Botswana Riding Safaris
Botswana horseback riding is fast and exhilarating, great for experienced riders. It features and enormous, empty country filled with savannah, desert, wetlands, salt pans and huge amounts of game. Botswana offers some of the best game viewing in Africa.
In the Okavango Delta you can experience top-of-the-range riding safaris within the largest wetland in the world or ride along the banks of the Limpopo River in the drier Tuli Block.
All of the horses at the camps are well trained allowing you to get extremely close to fantastic wildlife. Both destinations are lush with game to provide you with a once in a life time African riding safari vacation.
A Botswana Riding Safari – A Personal View
To have the chance to ride as part of a longer trip visiting camps in Botswana was an exceptional opportunity. African Horseback Safaris run riding holidays in the Abu concession within the vast Okavango Delta. They have a variety of highly fit and responsive horses to suit any ability.
The guiding is outstanding and galloping alongside giraffe is a fantastic memory as is swimming the horses through the narrow waterways in search of game. African Horseback Safaris’ base camp, Macatoo, is simple but very comfortable although a night's fly camping is a lovely alternative in a longer stay
