Horseback Safaris Horse Riding Holidays Botswana Kenya South Africa

Horse Riding Safaris

Our Riding Safaris offer the unique chance to view game up close from horseback and our large selection of rides means everyone can have the chance to experience this.
 
Complete beginners will be enchanted with a horse riding holiday in Africa, as they weave through herds of grazing zebra - while experienced riders will enjoy the thrill of galloping across wide open savannah and tracking big game with experienced and knowledgeable safari guides.
  
Our riding safaris portfolio includes lodges, luxury camps and point to point trails across much of Southern & East Africa - including Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Kenya and Mozambique.  
 
We also offer horse riding holidays in Latin America, including Argentine, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Mexico.
 
Call us on 01582 766122 for some wonderful riding safaris in Africa & horse riding holidays in Latin America.
 
Selling horse riding safaris for over 15 years. All our horse riding holidays are financially protected, wherever in the world you live.
From horseback it is possible to explore at a unique level; we ride across areas inaccessible by vehicle and cover distances not feasible on foot.  Similarly the game’s response to horses differs from its reaction to jeeps and walkers. Animals are curious and less nervous, resulting in 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 horse riding holiday in Africa is a privilege and an exceptional way to witness the majesty of Africa’s rich and diverse wildlife.
 
HORSE RIDING HOLIDAYS IN AFRICA
 
South Africa: Waterberg, Zululand, Mpumalanga and Wild Coast
For those seeking a little luxury look no further than South Africa; here we have some wonderful lodges.  All combine great horse riding safaris with exceptional accommodation.  Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill offer two simply stunning locations with incredible honeymoon facilities.  At Horizon, as well as outrides in the reserve, guests can also try their hand at polocrosse, Western games and swimming with their horse in one of the local dams. There is even a luxury 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 horse riding holidays in Africa.
 
Like Horizon, our Zululand lodge caters for all levels of riding safaris and its 5-star luxury environment is particularly good for couples. For experienced riders, on the doorstep of South Africa’s Kruger Park in the Karongwe reserve, we offer fabulous big 5 horse riding holidays in Africa - with luxurious tented accommodation. At certain times of the year this ride also incorporates a stay at the famous Garonga safari camp. And for the beach-lovers not much compares to a gallop down the Wild Coast. Here riders enjoy a combination of bush and beach on one of South Africa’s most beautiful coastlines with its spectacular scenery and quirky, rural accommodation.
 
Botswana: Okavango Delta, Tuli Block and Kalahari
For experienced riders looking for luxury camping Botswana’s Okavango Delta delivers on all fronts. In this remote wilderness we can offer three exceptional horse riding safaris. Each located in a different area of the delta, they all boast incredible game-viewing experiences as well as unsurpassed accommodation and service levels - offering amazing horse riding holidays in Africa. In the south of the country, on the Limpopo River, we find the Tuli Block 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.
 
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 which is undergoing a habituation programme and therefore used to people. This is one of our most memorable horse riding holidays in Africa.
 
Kenya: Masai Mara and Laikipia
For the thrill-seeker, confident at all paces, Kenya’s Masai Mara mobile riding 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 exceptional. For those looking for exciting riding safaris 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 time is an issue but budget allows, 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 in Africa.
 
Namibia:  The Namib Desert and Damaraland
For fit, nature-loving riders who enjoy fast-paced riding safaris as well as rustic camping, the Namib Desert trails would suit well. Namibia offers some breath-taking scenery as well as adventurous terrain and our 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 400km ride is said to be the most challenging horse trail 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 there despite the harshness of their environment. We also have superb riding safaris in the Fish River Canyon and the Orange River region, which is slightly less taxing but just as exciting. This is the most difficult of our horse riding holidays in Africa.
 
Mozambique: Vilanculos and Benguerra Island
For those searching for a relaxed riding holiday incorporating some breathtaking beaches we can highly recommend 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. For horse riding holidays in Africa with a difference, and something extra special, why not base your entire stay on Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago.
 
Our horseback safaris have been carefully chosen to showcase all the wonders Africa has to offer and we are confident we have riding safaris & horse riding holidays in Africa for everybody.
