What could be better, wide open spaces, and endless challenging and varied trails? Riding along a winding goat trail at one moment, then the next slowing to watch as a giraffe makes its way over the track ahead. The best riding you have ever seen, come and enjoy it with us, and judge for yourself. Undoubtedly this is the best way to experience Kenya's astonishing variety. Our routes take us through everything, from arid desert, and temperate highlands to lush rainforest. We meet local people face to face, get closer to the wildlife and ride into the scenery.
