Safari Enquiry

Breath in the aromas of the bush and feel the breeze in your hair during an adventure on horseback. Horseback safaris are one of the best ways to get close to the bush without being on foot. The freedom of riding a horse across the plains is absolutely exhilarating. While the more adventurous can enjoy several days of safari on horseback, those that are strapped for time can take a quick, half-day ride in the vicinity of the camp or lodge. Because horses aren’t seen as a threat, antelope and even animals, like lions and elephant, get much closer than they would to a group during a safari on foot. Horseback safaris are entirely safe. They take place in a completely controlled environment and the guides are knowledgeable and well-informed about the area.
