Riding amongst Africa’s animals is an active, exhilarating and adrenalin fuelled safari. Experiencing this spectacular unfenced and expansive wilderness eco-system on the back of a horse is a journey like no other and one you will never ever forget. The riding safari is escorted by horseman John Williams and hosted by Gordie Church and Felicia Collie of Safaris Unlimited, one of Kenya’s leading family run safari outfitters, who not only run riding safaris but also offer traditional mobile tented safaris all over Kenya. Gordie’s father, Tony Church, started the original riding safari concept in Kenya and between the two of them, they offer authentic, unique and unforgettable safaris that not only have heritage but deliver a safari experience which are all class, full of punch and seriously stylish.

The eight night riding safaris traverse the greater Mara Conservancies (which are adjacent to the Masai Mara), namely Ol Kinyei, Naboisho, Olare Orak, Motogori, Mara North & the Mara Triangle. This Mara wilderness is an extension of the Serengeti Ecosystem and is considered Kenya's best wildlife sanctuary, where animals can still be seen in vast numbers. The beauty of this wilderness is that is has come to represent the epitome of East Africa. The landscape is one if rolling savannah and acacia woodland, intersected by dark green veins if riverine forest in the banks of the Mara and Olare Orak Rivers. The Mara is also home to the colourful and handsome Masai people who, with their herds of livestock are synonymous with the region.
