In March 2017, DD Kingscote took a group of clients on a riding safari with Safaris Unlimited in Kenya. DD and her group spent a week in Laikipia, a vast expanse of wild country in the central highlands of Kenya rich with fascinatingly diverse cultures, scenic landscapes and abundant wildlife. They traversed three of the greater Laikipia conservancies including Lolldaiga, Ole Naishu and Borana on horseback.
A horseback safari with Felicia & Gordie Church (owners and guides of Safaris Unlimited), is the ultimate safari adventure to witness Africa’s incredible wildlife. DD has written an article detailing her Riding Safari experience below.
"It's hard to describe the little bit of magic that happens for me when I put my foot down in Africa, especially Kenya, the land of my birth. It's like taking off a heavy winter overcoat and revealing the skin underneath. There are places in Kenya that are so “right" that they bring comfort to one's very soul. So you can see that I am biased before I even begin to tell you about my kind of therapy".
The article is also published on Equine Info Exchange.
