Ride the WildRide the Wild

Carry more memories home by riding on horseback across the Ol Pejeta plains. The experience, which lasts two hours, is unparalleled. You will ride through the northern white rhino enclosure, then out the gate onto the Ol Pejeta plains and to the rhino memorial, Sudan’s resting place.

Horse riding gives you a unique perspective of the landscape and allows you to get closer to wildlife than in a safari vehicle. You will feel a sense of quiet isolation amidst the vast scenery of Ol Pejeta Conservancy.  Depending on weather conditions and rider experience there may be a swim in Pelican dam.

The rides will only be open to experienced riders and some proof of riding ability will be required at point of booking; clients judged to be of insufficient riding ability will not be permitted to undertake this activity.

Ol Pejeta will supply all tack and riding hats; clients will be responsible for their own attire.  We recommend that legs and arms are covered.

Rides for up to 9 riders will be available daily from 8:00-10:00 and 14:00-16:00. We would recommend that clients wear sun-cream and carry drinking water. Subject to availability at time of booking.

Price per person inclusive of meeting the northern white rhinos and riding will be US$ 70.
