Horse riding safaris
To take part in a riding safari you need to be frank about your riding ability - if you're new to riding, are accustomed to short 1hr rides or are thinking of trying it out for the first time, our one week or longer rides are not for you. We do offer short riding activities which you can book at some of our lodges on arrival.
A typical day in the saddle on a specialist horse riding safari, can last for up to six hours, rising at dawn and fly-camping under the stars at night.
