Ride with Lucinda Green through Botswana's extraordinary Makgadikgadi Salt Pans
We have teamed up with Lucinda Green, former world champion eventer and six time Badminton
winner to host a stunning riding safari across Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in December. Crossing
this truly exceptional landscape with its vast pans, sprawling woodlands and grassy islands at the
height of the migration season – the area is awash with zebra, wildebeest, hartebeest and ostrich
and the attendant predators – will be an unforgettable riding experience. Leaving the horses for the
occasional game drive you can track the elusive brown hyena and search for meerkat families, one of
the Kalahari’s most fascinating inhabitants. Until now riding in Botswana has been in the watery paradise
that is the Okavango Delta but this holiday opens up a whole new world of habitat and scenery and
is totally different to anything currently available.
