Dreaming about a horse safari but your friends and family are not keen on horse riding? We have just the thing! We’ve put together a collection of our favourite riding safaris which offer an unforgettable safari experience for those who are not quite as comfortable in the saddle.
While we would love to get everyone addicted to horse riding, we know not everyone is keen to leap onto the back of a horse. For couples or groups of friends of mixed ability, there is no reason to compromise on your horse riding holiday. We know it is equally important for non-riders to have an incredible safari experience. Most lodge-based rides can easily cater for families, couples, or groups of friends, where some ride and others do not. And even some of the riding guests like to have a break from the saddle and join the non-riders for other activities – The possibilities are endless!
Set-off on informative and exciting game drives in the Big 5 areas of South Africa, Botswana, and Kenya. Embark on a guided walk to take in the smaller creatures and hone your tracking skills. Spend an afternoon with the Massai warriors in Kenya. Board a traditional mokoro canoe and safari in the Okavango Delta or enjoy a thrilling helicopter flight over the wetlands. Get up close and personal with the meerkats in the Makgadikgadi pans and sleep out under the stars. Explore Egypt’s desert on a quad bike or take in the sights of Cairo or Luxor. And for the bicycle enthusiasts, how about cycling through the wilderness in South Africa, Botswana or Kenya?
We can also plan beyond your horse safari – how about gorilla trekking in Uganda, diving in Mozambique, hiking up Table Mountain or bungee jumping at Victoria Falls.
