BIG 5 HORSE RIDING SAFARIS

Safari on Horseback

BIG 5 HORSE RIDING SAFARIS

Explore some of the most extraordinary and mesmerizing parts of Africa on horseback, where you can follow in the footsteps of great explorers and feel the wind in your hair as you ride across the plains surrounded by nature in its wildest form. Riding in the various areas can be done either for a couple of hours or as a multi-day adventure. Riders need to be riding fit, comfortable in the saddle for long stretches and happy with cantering. The horses are well schooled and used to sharing their environment with the wildlife. Riding equipment is included, and the group size is generally restricted to 6 guests accompanied by 2 experienced guides. Age restrictions generally apply to children of 12 years and over and there’s a respectful weight limit of 95 kilograms.
