HORSE RIDING SAFARIS
The bond between man and beast is as close as it can ever be when riding through areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Horse riding can be one of the most exhilarating ways to enjoy the African bush and see wildlife in its natural environment. Few experiences rival that of cantering beside a towering giraffe, walking amongst migrating wildebeest or zebra; joining a family of elephant to drink from a river or cantering down a pristine, white sandy beach. On horseback you can discover more remote areas where no vehicles venture, and enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings.

Experienced riders can enjoy exhilarating safaris riding at speed alongside plains game or quietly stalking elephant and buffalo. With the human form disguised by the shape and movement of a horse, you can get closer to the wildlife than by vehicle or on foot. It’s also possible to cover significant distances over remote regions on horseback – some beyond the reach of even the strongest four-wheel drive vehicles. Serious equestrians can choose from specialist riding safaris lasting several days, fly-camping out under the stars and tacking up at dawn for up to six hours in the saddle.
For those less experienced, but who still would like some riding during their safari, there are plenty of options for shorter, gentler rides. You can experience life on a farm where horses are a part of the daily routine. Here you can ride if you want, or simply enjoy a very different way of living in rural Africa.
We can offer a variety of riding experiences through Southern and East Africa, suitable for all levels of experience, from those who have never ridden before, to serious riders who wish to spend a week or more riding every day.
