Arrive by road to Olepangi Farm, driving through the beautiful Kikuyu Highlands, arriving in time for a hearty lunch. Spend the afternoon as you like. Perhaps a visit to see our donkeys, tortoises and resident Jersey cows. Enjoy a short ride on our 2 km canter to get accustomed to your horse and enjoy the local scenery. Or just relax ready for sun-downers and followed by dinner down on the river by a roaring fire. With luck we’ll have a magnificent night of glorious stars and “whoops” from the local hyenas.
Early risers can watch the sun rise over the mountain. We’ll ride out from our farm after breakfast to Loldaiga 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 the afternoon in time for a rest followed by sun-downers and dinner around the campfire.
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 each morning, 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. Back to camp for another brilliant lunch outside with the guides and there’s always some wine on offer to encourage a little nap before afternoon tea. The bird-life is some of the best in the world and towards sunset there is often elephant interaction to enjoy. 4X4 game drives are an option too for non-riders and those with a sore saddle. We’ll have sun-downers in one of our special places with views that will take your breath away!
Day 5 – After breakfast ride back through Lolldaigas and Ole Naishu to the farm. Spend your last afternoon relaxing or try your hand at archery or a game of croquet. You may choose to extend your trip with an additional night at the farm to relax before your onward journey.
