The riding is varied, sometimes quietly stalking game and admiring the bird life, sometimes cantering through the bush alongside galloping Giraffe and Antelope. Becoming part of a herd of zebra as they canter across the plains, or quietly approaching a browsing giraffe or basking hippo is a truly amazing feeling. Africa is a very special place, but Africa on horseback is truly magical.
Our Safari on Horseback portfolio offers fantastic affordable horse riding holidays and safaris in South Africa; a once in a lifetime horseback safari in the Okavango Delta or Selinda Reserve in Botswana; or on the ranches and alongside the Masai Mara in Kenya. These holidays can be enjoyed separately or combined to make a wonderfully varied African vacation.
All of the horses in the operations we work with are well schooled and trained to meet the needs of an African horse safari. Another key factor of any safari in Africa, but in particular a riding safari, is your guide, and we ensure that you have the best available. Depending on where you visit, you can spend your whole safari on a horse, view the bush on foot, or on traditional vehicular game drives.
To get the most out of a horseback safari a good riding ability is preferable, but we also can accommodate non-riding spouses & partners, friends and family, who can enjoy the many alternative game viewing activities.
