Any horse riding adventure in Africa will, without doubt, be epic. However, there are some rides that should really be classed, not only as adventures, but epic expeditions. Expect thrilling riding over ever-changing terrain, long hours in the saddle and a new four-legged equine team.
An increasing number of intrepid equestrian adventurers are adding an African horse safari to their ultimate bucket list. For experienced riders, dreaming of following in the hoof-beats of the original explorers, there is no better way to experience the magic of Africa than on horseback. Imagine exhilarating treks over vast distances with the chance of riding alongside Africa’s unique wildlife. These epic adventures offer long, exciting days in the saddle covering some of Africa’s most untouched and challenging landscapes and testing your riding ability.
Exploring on horseback means you can ride in areas where no vehicles can reach, and often where few people have seen. The sense of achievement at the end of the riding holiday is indescribable – knowing you and your horse have covered an incredible distance together as team. Besides the adventure-of-a-lifetime, your horse will be your new best friend, and it is not uncommon that tears have been shed on the departure day.
