Do you love riding? One of the most exhilarating ways to explore Africa is on horseback.
Imagine galloping alongside the Great Wildebeest Migration in the Maasai Mara in Kenya. Picture trotting though the African bush, tracking a herd of elephants in Botswana. Whether you’re an experienced equestrian or a novice rider, going on a horseback safari in Southern Africa is a must for anyone.
As if you needed any more convincing, here are 5 reasons to plan an African horseback riding adventure.
1.Get closer to wildlife
When it comes to breathtaking wildlife, Africa is second-to-none. If you want to truly experience it, nothing compares to a horseback safari.
Because you can move along game trails with the animals, you can get much closer than you would by vehicle. To them, you’re simply another fellow grazer out for an peaceful stroll.
2.Go places unreachable by vehicle
One of the best things about a horseback safari is that you can access areas vehicles can’t reach. From horseback, you’ll experience South Africa in a way you never could on four tires.
Discover Africa the way it was meant to be, galloping along African savannas, cantering over rugged coastline, and wading through peaceful rivers—all atop your trusty steed.
