Riding holiday, riding safari and trail rides in Africa

Africa is the ultimate horse riding holiday destination. There are many different options for riding safaris, whether riding amongst the migration in Kenya, splashing through the Okavango Delta in Botswana or running with giraffe from a luxury lodge in South Africa. Africa also offers some of the best beach riding and trail riding holidays in the world - long canters along the South African Wild Coast, gallops across the Namib desert, trails through vineyards near Cape Town or trails to far-flung Lake Natron in Tanzania. Africa is a horse riders dream.

From the horse’s mouth

  • Ride from the highground to Madagascar's East Coast
    Jane, aged 58, FITZROY FALLS
    An extraordinary adventure in a starkly beautiful part of the world giving insight to both the high plains and the east coast (and the odd lemur!) from a viewpoint few will be able to experience. André's team were fantastic from start to finish and the horses I rode were fit, fun and so up to the job. Very special!

I would urge anyone thinking about it to just DO...

    It was a very well organised trip. What impressed me the most was Andre's ability to so smoothly come up with Plan Bs when the original plan for some reason did not go as planned. The staff was amazing and attentive. The food was so, so good. I would highly recommend this trip.

  • Ride from the highground to Madagascar's East Coast
    Charlotte, aged 69, HAREN
    After riding all over the world, I can truly say that the Madagascar ride was "something different"! Andre and his well-trained Fava Ranch horses hold a unique position in an otherwise almost horse-less country. All the children in the villages/hamlets ran to great us and follow us to the next village. Adults helped...
