Riding Safaris
in Kenya

Ride into the wilderness of Kenya to see its spectacular wildlife up close


About Kenya Riding Safaris

As the birthplace of the African horse safari, Kenya offers unparalleled opportunities for horse riding.

The country boasts a huge variety of safari experiences; from luxury high-end lodge-stays, to fly-camping and nights spent dining and sleeping under the stars. 

It is possible to ride amongst the world famous Great Migration in the Mara Conservation area – herds of wildebeest and zebra with their ever present predators in attendance.  Alternatively head to the Laikipia Plateau, private ranch-land crawling with wildlife where the sense of freedom is palpable. Other options include the Chyulu Hills in the shadow of Kilimanjaro or to trek on horseback around Mount Kenya.

Riders and non-riders, families, couples, groups and solo adventurers alike, there is something for everyone in Kenya. Intermediate riders and families can head for more open country where the chance of coming across a predator unexpectedly is less likely.

Kenya has a complicated and rather unpredictable weather pattern; as a general rule January to March is hot and dry; April to June is hot and wet (“the long rains”). July to October is very warm and dry, then comes the “short rains” from November into December which are warm and wet.

At high altitudes rain can fall at any time of year. Temperatures are determined largely by altitude – you can reckon on a drop of 6C for every 1,000m you climb above sea level.

July and August are possibly the best months overall for game-viewing, although if you have a specific quarry in mind, for instance Wild Dog, you may want to look at a time they are likely to have finished denning and the young are starting to hunt (November and December have been terrific for this on Laikipia in recent years).

In the far desert north of the country, temperatures year round seldom dip below 35C so a spot of rain can be very welcome indeed in terms of taking the edge off the heat.
