Safaris Unlimited is the oldest and most experienced horse riding outfitter in Africa. With over 45 years of guiding safaris in big game country. Each safari is personally guided by Gordie Church, the owner of the company. Gordie's father, Tony, pioneered riding safaris in Africa.

Safaris Unlimited riding safaris are fully mobile, using their own exclusive and luxury canvas camp. This safari company has between 25 and 30 horses that are loved, schooled, and experienced for this very particular task. Riding vacations take travelers across the Masai Mara and are without doubt the ultimate in riding safaris. Riders see an abundance of wildlife (lions, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, elephant, gazelle, zebra and more) in sheer numbers and variety.

Guests travel through open, unfenced exclusive conservancies and enjoy cultural experiences with the semi-nomadic Masai people. Laikipia is a vast expanse of wild country in the central highlands of Kenya. It stretches from the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kenya in the east, across the Equator, to the Great Rift Valley in the west. The landscape is physically diverse with open grasslands, basalt hills, escarpments, rivers and dense forests. It is widely accredited as Kenya’s premier safari destination. This is an epic and magical equestrian safari.


Safaris Unlimited specializes in traditional mobile safaris under luxury mobile canvas tents each with its own toilet and shower. Private camps are positioned in the most beautiful areas usually under a canopy of trees or overlooking a stream. The mosquito-proof tents are simply furnished in traditional safari camping style with double or single beds, carpets and bedside tables. Egyptian cotton sheets, warm feather duvets adorn the beds and hot water bottles are provided for the cool nights. Separate canvas shower and loo units are placed behind each tent.


Fresh and fabulous meals prepared by professional chefs. The dining tent is furnished with tables and chairs for elegant meals in camp, which include a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and fowl. These meals are prepared over open fires by our camp chefs and served by waiters.

Guests may also enjoy hot air ballooning, night game drives, mountain trekking, SCUBA diving, snorkelling, kite–surfing and sailing.
