Whoa! We’re so thrilled that Ride Kenya is featured all over the Tatler Travel Guide 2013 this month, including the front cover.
Pick up your copy of January’s Tatler, on news-stands now in the UK, and read the excellent feature highlighting the best eleven horse rides in the world. Ride Kenya opens the show through an excellent article complied by Daisy Finer and experienced first-hand (actually about 15 hands) by her mother, Hilary Finer, riding amongst wildlife beneath the snow-capped backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Ride Kenya’s Big 5 ways to ride:
1. 7 days/6 night Chyulu Hills safari itinerary. Unbeatable scenery and riding for strong intermediate to advanced riders.
2. 8 days/7 nights Amboseli safari itinerary. Advanced and adventurous riders only.
3. NEW 11 days/10 nights Amboseli-Chyulu safari itinerary. Combining both the Amboseli Ride and Chyulu Hills ride.
4. Private tailor-made departures e.g. 4 nights itinerary. For private groups.
5. Centre-based riding holidays at ol Donyo Lodge
The first four are fully-supported mobile rides with anything from 2-10 people on a ride. The latter is perfect for mixed-ability groups of riders and non-riders based at our newly accredited Relais & Châteaux lodge, ol Donyo Lodge. For the mobile safaris riders do have to be fit, competent jockeys, capable of keeping up a fair pace over uneven terrain. Expect to spend between 4 and 7 hours a day in the saddle. As well as riding there are plenty of opportunities to game drive, walk and to relax – giving sore behinds a rest after a thrilling day in the saddle.
Patrick Stanton, Ride Kenya’s co-founder has moved to the UK to pursue a range of equestrian adventures. He is, however, available to give talks on Ride Kenya through client events that you may be planning to hold, as well as being a private guide on a freelance basis for Ride Kenya private group departures. Please contact me if you’d be interested in taking up his services. He leaves Ride Kenya after 9 years in the very capable hands of Paddy and Kim (see box on right).
The Chyulu Hills safari costs USD4,500 per person sharing in 2013 (excluding flights). This includes a USD600 per person contribution to the work of the Big Life Foundation, which has recently merged with the Maasailand Preservation Trust, headed by Richard Bonham and Nick Brandt. Big Life does hugely important work with local communities and safe-guarding wildlife in the Chyulu Hills-Amboseli-Kilimanjaro region.
We still have availability on the 19th January Amboseli departure for those seeking a week of excitement during what’s otherwise the height of a cold British winter.
