Further there are safaris to different destinations where we accommodate guests in a comfortable fly-camp, e.g. our Kilimanjaro Big Game Trail. Between the highest point in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru we explore the West Kilimanjaro Wilderness, encountering amongst others elephants, buffalo, zebra, giraffe and lots of different antelope. This is a mobile tented safari for 2-6 experienced riders at a time, making it a very personal experience.
We, your hosts, are both veterinarians and ensure the condition of the horses. Even in the challenging circumstances in the bush the condition of the horses is superb, they are very well trained, fit and surefooted. Rides are at all paces where the terrain permits. The horses are Warm blood, some Arab and Thoroughbred and X, all ridden with bitless tack in a loose rein and relaxed style. There are quality and very comfortable treeless and trail saddles available.
We tailor your horseback safari according to your schedule and requirements from 3 to 11 days. For each tour we offer an alternative program for non-riders, so nobody needs to stay behind.
On Safari: Occassionally an early morning ride, usually breakfast at 7 a.m., afterwards start for a 3 - 4 hours ride. Our support vehicle brings lunch to a scenic point where we have picnic. After an extended lunch break another 2 - 3 hours ride to the evening destination, where our crew already set the camp.
