Tanzania Horse Riding

There is nothing like riding through the bush to feel like you are part of the environment

Horse riding in Tanzania is one of the few pursuits that is not really that well catered for but it is certainly a growing interest and, as such, we thought we would include a small section on it, along with a few recommended areas to take a look at.

Mainly restricted to private concession lands in the north of Tanzania, horse riding, as many who have done it, will attest, is a superb way of getting close to the animals of the bush as, with the human scent masked and the noise of engines not present, animals are much more relaxed.

A couple of the best areas that we have come across for a riding safari in Tanzania include the superb Manyara Ranch Conservancy, the private concession to the west of the Serengeti, known as Grumeti Reserves, and, finally, for a bit of beach riding, Ras Kutani, to the south of Dar es Salaam.
