Safaris Unlimited

Founded in 1971, Safaris Unlimited is an exclusive and distinguished horseback riding safari company and we pride ourselves as being the most experienced and luxurious riding outfit in Africa. Small, bespoke and family owned, we operate a true mobile safari in wildlife country unrivalled anywhere else on earth. Journeying through the open plains of Kenya on solid crossbred horses offers a magical African experience to witness abundant wildlife on horseback. Each safari is privately guided by Gordie Church who grew up in Masailand and is the son of Tony Church, who pioneered riding safaris in Africa over 40 years ago.
