OUR TOP RECOMMENDED HORSE RIDING SAFARI DESTINATIONS

 

SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa is frequently and aptly described as a “world in one country” or the “Rainbow Nation”. It is a land of enormous diversity worthy of exploration and discovery.

BOTSWANA

Botswana is a vast land of contrasts and is landlocked between South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia. This is a top class safari destination and a true wilderness area, untrammelled and essentially unchanged since time immemorial.

ZAMBIA

To explore Zambia is to step back into Africa as it was meant to be. Often described as the ‘real’ Africa, Zambia has been relatively untouched by humans and is famed for its huge protected wilderness areas, its natural landscapes and, arguably, the most diverse range of animals and birds in Africa.

NAMIBIA

Namibia is a land of extraordinary and unique landscapes - it is rugged yet fragile, barren yet beautiful, harsh but compelling, with clear and unpolluted skies. Namibia is astoundingly different from typical ‘bush’ Africa, but without doubt it is a gem waiting to be discovered.

KENYA

Kenya is the birthplace of the Safari and is how we all probably imagine Africa - rolling plains dotted with spreading acacia trees stretching into the shimmering distance and merging with the cobalt sky at the edge of the horizon.

TANZANIA

Tanzania is wild Africa with wilderness which has remained unchanged for aeons and a safari here is enriching and game viewing is regarded as some of the best, and least contrived, in Africa.
