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 great 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. The iconic Serengeti ecosystem is renowned for the annual migration of 800,000 wildebeest and 500,000 zebra with their attendant predators. In order to truly appreciate this diverse country, extending your stay after the ride and exploring the magnificent game country or historic coast are worthwhile options.
Another easily arranged extension to your riding safari in Tanzania is gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda.
