Itinerary Description:

Begin in Nairobi, Africa's fourth largest city and a vibrant place city known for its cafe culture, unbridled nightlife, and the world's only urban game reserve. During your evening in Nairobi, you will stay at The Emakoko, the perfect place to relax, unwind, and take in the wild before beginning your horseback riding safari.

Continue to Chyulu Hills National Park and your luxurious accommodations at ol Donyo Lodge, a spectacular property situated on 275,000 acres of wild African lands with the beautiful Mt. Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. Upon arrival, you will meet your horses and guides in ol Donyo's stables. You will have a few opportunities to get acquainted with your horse and the local ecosystem of thick acacia forests and the vast savannah full of giraffe, impala, elephant, warthog, and gazelle before venturing on your three-day Kenya riding safari into Chyulu Hills. Days are spent exploring craters and underground lava tubes and cantering through the Chyulu Hills' legendary mist forests in pursuit of the buffalo, leopard, syke’s monkey, and giant forest hog that reside within it. After your days of horseback riding safari and exploration, return each night to the ol Donyo Fly Camp, a secluded and comfortable campsite nestled next to a large volcanic crater, an ideal spot to take in the area's gorgeous sunsets and enjoy bush stories around evening campfires.

Say farewell to your horses as you depart for the Masai Mara Game Reserve for extensive game drives, balloon safaris, local village visits, and unrivaled access to a superior wildlife habitat. You will frequently want to stop for delicious picnic-style lunches, prepared by the camp’s chefs using fresh local ingredients. Head over to the nearby fire pit in the evenings to laugh, relax, share stories, and watch the sun set over the captivating Masai Mara.
