 GLOBETROTTING IN THE MAASAI MARA, KENYA

This seven-night horse-riding safari explores some of Africa’s best big game country from the rolling Loita Hills to the immense Maasai Mara, voted Africa’s leading national reserve. The panoramas are quintessential to Kenya where acacia trees mushroom from the ground, giraffes elegantly lope across the earth, young Maasai herders wrapped in bright, coloured shukas keep a watchful eye on their cattle and the horizon is dotted with herds of wildebeest, zebra, topi and eland. It’s a honey-pot for big game which amps the adrenalin up a notch. Swimming your horse across the Mara River is a true highlight of the ride.

Horses are well schooled thoroughbred and thoroughbred cross. Many of the horses are home bred and have all tried polo. The horses are responsive, extremely fit and tough.

PAYMENT OPTIONS

Accepted payment is by credit card only. There is a 2% surcharge on all credit card payments. Since you’ll be paying in a foreign currency, in this case USD, we believe paying via credit card is the most cost effective and easiest option for you.

Why is the price quoted in US dollars?

With our overseas riding destinations (rides other than in Australia), the currency is dictated by our partner in that country. Therefore due to fluctuating exchange rates we have to quote in the same currency.

TRANSFER INFORMATION

We encourage guests to arrive in Nairobi at least two nights prior to your ride beginning to enjoy one full day of sightseeing in this city. When arriving in Nairobi, Globetrotting can arrange a pick up with a driver from Macushla House at an extra cost.

Transfers to and from Nairobi regional airport (to the Maasai Mara) are included in your ride price on the first and last day of your ride. Please note, regional flights have a luggage allowance of 15kg maximum.
