    1. Day 1 Nairobi – Masai Mara National Reserve

      You will be collected from your Nairobi hotel or directly from the airport in the morning and transferred to Wilson Airport for a flight to Siana Springs, in the Masai Mara. You will be met by your guide and there will be an hour’s drive to camp. We reach our camp in a grove of acacia trees by a small stream at the southern edge of the Loita Plains at Olare Lamun (the rhino salt lick) in time for lunch. There will be an evening ride. Overnight Olare Lamun.

    2. Day 2 Masai Mara National Reserve

      A full day to explore this remote area that is rich in game. Drives, rides and walks may be taken from camp. Overnight Olare Lamun.

    3. Day 3 Masai Mara National Reserve

      Our first moving day and we break camp in good time as it is the longest ride of the trip covering nearly 50kms. We ride across rolling open plains and the game generally becomes more plentiful as we approach the Mara ecosystem. We should see herds of zebra, topi, giraffe, wildebeest, gazelle and there is a good chance of seeing elephant and buffalo as well. We reach our camp on the edge of the Masai Game Reserve on the Olare Orok Lugga in late afternoon. From camp we are likely to hear lion and hyena at night and the abundance of game is apparent everywhere. Overnight Olare Orok.

    4. Day 4 Masai Mara National Reserve

      Full day spent on morning and evening rides from camp with the option of driving into the game park for some good photographic opportunities. From the Landrovers we can get much closer to lion, elephant and buffalo than we are able to do safely from the horses. Overnight Olare Orok.

    5. Day 5 Masai Mara National Reserve

      Full day spent on morning and evening rides from camp with the option of driving into the game park for some good photographic opportunities. From the Landrovers we can get much closer to lion, elephant and buffalo than we are able to do safely from the horses. Overnight Olare Orok.

    6. Day 6 Masai Mara National Reserve

      Another moving day. We head west across the Mara plains and reach the Mara River on the Park boundary. We ford the river (unless in complete flood) at one of the famous wildebeest crossings. Heading south west across the Mara Triangle where we have our picnic lunch before ascending the Soit Olololol Escarpment to reach our camp in a forest glade with magnificent views overlooking the whole Mara ecosystem. Overnight Soit Olololol.

    7. Day 7 Masai Mara National Reserve

      We ride South West along the top of the escarpment enjoying more glorious views to the east and excellent going for the horses. We may see the beautiful Mrs. Ross’ and Schalows Turaco as well as much plains game. We descend the escarpment on foot along a rocky cattle track and have a picnic lunch under some acacias at the foot of the escarpment. After lunch we ride back through the Mara Triangle at the foot of the escarpment before ascending on a game trail. Many bachelor buffalo herds are a feature of the afternoon. Overnight Soit Olololol.

    8. Day 8 Masai Mara National Reserve

      We descend the escarpment again and ride across to the same wildebeest crossing on the river. We head in a North Western direction and after lunch, we find our final campsite set up on the banks of the Mara River. Close by there are some hippo pools and their grunting at night is a special feature of this camp. Overnight Mara River.

    9. Day 9 Masai Mara – Kericho

      Leaving camp after breakfast with a picnic lunch we drive via the tea growing area of Kericho to Deloraine. Deloraine is the beautifully restored colonial country home of your hosts, and the home of the 70 horses the safari and polo strings are selected from. The last few days give you a chance to recover from the adventure of the safari and relax to experience the colonial lifestyle of Kenya. We arrive in time for tea and an evening walk around the beautiful gardens.

    10. Day 10 Kericho

      An early morning ride before breakfast is optional. Also day trips to either the nearby Lake Nakuru Park or Bogoria famous for their flamingos can be arranged with a picnic lunch. Overnight Deloraine.

    11. Day 11 Departure

      Transfer to Nairobi in time for your return or onward journey. As with many riding holidays, the itinerary may change due to game movements, rainfall or other environmental or other conditions that are out of the control of the organizers. Please note: All itineraries are given for your guidance only and it may be altered on the ground and in accordance with the prevailing conditions by the organizing team.
