Our horse riding safaris offer a perfect blend of adventure and tranquillity, allowing you to connect with nature, observe wildlife from a unique perspective, and create unforgettable memories.

When the Dyer family first came to Borana Conservancy, horses were the only means of transport. The family’s love of horses remains strong and horse riding continues to be one of the best ways of seeing wildlife. We thoroughly recommend it to all our guests and can cater to all riding abilities.

At the Borana Conservancy Head Quarters, we keep a stable of over thirty horses suitable for all riders. We have patient, easy horses, who have been trained to be careful with children and novice riders. From our stables, guests can ride through the plains among giraffe, zebra, eland and impala and experience wildlife at close quarters.

For the more experienced rider, we have thoroughbred horses and thoroughbred-crosses standing between 14.2hh and 16.3hh. All the horses are well-schooled and ridden in snaffle bridles. Guests can explore Borana and beyond, meandering across this beautiful landscape and riding among a variety of wildlife species which populate the conservancy.

We use English-style Wintec saddles and have a few Australian stock saddles. These are chosen specifically to ensure the comfort of both the horse and rider.

All advanced riders must be comfortable at a walk, trot and canter in an English saddle.

Non-riders and beginners are welcome at any level.

There is a strict weight limit of 15 stone/210 lbs/95 kg.

Riding Wild Borana is a proud member of the African Horse Safari Association.
