Hustai National Park
Hustai National Park is a land of arid steppe, forest, and gentle slopes located just 2-3 hours by car west of Ulaanbaatar. Hustai is home to Mongolia's last remaining population of wild horses, the rare and critically endangered Przewalski's Horse, which was successfully reintroduced to the preserve after having been extinct in the wild since the 1960's. Hikes through the unspoiled wilderness here offer opportunities to see the gorgeous wild horses and other wildlife as well as large birds such as falcons and eagles.

Our co-founder Jay Tindall's favourite Mongolia experiences include off-road driving through lunar landscapes, meeting nomad families, and the spectacular Naadam festival.
The site of a herd of wild horses thundering across the steppe is awe-inspiring and unforgettable. The best time to see the horses is at dawn or dusk, which usually means spending a night in the simple ger camp owned by the Hustai National Park Trust which was set up to reintroduce the Mongolian Wild Horse, or simply Takhi, in 1993. The horses were gathered in the Netherlands and flown in, and the program has been highly successful.
