TANZANIA Why Go There?
Riding safaris in Tanzania take you off the beaten track and back in time. Tanzania is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ngorongoro crater, Amboseli and the Serengeti as well as bordering the world-famous Maasai Mara. The migrating herds head from Kenya through Tanzania offering superb game viewing opportunities on horseback. Mobile horse riding safaris in traditional tents offer the chance to interact with local tribes as you ride past their homes and cattle corals en-route to the game-rich areas.

Choosing a safari
Horse riding safaris often follow a similar pattern. You are woken early in the morning so that you can be onboard your horse at dawn and riding as the animals are most active. You will normally ride for 3-4 hours in the morning, following game tracks in search of the Big Five and other species. Lunch is taken in a shady spot where a short siesta is possible before being woken again for tea. The afternoon rides set out as it starts to get cooler so that you can appreciate the beautiful afternoon light and watch the bush come to life, before returning to camp before night falls. Typically the morning rides are faster and adrenaline-fuelled, whilst the afternoon rides are perfect for photographs.
A riding safari in Tanzania is also an immersion into Masai culture as you ride through their villages and interact with the warriors.
For an exhilarating riding safari for experienced riders only, with plenty of fast riding and the possibility of jumping, choose the Enduimet Wildlife Corridor ride.
If your time is short but you are still an experienced rider, choose the Amboseli ride.
The Kaskazi ride is perfect for families or groups of mixed abilities as camp is in an area with little dangerous game.
For a truly unique experience, join the Lake Natron ride and marvel at the vast numbers of flamingoes in this remote area of the Rift Valley.
