Riding Safaris in Tanzania
Tanzania boasts such highlights as Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti,
Ngorongoro Crater and the spice islands of Zanzibar making
it an unforgettable safari and horse riding holiday location. Recognized
world-wide for its wildlife and natural beauty, Tanzania is a wildlife
tour location of extreme importance. For many Tanzania has been
the ultimate safari destination, with national parks and game reserves
covering some 33,660 sq km (or 28%) of the country.
Tanzania has considerable wildlife habitat, including much of
the Serengeti plain, where the white-bearded wildebeest and other
bovids participate in a large-scale annual migration. Up to 250,000
wildebeest perish each year in the long and arduous movement to
find forage in the dry season. Tanzania is also home to 130 amphibian
and over 275 reptile species, many of them strictly endemic and
included in the IUCN Red Lists of different countries.
We offer six amazing horse riding safaris in Tanzania
each promising an unforgettable riding and wilderness experience:
A unique horseback safari is our Singita Riding
Safari Deluxe, based on the western corridor of the Serengeti.
It's well known as the most exclusive mobile horse safari worldwide.
On the Kilimanjaro Big Game Trail you will
have the opportunity to live your Out of Africa dream
trip riding in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro, while elephant,
zebra and wildebeest graze nearby. Another fantastci horse safari
is the South-West Kilimanjaro Horse Safari
8 or 10 days. For very experianced riders, who love long hours in
the saddle and fast canters, we can highly recommend the Migration
Horse Safari. The Migration Riding Safari is a once in a lifetime
opportunity to view the great Wildebeest migration the largest
movement of land animals on earth. Spectacular as well is our new
riding safari in the Arusha National Park
where you are following the tracks of Margarete Trappe.
The Arusha National Park has a dense vegetation and hosts great
numbers of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wart hog, different types of
antelope, hippo, several primate species including the black &
white colobus monkey, flamingo and numerous birds. Elephant are
also found here and we will use their paths during our riding safari.
Arusha National Park encompasses Mt. Meru which is the 2nd highest
mountain in Tanzania. There are dramatic variations in scenery:
open savannah, dense forest and thick bush, impressive craters and
many lakes. Furthermore there are 5 distinct vegetation zones which
host a wealth of flora and fauna. For the first time in the history
of Tanzania´s National Parks TANAPA has given us exclusive
access to take riding safaris within the park boundaries.
With out Tanzania horse riding vacations you also have the opportunity
to add on a Northern Discovery Tour. This extension allows you to
stay in a private safari lodge, and go on day excursions to the
Serengeti, Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crate. Additional activities
like Serengeti Balloon Rides are also available.
Riding Safaris in Kenya
Kenya is a country of breathtaking beauty and contrast, from
palm fringed coral beaches through open savannahs, lakes and deserts
to the lush highlands, forests and snow covered volcanic mountains
astride the Equator. Kenya is split by earths greatest chasm,
the Rift Valley, offering some of the most fantastic views on earth.
Hidden Trails have some pioneering horse riding safaris available
in Kenya. These fantastic holidays combine excellent horse riding
with some amazing safari and wildlife experiences, in the Masai
Mara and Mount Kenya.
On horseback you are on even terms with the wild game what
a thrill! These are the most unique and exciting safaris in East
Africa. You have the opportunity to ride from the lodge to excellent
wildlife viewing areas, where elephants, zebra, giraffe and antelope
roam freely. Visits to local villages, to meet the tribes people
of the area, are also included.
Some of our safaris combine a landrover photographic holiday with
a section on horseback. They provide an even balance between traveling
by car and some real outdoor bundu (bush) bashing in
the saddle. On most safaris you can expect to see the Big Five and
at least 30 different mammal species.
Our partners emphasize the ethos of eco-tourism.
