The striking landscapes of the Chyulu Hills National park are tucked away between the renowned Tsavo West and Amboseli National park. The park includes a collection of ancient volcanic cinder cones and craters, with the most recent volcanic peak forming just 500 years ago. Visitors will delight in the breathtaking vistas of Mt Kilimanjaro and the wonderful game viewing opportunities. The birdwatchers paradise of Lake Jipe lies in the south -west corner of the park.
The Chyulu Hills and the surrounding ecosystem lend itself perfectly to horseback safaris. the going is coarse, volcanic sand, which is ideal footing for fast or slow riding. A horse can navigate this diverse landscape so gracefully, moving in and out of the wildlife without disturbance and covering miles of open country.
Ol Donyo’s team of 25 horses, ranging in size and performance to suit riders of all levels, can take guests out riding twice daily. Lodge guests are offered rides every morning and evening, with a break in the middle of the day. Those more zealous riders, wanting more hours in the saddle, can opt for 1 or 2 nights fly camping, where they ride further afield, keeping the horses with them throughout, taking a lightweight camp to sleep in at night.
