About Offbeat Riding
Offbeat Riding Safaris have been operating since 1990 and have a stellar reputation for providing un-rivaled 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, Laikipia and Amboseli, choosing the best routes over 5-10 days. With a mobile tented camp that moves with us, this is the epitome of what a true 'safari' is all about.
Each tent has a comfortable camp bed with a mattress, sheet and blanket, as well as a gas lamp and hurricane lamp. Towel, soap and torches are also provided. There is a loo tent for each double and hot showers are also available. Meals are prepared daily by chefs who are able to produce delicious, fresh food in the wilderness
With outstanding game viewing from horseback and superb riding country, the Mara exceeds all expectations. This is undoubtedly our most popular riding safari, especially for first timers to Kenya.
These are true wilderness safaris, riding across 1 million acres of private game and ranch land. With all of the 'Big Five' and dramatic scenery, Laikipia offers an almost pioneering experience with very low tourist numbers.
With the stunning backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro and its famous herds of elephant, Amboseli and the Chyulu Hills offer beautiful riding country that is hard to rival. we offer a set departure in June but can do tailor made rides at any time of year.
