    Very cool experience! This was a guided horse back ride through a private game reserve. While we also did the full on safari in the wild, we got much closer to zebra, gazelle, wildebeest and elan on this tour than we ever did in the safari vehicles when in the national parks. The tour guide spoke little english, but enough to keep us safe and give us directions. He also let us trot/canter versus just walk the entire time.

    Lekinyi, my guide, was so knowledgeable and we had an amazing two hour ride. We were so close to the animals! The eland was the only one I saw on my entire two week trip. We trotted and cantered which was such a thrill. The property is semi-enclosed but enormous and I felt very safe (no predators) but had a sense of no boundaries. Some of my group who didn’t go were very disappointed they didn’t when they saw my pictures. Would go again.

    The moment we arrived at the Horse Safari we were quite dissapointed. This is no wildlife and no safari. The animals (zebras, antilopes, monkeys) are living in an area that is surrounded by fences. They get fed by people.
    When we called the costumer service the experience got even worse. The woman on the phone didn’t let us speak out. She got mad because we told her that this is no wildlife. She answerd „maybe you have another definition of wildlife. But for me this is what I call safari and wildlife.“ Then she hung up.

    We couldn’t get our money back.

    So we didn’t the horse riding tour. The people who are working there are very kind and nice. So we had fun with them and the horses! A sante sana :)

    It is clearly stated that the ride is on a wildlife estate and due to a severe drought in east africa we are helping animals to push through a though draught instead of dying. If you would have done the ride you would have been able to experience it however you did not so pls do not talk about an experience that you never did. If you would have read the information we provide you will find that everything you accuse us for as clearly written. Thank you.

    Amazing experience with Kaskazi Horse Safaris. We decided to go for the 2h safari near Arusha and was amazing. You ride while passing by zebras, buffalos, impalas, dik dik, etc.
    Can be for any level. We decided to go for beginners and we were that comfortable during the ride that we could trot. Great guide and amazing landscapes.

    That's a strong go!!

    I have just returned from an absolutely fabulous morning at Kaskazi Horse Safaris. The reserve is situated around 45 minutes from our hotel in Arusha, we arrived at 8am and were welcomed by the very friendly staff. The stables are immaculate and the horses are very well kept. Good quality riding hats are provided, and chaps too if required. There was just myself and my friend on the ride which completely exceeded our expectations, we had not expected to see such an abundance of wild animals and to get so close to them! Our guide explained that the horses graze in the park and therefore the other animals are not afraid of them. We saw zebra, gerenuk, gazelles, wildebeest, antelope, dik dik, monkeys and many more. Our super guide paced the ride perfectly to our riding ability, we spent time hacking gently whilst watching and photographing the wildlife and finished with several great canters. The park is stunningly beautiful and there are fabulous views of Mount Meru too. The ride is suitable for all abilities including beginners and the horses are beautifully behaved.

    I would absolutely recommend this ride to anyone, what a wonderful way to see Tanzania!

    We have never experienced a team as dedicated to creating a life-adventure as the Kaskazi horse safari team built and led by Jo. She was personally involved (as she clearly has been for 12(?) years) in every small part of our family’s week on horseback safari, our first. 10 guests were supported by 19 staff and 17 top-rank horses—most thoroughbreds that had been thoroughly trained for the bush. Marvelous!
    The staff gave the horses and riders top care and were super-in-tune with the smallest changes in each. Tara’s deep horse-sense experience boggled my comprehension. Three grooms cared for the horses behind the scenes. Our tents (sleeping and separate shower/toilet for each guest/couple) were set up, cleaned, moved to new sites (with our personal gear). The facilities team never failed.
    The food and drink was great. Nothing lacked and all was creative. For a moving camp safari, I don’t see how it could be better.
    Our week safari traveled between Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru in Arusha National Park. The variety of terrain (forests, plains, hills, desert(?), bog) was super cool to see and ride. Jo and Tara led the way perfectly.
    Animals? Yup. And from horseback, they were uniquely special. What was better? Horses or animals? Hard to tell. The gallops on thoroughbreds across the plains…pretty hard to beat.

    This is a great one day excursion. Easy to get to from Arusha. Ride with the zebra and gazelle. The horses will take you at any speed you want.

    Well what can I say besides the ride went beyond my expectations. I loved every minute of it, the guide was excellent and had a wealth of knowledge and was always engaging with all the rides. The horses were fantastic, as I was a beginner I did not know what to expect but my horse put my mind at ease, she knew exactly what to do and I felt very safe.
    I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a unique experience.

    It was amazing, especially during sunset! You don’t even need to be an experienced horse rider. The landscape was also really pretty and so are the wild animals!
