Horseback Riding Lake Naivasha Day Tour Sanctuary Farm is one of our most popular day tours from Nairobi. The highlights of the excursion include horse riding amongst wildlife and a beautiful landscape.
A day tour on horseback at Sanctuary Farm in Naivasha is a unique and incredible experience because you are able to get so close to the animals. Sanctuary Farm is a 500-acre dairy farm on the shores of Lake Naivasha which belongs to Francis Erskine who also breeds and trains racehorses.
The Sanctuary farm is carpeted in Acacia trees and leads down to Lake Naivasha. There is an abundance of wildlife including giraffe, wildebeest, impala, zebra, gazelle, dik-dik, hippo, and buffalo as well as an extraordinarily concentrated variety of birdlife.
The Farm borders Lake Naivasha and offers horse riding, cycling, bird watching, and wonderful walks in among zebra, wildebeest, and even giraffes. Our horse-riding day safari is suitable for experienced riders or those with minimal or no horse-riding experience.
The guides and horses are well trained, and you will receive brief training before your ride on the basics of controlling your horse. 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.
Mandatory safety helmets are provided for each rider. All horses have saddlebags, ideal for storing cameras, wallets, sunscreen, and water, etc. while out riding.
