Riding with herds of zebra in Botswana on a riding safari

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.
