First permanent riding stables open in the Maasai Mara

Great Plains Conservation has opened the first permanent riding stables in Kenya’s Maasai Mara.

Ride Kenya – Mara is a stand-alone riding stable of 16 horses, offering rides in the wildlife-rich Maasai Mara and exclusive Mara Conservancies.

The rides are available to any competent horse rider (minimum age 14+, maximum weight 95kg) staying in any camp in the Mara Conservancies and Maasai Mara National Reserve. The stables are located in the heart of these protected areas. Morning and afternoon rides of up to eight guests are available to competent riders at a price of US$250 per ride.

The experienced head guides, Ali Mundy and Martin Dodwell, have migrated north after spending the last 12 years in the Grumeti Reserves of Tanzania, together with all their top-condition horses and equipment.

Booking procedure, location, guide profiles, horses and equipment are all detailed on the Ride Kenya – Mara factsheet, which you can view here.
