Safaris unlimited is a Kenyan based family run horse riding safari company established in 1971. The founder Tony Church set up the company with funds he got after selling his golf clubs. He started off with 3 ponies to begin safaris across East Africa. Now run by his son Geordie Church and his wife Felicia Unlimited Safaris offers you a chance to take part in an exhilarating safari on horseback and discover Africa’s remote and wild places, with the human form disguised by the shape and movement of a horse you can get closer to the wildlife than by vehicle or foot and access areas that vehicles cannot reach.
