The Amboseli Safari passes through classic African big game country beneath snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro, which towers a breathtaking 15,000 ft. above the surrounding plains. Amboseli National Park and the nearby areas hold some of Africa’s most abundant wildlife and, among many other kinds of wildlife, you will see huge herds of zebra and wildebeest, many types of antelope, lion and elephant.
The ride is fast paced at times and there are some good opportunities for gallops on dry lake beds and other places which provide excellent footing for the horses. This is Masai country and you will see the colorful tribesmen from time to time herding their livestock across the grasslands on the watch for marauding lion or leopard.
Camps are very comfortable and service is excellent. The skilled cooks provide tasty meals which you will greatly appreciate after a day in the saddle. There is a broad selection of responsive, sure-footed horses, and those who wish can take them jumping over logs and brush when the opportunity presents itself. Knowledgeable and friendly guides help make this a marvelous introduction to the best of Africa.
