After leaving Olare Lamun you will have embarked on the longest ride of the trip to get to your next mobile camp, Olare Orok. During your ride in-between camps you will have fantastic opportunities to get close to some of the amazing animals that the Mara has to offer such as herds of zebra, giraffe, topi and even chances of seeing some elephant and buffalo. Olare Orok is on the edge of the Masai Mara Game reserve and from this camp you may even hear hyena and lion vocalisations at night.
The following day will allow for a full day of morning and afternoon rides with the option of driving into the park for some fantastic wildlife photographic opportunities.
The tents used on mobile safaris are spacious 10ft by 9ft tents with twin camp beds, mattresses, sheet and blankets. Towels, soap and torches are provided and there is a gas lamp and hurricane lamp in each tent. In addition, each tent has a private long drop toilet and bucket showers are always available
Offbeat Riding Safaris are not suitable for children due to the fast nature of the activity posing a potential hazard to their safety.
Horses, camping equipment and tack are all provided, but we recommend that you bring your own riding helmet and boots. All the safaris are led by experienced guides who will adapt to the needs of each guest.
Location & Directions
Maasai Mara, Kenya
Offbeat Riding Safaris cover a range of locations from the Maasai Mara in the south of Kenya to Laikipia in the north and can also incorporate Amboseli National Park.
When to go
Offbeat Riding Safaris don't take place in April, May or November. The tourist season is in January and February, when the weather is hottest and driest. At this time, the animals in the wildlife parks tend to congregate more around the watercourses, making them easier to spot.
Northern and eastern Kenya temperatures vary from highs of up to 40°C during the day to less than 20°C at night. Rainfall in this area is sparse and, when it does occur, is often in the form of violent storms. July is usually the driest month, and November the wettest.
