Offbeat Riding Safaris

You have not experienced the Maasai Mara of you haven't experienced it from the back of a horse. Reconnect with the ancient synergy as you cross the entire Mara ecosystem on horseback, criss-crossing one of the most exciting ecosystems on the planet.

Offbeat Riding Safaris have been operating since 1990 and have a stellar reputation for providing unrivaled mobile horseback safaris amongst big game. Riding up close to elephant, lion and buffalo, or galloping with wildebeest and zebra are life changing experiences. If you are a rider, there is simply no better way to see Kenya than from the back of a well schooled and fit horse. We ride across the Masai Mara, Amboseli, and Laikipia, choosing the best routes. With a traditional mobile tented safari camp that moves with us, supported by a lorry and Land Rovers, this is the epitome of what a true 'safari' is all about. Wildlife is plentiful in all the areas that we ride and your guide is highly knowledgeable and conversant with the habits and likely reactions of the wildlife.
Crossing the Mara river on horseback is, to put it simply, an out of this world surreal experience.
