Kilimanjaro Big Game Trail
Tanzania Tanzania

Follow in Hemingway’s footsteps...

Come ride with us over the western game corridor of Mt. Kilimanjaro and enjoy the diverse flora and fauna, from the mountain forests to the savannah in the West, where the wildlife roams freely, just as they have for thousands of years. With the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro rising to your East and Mt. Meru to the West, Tanzania is a country famous for its plentiful wildlife and fantastic scenery - for good reason! Here is where you will find the greatest concentration of wild animals left anywhere in the world, extremes of climates unknown in the western world, and people with cultural backgrounds so distinct from your own that you are forced to question all your previous beliefs and  way of life. This is wild Tanzania and here is your opportunity for the exploration of a life time from the back of a horse! This safari is designed for experienced riders and offers breathtaking views, exhilarating canters and close contact with wildlife such as elephant, zebra, eland, wildebeest - to name but a few.

Exploring on horseback is the perfect way to experience the real African Bush! Enjoy 24 hour days in the wilderness; listen to the voices of the animals from around the camp fire and as you drift off to sleep at night! Our aim is to offer our guests an intimate experience with nature, affording them the very best that East Africa has to offer on safari. Our trips are highly personalized, very much ‘off the beaten track’ and away from any human settlements that disrupt the natural environment. You will be accompanied on all rides and activities by your hosts ensuring that your riding holiday will be a truly memorable one. Your hosts are both veterinarians and ensure first class condition of the horses, even in the challenging circumstances of the bush!

A shorter 4 day/ 3 night Safari option is available throughout the year on request with 2+ riders, which can be combined with extra days at the farm. Game viewing is possible even if you are on a tight schedule. If you are an experienced rider, we invite you to join us for an unforgettable adventure. As we ride through the African bush, far away from roads and other tourists, we share the pristine habitat with elephants, wildebeests, giraffes, gazelles, and more.
