Horse Riding Safaris in Masai Mara

Horse Riding Safaris in Masai Mara

What To Do In Masai Mara National Reserve

One of the most exhilarating experiences on Safari is to explore the raw wilderness of Africa on horseback, compared to the usual game drives on 4×4 safari van, this activity allows you to explore the depth of the park on a horse back.

During this activity, you are able to get closer and view the animals at a closer range. Riding through the Zebras and watching them get scared to see a human o top of an animal is such a unique and exciting experience. Riding along the trails and extended regions of Masai Mara Game reserve are rich in wildlife and the thrill of being close to magnificent animals while on horseback is a special attraction.
While on the ride you will be listening to the beat of the bush and its silence, where you can hear the earth breathing beneath your horses’ hooves and a night sky lit with the cool intent of a billion stars. Allow your horse to connect you to the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and coiled labyrinth of wilderness whilst exploring the transitory home of millions of traditional migrants on their annual visit and some permanent residents.
