Riding Safaris

It is an extraordinary experience to traverse the wide African plains on a horse amidst a herd of zebra and giraffe or to canter through the waterways of the Okavango Delta! Being on horseback enables you to become one with the landscape and allows you to get closer to the game than being on foot and to reach places that vehicles can’t.

Some lodges in Kenya and South Africa offer horse riding as an alternative activity to game drives and many have horses for all abilities of rider.

You can also go on longer mobile riding safaris in Kenya, Botswana, South Africa and Malawi, but you should be a reasonably proficient rider in order to get the most out of them.
