SAFARI IN THE SADDLE
Safari on horseback is an exhilarating experience and is a perfect way of getting so close to many wild species. From the saddle, you can count the eyelashes of a giraffe at close quarters. Botswana has a unique array of horseback adventures in the desert regions such as the Makgadikgadi Pans, the Kalahari as well as wet riding in the Okavango Delta.
Our top picks are African Horseback Safaris for the Okavango Delta and Ride Botswana for the Pans. We can even offer shorter rides from Royal Tree Lodge near Maun for the less experienced with Ride Botswana. And for something a little more edgy, Kalahari Horse Safaris would be an experience like no other.
And if you are heading to do some gorilla trekking in Uganda, for example, we recommend some sublime riding on beautiful thoroughbreds at Lake Mburo National Park in Uganda from Mihingo Lodge. It’s a perfect stop over half way between Entebbe and the home of the mountain gorillas in Bwindi.
