Mention Tanzania and three natural wonders spring to mind, Kilimanjaro, Serengeti and Zanzibar which are surely three of the most iconic and evocative names in the world? A staggering 38% of Tanzania’s landmass is national park, compared to 8% in Kenya and 9% in the England. What these stat’s tell you is that conservation is a top priority in Tanzania.
Safaris in 4X4’s are big business in Tanzania, and they’re great. But necessary rules such as not allowing vehicles to drive ‘off piste’ can be frustrating because wildlife goes where it goes, paying scant regard for safari tracks. And that’s where horses come in. Game crosses freely between Wildlife Management Areas, Conservation Areas and National Parks and the rider is free to follow where the 4X4 can’t. This means we can guarantee that elusive ‘wilderness factor’ far from the established routes. On a riding safari you can experience the African bush as it used to be 100 years ago.
