Kusini Elephant Day 3
You wake up with the sun and a big breakfast is served, thereafter it is time to get on your horse. The directions are north bound, with Mt Meru towering in the west. The days ride is amongst Tanzanian farmland and the Massai steppe, its scenic
with many cultural interactions as the rides goes along. We make use of the cooler hours in the morning and try to cover as much ground as possible. The lunch is served under a big acacia, sometimes near to a dam where the Massai’s water their
cattle and we our horses. You will have a good 3 – 3 1⁄2 hour’s stop for lunch, with time for a siesta to regain some strength. The afternoon continues across opened plains, making sure to reach our night stop before the sun hits the horizon.
The night is spent in an area called Nyumbu, named after its usual frequent abundance of wildebeests.
kusini Elephant Day 4
Early wake up calls followed by an English breakfast. Everyone mounts their companion and the safari starts heading towards the so-‐‑called Seven Sisters. After have crossed the seven hills (seven sisters) we ride through Sinya Village and continue
towards lunch, served under a shady tree. The terrain varies from opened grassland to beautiful canopy forests. The day offers good chance of seeing plains game such as zebras, giraffes and wildebeests but most important is the presence of
the shy antelope, the Gerenuk that we will keep an eye for as we ride along. The night is spent at an astonishing place, hopefully the night is clear and you will get the feeling being watched by four powerful mountains, Mt Meru, Namanga,
Longido and the most legendary of all, Mt Kilimanjaro.
