where to find them and how close we should go without putting us in danger. I felt right at home from the minute the trip started. I am sure that the reason Gordie has such a great team is because he is such an enjoyable person to be around. "
