Depart Nairobi and head north towards the Rift Valley town of Naivasha. On route we will stop for views across the Great Rift Valley, Mount Longonot and Lake Naivasha. Drive around the southern end of the lake, past the flower farms to the entrance of Kedong Ranch..

Horseback Riding:
On arrival at Kedong Ranch, you will be met by your horse-riding guides who will give you a safety briefing and get you kitted-up ready to mount your horse. For two hours you will explore Hells Gate National Park and enjoy riding amongst the wild game including giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala and gazelle. Then later enjoy a picnic.

Basically, you will only go at a pace that you feel comfortable. You will encounter wildlife on this safari, however the horses live and interact with this game daily and are not scared by close up riding. There are no predators in the areas where you will ride. All horse safaris are accompanied by two or more guides, so riders within groups have the opportunity to temporarily separate, allowing more experienced riders to ride at a more advanced pace and those not so confident to stay within their comfort zone. 

After  2 hours horseback riding we proceed on an exploratory tour either on bikes or by vehicle
