Wildlife and Africa go hand-in-hand, and when you team this with horseback safari, you are on to a winner. The majority of our rides take you passed much African wildlife but this selection of rides particularly offers exceptional game viewing. The aim of these rides is to get you incredible animal sightings as you ride through some of Africa’s most spectacular landscapes. There is a mixture of trail-based and lodge-based rides – Please enquire if you would like more help with identifying which ride would suit you best.
Scenery Horse riding safari
Not only does Africa offer stunning wildlife, it also offers scenery like nowhere else on the planet. A lot of these rides also take you through areas with wildlife, but if it is vast, stunning and unique landscapes you are looking for, all these rides will provide just that. Our scenery-focused rides often make fabulous return trips to Africa, once you have experienced Africa’s wildlife, and now you want to horse ride and explore through new and different scenery.
Our working holiday options are perfect for those who have at least two weeks of travel time to play with and have a tighter budget. These opportunities allow you to get behind the scenes of an African stables and an insight into the African way of life. Whilst these trips are discounted as a result of you volunteering, they are still very much a holiday – You will be horse riding every day and get to experience a huge variety of horse riding activities.
Horse safari suitable for families and non-riders
We often get asked if it is possible to team a horse riding safari with non-riders. The answer is yes. We have several horse safaris that work extremely well with a mixed group, or couple, that has both riders and non-riders. This is the same for families; we can cater for children from the age of 5 in some of our reserve-based rides, and then from 12 + in fence-less areas where you can come across the Big 5.
