Riding Safaris

Many people dream of riding holidays in Africa. From a horse you join the rhythm of the bush, becoming part of the landscape, with a huge sense of freedom which is exhilarating.

Mobile African horse riding safaris are usually 5 to 10 nights’ duration and are operated as scheduled departures which individuals/couples can book into. Exclusive trips which include riding safaris can be tailored for groups of friends or families. Alternatively, guests can stay in a camp/lodge with optional short riding safaris for a morning or afternoon.
