Head to the Okavango Delta, the largest wetland in the world, for a breathtaking Botswana riding safari. The waterways and islands are home to a mind boggling wealth of wildlife. Seeing predators and prey interact from the back of horse is an extraordinary experience. Our favorite operators here, Okavango Horse Safaris and African Horseback Safaris, have access to many areas off limits to vehicles. Riding here allows you to explore faster and further, cantering with giraffe, splashing through reed lined channels alongside leaping lechwe, or stalking buffalo herds make these safaris truly exhilarating.
Far from this watery wonderland, the desert landscape of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans on the edge of the Kalahari Desert also offers an unforgettable riding experience. Vast salt pans, endless landscapes and good ground make a brilliant contrast to the Delta. We can also recommend some top notch riding safaris in the Tuli Block, along the banks of the Limpopo River, where you are likely to spot lion, leopard, elephant, wild dog and hyena.
Wherever you choose to ride in Botswana, we promise you well-schooled horses and expert guides so you can concentrate on enjoying the fantastic wildlife
and scenery all around you.
