One of the best ways to experience the African wilderness

Go completely off-road and get up-close and personal with the wildlife

Taking part in a horse riding safari must be one of the best ways to experience the African wilderness. You are no longer simply an observer looking out of the comforting metal shell of 4-wheel land cruiser, but can go completely off-road and get up-close and personal with the wildlife. The horses themselves are in-tune with their surroundings and can sense the presence of other animals long before their riders.

Different centres will cater to different abilities, but be warned, if you are not riding fit, you will get quite saddle sore after a few hours! The tack used can vary between English, western and Australian stock, with most centres catering for several styles.

Some lodges and hotels suggest horse riding as an activity to be done alongside a range of others that are available in that area. There are also plenty of centres catering specifically to equestrians who want several days of riding and camping to get the full horseback safari experience. Some of the best places for more full-on horseback safaris include Madagascar, Morocco, Namibia, South Africa, Mozambique, Kenya and Botswana.
