Offbeat Safaris Ltd - Profile

General Information

Offbeat Safaris is one of Africa's top Mobile Riding Safari Companies. Offbeat's thirty years experience of organising Riding Safaris throughout Kenya, means there are few companies that can equal our Guides knowledge and expertise. We understand the passion that our guests have for riding and aim to provide a service which is exhilarating, comfortable and most importantly, safe and fun. It takes years of experience to establish a safari company that can genuinely claim to take people to true wilderness areas of Africa whilst maintaining the high standards of the old traditional safaris. After 22 years operating safaris in Kenya, Offbeat Safaris can proudly say they have achieved this. Offbeat Safaris have a collection of unique camps and lodges in the Masai Mara, Meru National Park, The Great Rift Valley, The Kenyan Coast and in the Laikipia region of Northern Kenya as well as organising Africa's most exciting mobile horse riding safaris. Our ground handling operation arranges safaris to all these locations as well as throughout East Africa’s spectacular range of destinations including the Indian Ocean coastline.

Additional Information

Our horses are well schooled thoroughbred and thoroughbred cross. Many are home bred from our best mares. All of them are responsive, tough and fit. Many are trained for polo and the best ones are handpicked for each guest on their riding safari. Over the duration of a full riding safari our guests become highly attached to their own personal mounts. One of the key factors of any safari in Africa, but in particular a riding safari, is your guide. Offbeat has built its excellent reputation by providing guides who are top horsemen, passionate about Kenya's wildlife and great hosts. Most of the rides alongside the Masai Mara and through the northern ranches are on fairly open plains where you find black cotton soil interspersed with acacia bush. Many areas have short grass plains ideal for riding. Care must be taken for holes but canters and gallops are taken on the open plains. Good riding ability is important. Guests should be comfortable at all paces, be able to gallop and react quickly and safely - we ride in areas where big game wildlife is abundant. You should be fit enough to ride between 4 and 6 hours a day. The weight limit is 210 lbs or 95 kgs unless special requests are made. Picnic lunches are carried in saddle bags on days that the camp is moved. Lunch normally lasts 1 - 2 hours with a short siesta. Sometimes if we encounter rough terrain we dismount and have to walk. For each of our set departure safaris we require a minimum of 4 guests whilst we keep numbers to a maximum of 12 in a riding party unless previously agreed. Our tailor made riding safaris are organised to suit your own requirements for any agreed number of guests.
