Horseback Safari Special
Kenya in November
Kenya is the land of safaris. A Kenya Safari: Wide steppes and savannahs invite you to admire the animals of East Africa - including the Big Five - in their natural habitat. A Kenya safari can be perfectly combined with a relaxing stay on the Indian Ocean with long sandy beaches and crystal clear water.
Interested but your travel buddy is not a horse-fan?
Interested in traveling with someone who isn't as fond of the big hairy mounts as you are? No problem, you go horseback riding and your travel partner explores the area in a different way that you want. Just ask us about the corresponding price.

LAIKIPIA PLAINS: This spectacular region is considered the gateway to Kenya's wild Northern frontier country. Wild and sparsely populated, much of Laikipia is covered by large privately owned ranches. The diversity of large mammals is higher than in any other part of Kenya and Laikipia is host to the highest populations of endangered species including black rhino, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Lelwel hartebeest and the rare wild dog. Many things differentiate Laikipia from the rest of Kenya, but possibly the most significant is how people from different cultures and backgrounds have come together to support and undertake conservation through their own organization, the Laikipia Wildlife Forum (LWF).
