In the footsteps of the greatest mammal on earth.

Off the beaten path, away from crowds and engines, we explore Africa in the shadow of the snowy peaks of Mt Kilimajaro, encounter wild life, raw and genuine tribes, the true and traditional mobile safari, where we cover great distances on the back of a horse. 

The thrill of galloping across the Serengeti plains, surrounded by thousands of wildebeest, the greatest migration on earth. Up and close with the giants, the elephant.

    Well, what can I say except that the ride surpassed all my expectations? I enjoyed every single minute of it. Our guide was simply excellent, brimming with knowledge and always making the journey engaging for everyone. The horses were truly fantastic. Being a beginner, I wasn't sure what to expect, but my horse immediately put me at ease. She knew exactly what to do, and I felt completely safe throughout. I'd enthusiastically recommend this experience to anyone seeking something truly special.

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

    The migration ride offered breathtaking scenery and landscapes, teeming with wildlife. The tents were fantastic, the food delightful, and the team operated seamlessly. It truly was a one-of-a-kind experience, filled with wild adventure amidst nature's endless plains. And the horses? Simply outstanding.
