Horse back safari
"In riding a horse, we borrow freedom" — Helen Thompson
With its gentle pace and close proximity to nature, a horse back safari is another excellent option for experiencing the African bush. This unique experience combines the pleasure of riding with the adventure of an African safari, giving you close access to the scenery and wildlife of the African bush. Wild animals are less afraid of the shape and smell of a horse and therefore grant them (and you on top of them) much closer quarters than you would normally achieve in a game vehicle. Imagine riding alongside a herd of giraffe or in the middle of a herd of impala or wildebeest. No matter your level of skill, this option is open to both beginners and advanced riders as you will be assigned a well-trained horse to suit your level. Here, horse and rider become one with the environment and horse lovers and first timers alike should not miss this unique opportunity.
But it is not just in the wild African bush that you can experience the freedom that comes from riding a horse... the word "safari" is actually the Swahili word for journey. So take an exhilarating horse back journey through the mountains, along the beach or anywhere your faithful stead will lead you!
