Itinerary Description:

Begin your journey at the Offbeat Safaris Mara River Camp in the Masai Mara, one of the most famous safaris destinations in the world. Your horseback safari begins today with an evening ride. Keep your eyes open for herds of plains game like zebra, topi, giraffe, and gazelle. You may even see elephant, buffalo, and lion. The views throughout your journey are stunning, so be sure to keep your camera handy.

The next day, mount your horse for your ride to the next camp. For the next seven nights, you'll be staying in a luxury mobile tented camp in three different areas of the Masai Mara. On days the camp moves from one location to another, you'll ride between camps, enjoying fresh picnic lunches on the plains while you break from riding. On other days you'll explore the Masai Mara by horseback, on game drives in Land Rovers, or on foot.

Conclude your journey at Deloraine House in the Great Rift Valley. It's home to about 80 horses that are used for the Masai Mara horseback safari and you'll have a chance to visit the stables. Optional day trips to Lake Nakuru National Park and Lake Bogoria to see the famous flamingos, rhino, and greater kudu are also available during your stay. Take a final horse ride on the farm or nearby mountains for spectacular views of the Rift Valley before you bid Kenya farewell.
