Horseback Riding in the Green Hills of Africa - Day Experience

When Ernest Hemingway wrote “The Green Hills of Africa” it’s likely he took his inspiration from the Chyulu Hills of Kenya. Amazingly, these rolling, volcanic hills are the youngest volcanic range in Africa. The mist forests of the hills contrast with the golden savannahs below, providing an idyllic backdrop for a safari by horseback.

What will you see from the saddle? The terrain here is thick with herds of zebra and impala, stalked by the park’s resident lions. Along the way, you’ll be gobsmacked by the scenery: The open plains, rolling hills and snow-topped Kilimanjaro invoke images of Africa as it was in the earlier part of the last century. This is truly an unspoiled corner of the world. Horseback riding through this wilderness provides a uniquely quiet, intimate way to view game.

A splendid base of operations from which to embark on your horseback wilderness adventure is Ol Donyo, one of the lodges situated in the Chyulu Hills. Ol Donyo is a partner in a groundbreaking organization called Great Plains Conservation. Through the Maasailand Preservation Trust, the Lodge supports the Maasai way of life and the conservation of the ecosystem. The Maasai are a warm and gracious people and simply by visiting Ol Donyo, partaking in a horseback safari, and visiting the Maasai villages nearby, you are contributing directly to the survival of the region’s flora, fauna, and the valuable and unique local culture.

Chyulu Hills

Rugged wilderness, volcanic origins, African wildlife and the plains on which these mammals run on, is one of Kenya's most photogenic regions. The rolling grassland that runs 30 miles long is the mountain range of the Chyulu Hills. It is the borderline that divides the Wakamba people from Maasai land and Amboseli National Park with Mt. Kilimanjaro. Visitors to Chyulu Hills can spot Kenya's last wild black rhinoceros here!
