This horse safari allows you to discover two South African countries: South Africa and Botswana. You will travel through the African bush and its magnificent wild fauna, and you will also be able to learn more about the rich history of these countries. You will be accommodated in tents on the ridges overlooking the grassy valleys. The tents are equipped with beds with sheets and duvets. Each tent has a shower with buckets. The second half of your horse safari takes you north of the Limpopo Valley in the Tuli Block region of Botswana. The trails here allow you to discover the bush and the famous Tuli sandstone formations. The region is famous for its elephants, but you will also discover impalas, giraffes, hyenas, lions, leopards and wild dogs. At Limpopo you stay at Two Camp Mashatus, a semi-permanent tent camp.

The Tuli Safari explores the banks of the Limpopo River within the Mashatu Reserve. Mashatu is a little known area but offers some of the most exciting game viewing in Africa. It’s particularly well known for large herds of elephant. The tree lined river courses which flow into the Limpopo River provide shade for eland, impala, wildebeest, kudu, waterbuck, giraffe and zebra, whilst at night the bat eared fox and African wild cat search for prey. The large impala population means there are many lion and leopard in the area as well as cheetah and wild dog. The Tuli Block also hosts over 350 bird species.

The Okavango Delta is undoubtedly the most outstanding of Botswana’s natural wonders, a 15,000 square kilometer wilderness of floodplain and forest interlaced with lagoons and waterways, and teeming with game and birds. A riding safari through this spectacular wetland sanctuary is an exciting and memorable experience for experienced horse riding enthusiasts with a passion of nature and international travel. Botswana is quintessential African wilderness: A vast country of savannah, desert, wetlands and salt pans, making it an ideal and varied safari destination. While nearly three quarters of the country is covered by the magnificent Kalahari Desert, yet in the north lies the Okavango Delta, the largest wetland delta in the world and an amazing contrast to behold. Botswana's huge wildlife populations make for some of the best game viewing in all of Africa. On the safaris here, you regularly encounter elephant, giraffe, buffalo, zebra and a multitude of other plains game and the big cats!

This epic adventure takes you to the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s great wildlife habitats. Home to elephant, hippo, leopard, lion, giraffe and wild dog, this is your chance to see some of the world’s most endangered species. And you’ll be riding right alongside them – on horseback.
Your days begin at sunrise, when the temperatures are cooler and the animals are most active. Your guide will decide the day’s route based on game sightings, water levels and guest preferences. One morning you could be tracking buffalo across the grassy plains. Another you could be watching a cackle of hyenas enjoy their prey.

The Kalahari Safari takes you into the Makgadikgadi salt pans, an ancient lake that dried up around 1500 years ago. The salt-encrusted pans are dotted with giant baobab trees and separated by palm covered sandy islands; the landscape is flat. The Pans offer some unique highlights – the chance to look for the shy brown hyena; to interact with meerkat families and take walks with indigenous bushmen, learning about how they survive in this harsh environment.

Ride over the 35,000 acre Borana ranch near to Mount Kenya, see a wide diversity of wildlife and stay in a truly luxurious lodge.

On morning, afternoon and all day rides, you can explore the length and breadth of the ranch and experience the excitement of viewing game from horseback.There is a good selection of horses to suit a wide range of riding abilities including children. Guest numbers are small and the guides will tailor the riding to suit everyone. There is plenty of faster riding for experienced riders.If you wish to take a break from riding then you might opt for a game drive, guided bush walk, mountain biking, perhaps a tandem paragliding experience (weather dependent) or simply relax by the pool and pamper yourself with a massage or beauty treatment.
