Elizabeth_Gordon: Safari on Horseback
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
I have found that more and more clients are looking for activities to do in addition to traditional game-drives while on safari and horseback riding is one of the most popular requests. A safari on horseback is a unique and incredible experience because you are able to get so close to the animals. While wild animals may be nervous of human beings on foot or in a vehicle, they are much more relaxed around horses because the horse disguises your smell. Traveling on horseback also allows you to explore beyond the reach of a vehicle and is a welcome change when you have been sitting in a car on game-drives six to eight hours a day for much of your trip. Ride Kenya offers multi-day trips in Amboseli/Chyulu Hills in Kenya There are many horseback safari options in East and Southern Africa, offering everything from lessons and one to two hour rides to 10-day horseback camping adventures in the bush.

1. Abebe Bikila: Unknown Ethiopian Runner Wins Marathon Barefoot (Rome, 1960) Abebe Bikila, an unknown Ethiopian runner, won the marathon at the Rome Olympics, breaking the world record--and he did it barefoot. Bikila was from a tiny village in rural Ethiopia and didn’t even start running until he was 24 years old. At the time, he was working for the Emperor’s Guard and had been noticed by a Swedish coach who was hired by the Ethiopian government to spot potential athletes. Although Bikila had won multiple marathons in Ethiopia, his finishing times weren’t good enough to get him noticed. He wasn’t even slotted to go to the Rome Olympics in 1960, but he was sent in place of a teammate who had injured himself. Bikila was completely unknown when the marathon began. Commentators couldn’t even pronounce his name. What got him noticed was his bare feet, which many in the audience and the media found funny. The marathon route in Rome was drawn to showcase the city’s sp ...
