Feedback for 'Maasai Mara, Kenya' Ride

Meet a Globetrotter: Allanah Powell

Allanah Powell

‘Words cannot express the satisfaction and happiness we achieved on our Maasai Mara ride. My Husband Ian and I were worried we would not be able to get horse fit for this ride. We expected we would have a day or two in the safari vehicles, but we had not a single one! Our guide, Simon, had our trusty steeds matched perfectly. Bardamat and Trevor (our steeds) where forward moving, steadfast, and had us relaxed throughout our seven days. We never once felt unsafe in the Mara. Each day was jam packed with two or three rides, and a total of 200kms across the Mara. The camp staff catered to our every need with plentiful hot showers at the end of a big day in the saddle and even hot water bottles to easy any aches away. The food was beyond fabulous. Brioche, croissants and pastries from our camp oven, handmade ravioli, fillet of beef, and unbelievable salads to mention only a few. Five star meals again and again. Galloping alongside zebra and giraffe, up close to cheetah and lion, seeing spectacular bird life and camping on the riverbank hearing the hippos at night made this ride exceed all expectations – not to mention the friends made at camp. Thank you, Globetrotting, for a trip full of lifetime memories.’

‘The Maasai Mara safari was a lifetime highlight for me. The feeling of cantering along vast open plains amidst a myriad of wildlife with like-minded riders and phenomenally impressive guides  is out of this world. Simon and Megan were fantastic. Their knowledge was seemingly endless and they communicated it in a warm style. Everything food and accommodation wise was taken care of and I felt truly spoilt on this trip. The horses were fit, healthy and fun to ride. You can see they love to get out in the open spaces on safari. The scenery was spectacular and straight from Out of Africa! I am lucky to have been able to go on such an exhilarating experience. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. The pictures don’t do it justice – but my memories do.’

‘The Maasai Mara ride was beyond my wildest dreams. It’s impossible to describe how incredible the experience was, and I’ll never forget cantering alongside a herd of giraffe, feeling one with the group.
At times an adrenaline rush and at others simply joyous, and often achingly hilarious. My horse, the beautiful Pauline, was a true gem – so fit, surefooted, gentle-natured, responsive and calm amidst the chance of a charging elephant or buffalo. Our host, Imogen Voorspuy, and guide, Simon Kenyon, were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and every single thing imaginable was covered: hot water bottles, drinks and nibbles before an amazing two-course dinner, endless kindness and generosity, and laughs and thrills too. They worked non-stop and we all adored them.
Thank you so much, Globetrotting, for making this trip possible. Everything went smoothly, for which I’m very grateful.’

“We hit the jackpot with galloping with the wildebeest migration as that rarely happens apparently, but standing/walking so close to lions I would have never thought was possible. It was like a dream.”
