More information on horseback safari & horse riding holidays in South Africa, Botswana, Kenya & beyond:
  
From horseback it is possible to explore at a unique level, riding across areas inaccessible by vehicle and covering distances not feasible on foot. Wildlife also responds differently to horses, with animals curious and less nervous, resulting in very special close encounters with big game such as elephant, as well as the chance to gallop amongst herds of plains game without disturbing the pattern of their behaviour. A horseback safari is a great privilege and an exceptional way to witness the majesty of Africa’s rich and diverse wildlife.
 
South Africa: Waterberg, Zululand, Kruger & Wild Coast
 
For those seeking a little luxury, look no further than South Africa, which has some wonderful riding lodges that combine great horse riding holidays with a great range of accommodation. The Waterberg region offers two stunning luxury lodges with incredible honeymoon facilities, as well as a working ranch that offers outrides in their reserve. Guests can try their hand at polocrosse, Western games and swimming with their horse in one of the local dams. There is even a luxury riding camp for those seeking a night or two under the stars. Families, couples and solo riders are all catered for and many return again and again for unforgettable horseback safari and horse riding holidays.
 
A Zululand riding lodge also caters for all levels of horseback safari & horse riding holidays and its luxury 5-star environment is particularly good for couples. For experienced riders, on the doorstep of South Africa’s Kruger Park, the Karongwe reserve offers a fabulous big 5 horseback safari, staying in luxury tented accommodation. At certain times of the year this ride incorporates a stay at the famous Garonga safari camp.
 
For beach-lovers, not much can compares to a gallop down the Wild Coast. Here riders can enjoy a combination of bush and beach on one of South Africa’s most beautiful coastlines, with spectacular scenery and quirky rural accommodation.
 
Botswana: Okavango, Tuli & Kalahari
 
For experienced riders looking for luxury camping, Botswana’s Okavango Delta delivers on all fronts. In this remote wilderness we offer several exceptional horse riding safaris. Each is located in a different area of the delta and they all offer incredible game-viewing experiences as well as excellent accommodation and service levels - offering unforgettable horseback safari & horse riding holidays in Botswana. In the south of the country, on the Limpopo River, we find the Tuli region bordering South Africa and Zimbabwe. Known as ‘The Land of the Giants’ this vast area is home to the Big 5 and is renowned for its elephant numbers. This ride features luxury camping in large walk-in tents on raised decking, as well as point to point rides.
 
For those looking for an extraordinary riding safari experience we suggest the Kalahari Salt Pans. In the winter these huge white pans stretch out as far as the eye can see, allowing for long gallops under the deep blue sky. It has been likened to galloping on the moon. In summer, the pans are brimming with lush palm islands and plains game. These set date departures are twinned with a meercat experience where riders are taken out into the bush to interact with a colony.
 
Kenya: Masai Mara and Laikipia
 
For the thrill-seeker, confident at all paces, Kenya’s Masai Mara mobile horseback safari is a must. This is only for very experienced riders, as it can involve close interaction with dangerous game and therefore the ability to gallop out of danger is essential. Camping is old-style luxury and service levels are excellent. For those looking for exciting horse riding holidays but from a lodge base, we have Sosian Lodge in the Laikipia region. Accommodation is in the original colonial homestead set against a backdrop of Mount Kenya with 30 safari horses to choose from.
 
If you have a large budget but limited time, then experienced riders will love Ol Malo Nomad. Drop into camp by helicopter where your horse and tent will be waiting for you, then spend a couple of nights under the stars before riding back to the Ol Malo House for some rest and relaxation. All equipment is carried by camel to allow for camping in the wildest areas. This is one of our most luxurious horse riding holidays.
 
Namibia: Namib Desert and Damaraland
 
For fit, nature-loving riders who enjoy a fast-paced horseback safari as well as rustic camping, the Namib Desert trail would suit well. Namibia offers some breath-taking scenery as well as adventurous terrain but the trails here are not for the faint-hearted. These are truly rewarding adventures for the adrenalin junkie and fast gallops across the vast expanses of sand are a highlight to be remembered forever. This 400 km ride is said to be one of the most challenging horseback trails in the world. From the escarpment to the sea, you and your pure-bred Arab will form a strong bond as you cross the desert together. Riders may also get a glimpse of the wild horses that live here, despite the harshness of the environment. We also have horse riding holidays in the Fish River Canyon and the Orange River region, which are slightly less taxing but just as exciting. These are the most difficult of our horse riding holidays in Africa.
 
Mozambique:
 
You can easily combine a thrilling Big Five safari in South Africa's Kruger National Park, with relaxed horse riding holidays incorporating some breathtaking beaches in Mozambique. The colours and vibrancy of this beautiful country attract guests from near and far and discovering it on horseback makes it all the more special. Expect to ride across pristine white beaches and swim your horse in the warm, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
