HORSEBACK SAFARIS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA 

Horseback safaris in the Okavango Delta 

There is no better way to savour the Okavango Delta and experience its unparalleled wildlife population than on horseback. What horse safaris really bring to the table though, is the ability to go where neither human nor car can easily reach, especially during the annual flooding of the Delta when vast swathes of the area are inaccessible to vehicles.

Like walking safaris, on horseback you’ll feel a connection to the wild of Africa, but with the advantage that many animals are more relaxed in the presence of the horses. Like a traditional safari, you get ease of transport and a can travel greater distances, but without the noise of an engine.

The pace of riding is varied; in between fast and thrilling gallops alongside giraffe, zebra and buck, in water and on land, you’ll also stalk bigger game such as buffalo and elephant, and take time to indulge in some of the best bird watching in the world.
