Horseback Riding in Tanzania

This politically stable country has long been renowned for its vast herds of plains game as well as for its awe inspiring scenery. You will be horseback riding through lands traditionally used by the Masai who regard the game as God’s cattle and have preserved it to some extent. Mt. Kilimanjaro provides a dramatic backdrop for two of the rides. Remote, enigmatic Lake Natron, surrounded by the cones and craters of the Rift Valley, is an appealing destination for those who seek the trail less traveled. In order to truly appreciate this diverse country extending your stay after the ride and exploring the magnificent game country or historic coast or worthwhile options.

Guest Reflections

"My horse had a good strong walk, was comfortable and fit: perfect. Long gallops were a blast. While camping, the Milky way overhead was a halo on our piece of heaven. I wouldn't change a single moment of our adventure."

George Richardson, 2014
