Riding, driving and walking safari
Our riding, 4x4 and walking safaris are operated in Lolldaiga Hills. Lolldaiga Hills is a 49,000 acre cattle ranch and wildlife conservancy. Located 20 km North West of Mount Kenya at an altitude of between 1,800 – 2,300m, the Ranch has outstanding and uninterrupted views of Mount Kenya and the Aberdares. The Lolldaiga range is an ancient land form, comprising of a series of magnificent high folding hills, cedar forests, open grassland and wooded valleys
Lolldaiga Hills is largely untouched by tourism which gives us a 49,000 acre playground pretty much to ourselves. We can explore the vast ranch on horseback, walking or in a 4x4. Our safaris are in no way ridged so we tend to sit down each evening and discuss with guests what they would like to do the following day. One morning we may head out at first light and ride/walk/drive into a ready-made bush breakfast before heading back to base. Sundowners are a big highlight for us with views that will take your breath away.
As Lolldaiga Hills is a working cattle ranch we can also show you this aspect of the farm. Watching the cattle dipping is a sight to behold and we can explain to you the importance of this to the wildlife.
Our horses are all well-schooled thoroughbred and thoroughbred cross. We ride on English saddles and require a good riding ability for our safaris.
