Safari Horse Riding Holidays

Horseback is a great way to enjoy a safari holiday, and so we have a wide range of Safari Horse Riding Holidays at locations throughout Africa, to allow you to get up close to some of the planet’s greatest wildlife while enjoying one of the things you love best.

A Safari Horse Riding Holiday provides the real wildlife experience as you are much more at one with nature when on horseback than you would be in the back of a 4WD vehicle that others travel in. And your horse can even be an added line of defence if there are larger animals lurking unseen, as your horse will sense the danger and move away accordingly if there happens to be an unseen lion or buffalo nearby – let’s see a jeep do that!

Our Safari Horse Riding Holidays can see you take in the Kalahari in Botswana, the Kruger in South Africa, the foothills of Mount Kenya, or even the Namibian Desert. Accommodation is top class at all the centres despite the remoteness of some of the locations, and other attractions on offer can include guided walks and game drives for non-riders, and canoe trips along rivers and lakes.

A Safari Horse Riding Holiday can take you close to big game such as lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and buffalo, so in general, you should be a confident rider who will be comfortable moving at fast pace should the need arise. The guides on our Safari Horse Riding Holidays are among the best in the business though, and so it would be exceedingly rare for anybody to experience even a hint of real danger, meaning that many of our rides are also suitable for absolute beginners.

Once you’ve narrowed down the range of the Safari Horse Riding Holidays you’re considering, use the Check Availability function to get in touch. We’ll get back to you shortly with dates, prices, and everything else you need to know, and hopefully you’ll soon be heading on a great safari adventure!
