Tanzania plays host to incredible horse riding experiences. This is a country of huge diversity, with landscapes of forested mountains and flat plains where the game roams freely. Ride to the dramatic backdrop of stunning Mt Kilimanjaro, its forested flanks rising up to the iconic snow-capped summit. Take advantage of a magnificent horseback safari in world famous national park The Serengeti (known locally as ‘Siringitu’ – the place where the land runs on forever). Fast riding over endless plains with an array of wildlife including big cats, elephants, and herds of wildebeest during the great migration.
Experienced riders can stay in opulent tented camps and fantastic lodges on adventurous mobile safaris. Whilst families and less experienced riders can enjoy luxury resorts with day rides and vehicular safari. Explore the remote areas of the Singita Grumeti Reserve and ride up close to giraffe and zebra. Discover the Arusha National Park, riding through cool rainforests, along moss and fern fringed pathways. Pause in the saddle seeking out hippo, black rhino, flamingo, elephant and lion, in the rich, fertile Ngorongoro Crater, home to the densest concentration of wildlife in Africa. Alternatively, immerse yourself in the languid delights of sea-breeze canters on the soft white sands of Tanzania's Indian Ocean coastline, where relaxing rides take you past enchanting islands and through sleepy Swahili villages. Tanzania is a recipe of colourful red-cloaked Maasai warriors, fascinating culture, ancient ruins, and exotic beaches and of course, world class riding safaris.
