    1. Day 1 Nairobi - Olepangi Farm

      Arrive by road to Olepangi Farm, driving through the beautiful Kikuyu Highlands, arriving in time for a hearty lunch. After lunch beneath the shade of an impressive fig tree we will go out on an orientation ride to match all riders with their horses for the safari. In the evening we will set up a telescope to view the magical African sky with hot chocolates around our fire pit.

    2. Day 2 Olepangi Farm

      Early risers can watch the sunrise over the mountain. We’ll ride out from our farm after breakfast to Loldaiga Hills Ranch, often referred to as the most beautiful ranch in all of Kenya. It is a great privilege that we have use of this private ranch for it is a wonder to behold. We’ll take our time enjoying the scenery and wildlife along the way. We’ll have a good chance of seeing elephant, giraffe, buffalo and, with luck, many other species. We’ll arrive in time for a late lunch followed by an evening game drive to our phenomenal sundowner spot.

    3. Day 3 Olepangi Farm

      Wake up to a cup of tea or coffee in bed, followed by a light breakfast of toast and muesli. We’ll then head off into a different direction enjoying the quiet and tranquility of this 49,000 acre private game reserve. Depending on the season this may involve some cantering through the open plains or pushing-on through seas of tall grass following giraffe, zebra, antelope, elephant, buffalo; whatever's out there. We will break for a bush lunch in a shady spot giving both riders and horses plenty of time to relax. There’s always some wine on offer to encourage a little nap before our afternoon ride back to base. The afternoon ride is deliberately slower-paced and it's a good opportunity to ask questions and take photographs. The bird-life is some of the best in the world and towards sunset there is often elephant interaction to enjoy. We will return to camp and go out on an evening drive to see what is around before dark.

    4. Day 4 Olepangi Farm

      This morning we will get onto the horses at first light to make the most of the cool air and greater game activity. We will stop for a break after about two hours riding for a bit of a re-fuel before making our way back to camp in time for showers and a chance to relax before lunch. This afternoon we will explore on foot, going down to the eastern part of the ranch where caves with ancient rock art can be found. Sundowners will be ready after the walk returning to camp for dinner and stories around the campfire.

    5. Day 5 Olepangi Farm

      For your last ride we're going to take you through different country, making our way through clouds of grass to plains dotted with cedar trees. While passing through woodlands, there's a possibility of finding big game again. Our pace may increase as we break out onto the plains; perhaps disturbing troops of baboons or cantering alongside giraffes or cape buffalo. Back at Olepangi Farm, there's time to shower before lunch. Spend the afternoon relaxing with a book or take us up on a game of croquet

    6. Day 6 Departure

      Today you can enjoy a lie in and a relaxed final breakfast before your onward journey. Depending on your flight time you are welcome to join us for an extra lunch and enjoy the farm until you leave.
