Horseback Safaris

Horseback Safaris. For those who have experienced the buzz of being out of a vehicle while on safari, you know the exhilaration of being so close to nature! Sights and sounds are more intense, senses more alert, colors more vibrant, and the animals that much closer on a horseback safari!

A hidden thrill for those passionate about outdoors and wildlife, something that takes a safari experience to the next level, is the adventure of horseback safaris! On horseback in the wild open, tracking elephant, buffalo, giraffe or antelope - with nothing between you and the wildlife, invites an experience that cannot be captured anywhere else in the world.

It is not only about wildlife, but landscape and remoteness too. You will most likely be the only person for miles and miles in some of the most untouched, pristine land in the world. In the Okavango Delta, the Makgadikgadi Pans, The Kalahari, the endless Serengeti Plains or the wilds of famous parks in Kenya.
This is an opportunity to stretch those legs, feel the wind in your hair, the air in your lungs and the elation of cantering through Africa's wilderness.

On Horseback Safaris groups are small and exclusive, generally catering for an experienced rider. You should be considerate of your wild surroundings and the unpredictable nature that wildlife adventures hold. Large tents are the norm for Horseback Safaris accommodation. If this sounds rustic, you don't have to worry as you won't find yourself lacking in any luxuries offered by safari lodges. Camps are set in stunning locations throughout Botswana, Tanzania and Kenya making full use of Africa's endless wilderness.

Your horseback safari hosts share the same passions as you for horses. Added to this is their burning love for Africa and her wildlife. They have been working the landscape for years so are completely in tune and experienced. Regular encounters with wildlife, stunning scenery and expert leadership make for world-class unique horseback safaris!

You have the chance of being a part of a unique herd where splashing and cantering through lagoons, tracking elephant or buffalo, crossing the plains with zebra and giraffe, or simply relaxing and watching the setting African sun is a part of the journey.
