Horse Treks in Africa are one of the best ways of going on safari! We have so many that we can really recommend!
Depending upon your riding ability and fitness level, one of our top riding treks or safaris is in the Masai Mara, for ten days. Here one rides with the wildebeest migration at certain times of year. The riding is fast paced and is interspersed with game drives as well. Camp is moved from place to place and it is simply perfect – you have the finest of guides, the very best horses, the greatest amount of fun, the wildlife is the best you can possibly hope to get – especially riding alongside thousands of wildebeest – and for experienced riders, this is the Rolls Royce of riding safaris!
Then we have amazing riding safaris in Botswana. Top of the list must be our desert and delta ride. Here one rides for three nights or more in the delta (and this can cater for a wider range of ability), riding through the water, swimming with the horses. This is great fun – and then the very best – riding through the Kalahari desert for five days. The scenery has to be seen to be believed. It is so extraordinarily beautiful – with desert dwelling species and gorgeous camps to sleep in! For those who want a slight difference, we also do a paddle and saddle – so it is a canoe safari for a few days followed by the same riding safari in the Kalahari desert. Just magical!
Then we have riding safaris in South Africa, too and a number of places where one can ride out for just a couple of hours during the day. We can also offer riding in Tanzania, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Uganda.
