There is such a huge range of riding safaris in Africa that it can be difficult to work out which is the best one for you. From the ten night Special Big 5 Safari in South Africa to a half day ride from one of the excellent safari camps and lodges in Botswana, Kenya, South Africa, Namibia and Mozambique; from the lush watery paradise of the Okavango Ride in Botswana to the wide open plains of the Masai Mara Ride in Kenya.
The length, topography and demands of each ride vary but there is something for everyone; from the beginner to the very experienced. To help our clients, Bushbuck has developed a guide to Africa’s Mobile Riding Safaris which details the locations, the rides, the duration, the dates and the prices of the very best, together with details of availability.
Our Guide to Africa’s Mobile Riding Safaris is a useful starting point, to assist with the preliminary enquiry stage. When it comes to making a final decision, however, we will discuss your exact requirements in detail before advising on which riding safari best meets (and exceeds) your expectations. We will also advise on how to make the most of your time in Africa, building an itinerary that provides diversity and balance within your specified time constraints and budget.
We know each of the operators and their rides personally and, once we know your riding level, whether you are travelling with others of varying ability and your appetite for adventure we will help to match you to a riding safari. It is up to you whether you would like to undertake a mobile riding safari, moving from camp to camp, a journey into remote areas, or whether you prefer to stay in a camp or lodge, riding out by day. If some of your party are non-riders, we can advise on the best way for them to enjoy their time with you in the bush undertaking alternative activities.
If you wish to see a particular area, or have been on riding safaris before, we can advise on the best times to visit each region and ensure that you have a unique and memorable experience. At Bushbuck, we offer a personal service so that you don’t simply pick a riding safari from a brochure. This does not come at an added cost. Prices are the same if you book through us as to book direct.
There was a time when there were distinct safari seasons across Africa. But things have changed over the years and visiting outside the traditional seasons is now not only possible, but often desirable.
