A horseback safari in Botswana is considered by many the crème-de-la-crème of horse riding safari holidays.
Botswana is one of the best places on earth to head out on safari and immerse yourself in true, unspoilt wilderness. With incredibly diverse ecosystems, Botswana boasts an incredible diversity of wildlife. Exploring this wilderness on horseback is exhilarating, and your first encounter with a herd of elephants will leave you awe-inspired! Not only will you find these gentle giants, but rarer species such as leopards, wild dogs, brown hyenas and lechwe are also commonly seen on horseback.
Horse riding in Botswana will stay with you forever. The guiding, accommodation and, most importantly, the horses available in Botswana are exceptional! The horse riding safaris offered are as varied as you could imagine – Taking you from harsh desert lands to delta wetlands and beyond! The riding here is fast-paced and incredibly exciting, with some horseback safaris even offering the chance to jump elephant-felled logs. On horseback, the game viewing is exceptional, and you can traverse areas seldom seen by any other human. With unforgettable game drives, photographic safaris and mokoro rides for non-riding partners or those who want a break from the saddle, Botswana has earned its place at the top of many riders’ bucket lists.
