Why choose Aardvark Safaris for your African riding adventure?

We have been organising epic riding safaris to Africa for over 25 years and pride ourselves on tailoring the perfect riding holiday for our clients. Lucinda, Jo, Alice and Francis are all confident riders and have a wealth of experience and knowledge of riding in Africa.  You can’t beat cantering alongside an elegant giraffe or amongst the great wildebeest migration, it’s a thrill that will stay with you for life.  

Top 10 reasons to book an African riding holiday with Aardvark Safaris

1. Tailor-made

Our specialty is tailormade trips, we take the time to understand what you need and want from your holiday to ensure we plan the perfect riding safari for you. We can tailor-make your holiday from beginning to end, by including some additional African travel or time at the beach. We can request specific horses and guides to suit your needs.

2. Riding safari experts

Our team of riding safari experts travel every few months to experience all the rides we offer first-hand, and to re-visit old favourites too. It is only by spending this time on the ground (or on the horse in this case), that we can be sure we are offering you the best advice.

10. African experts

We only operate in Africa, it sounds obvious, but we are one of very few riding safari operators that focus on Africa alone, which means our attention is solely aimed at finding the best rides in the continent to offer our clients.
