Interact with the Masai on this horseback riding safari in Kenya

Masai Mara Safari

Ride Overview

This is the land which was so loved by Ernest Hemingway and Karen Blixen. How fortunate for us that it remains much as it was in their day. The Masai are still there, herding their cattle, and living as they did in past centuries. Their fierce pride and strong culture survive. So do the wild animals in almost the same abundance as amazed the early explorers.

Riding through the country on horses, we breathe the dust, gallop after the zebra which cut our path, share our camp with the Masai and are part of age-old Africa. Our route avoids the clamor of tourist vans, roads and lodges. You are totally cut off from the noise of the modern world and life takes on the more gracious rhythms of a bygone era.

This archetypal riding safari has been one of our most popular for 30 years.
