Galloping across the plains of Africa offers an unrivalled experience and a thrilling way to get close to the wildlife, surrounded by majestic landscapes.

There are riding safaris to suit all ages, abilities and interests. From week long mobile safaris, where the focus is purely on riding, to staying in cosy homesteads on wildlife ranches where riding is just one of the many activities.

From the open plains of the Masai Mara, and the more rugged areas of northern Kenya to the arid landscapes of Namibia and the water world of the Okavango Delta - there are plenty of diverse regions to explore atop four legs.

Great combo’s

End with a beach flop or even a few days in Cape Town or the winelands.
