Horse riding trails in southern Africa are as diverse as the terrain.
You can take a brisk canter along a beach, an amble through vineyards,
a fast ride across sweeping grasslands or a meander through magnificent
mountain scenery. From the Okavango Delta in Botswana to the Northern
Cape Province in South Africa we can arrange for a safari on horse back
that will suit your ability level and time you want to spend on the trail.
Southern Africa is a mecca for birding enthusiasts. From the Okavango
Delta in Botswana to several areas in South Africa you will be amazed
at the number and variety of species that call this lovely area home.
Let us know your particular interests and we will custom design a safari
with an expert ornithologist if you wish and place you in areas where
you have the best chance of finding the species you most want to see.
Southern Africa is home to many different cultures. Would you like
to spend a few days in the company of a San Bushmen as they teach you
their way of life in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana? You will sleep
in traditional huts and learn how to use local plants and wildlife for
cooking and medicinal purposes. The women will teach
you how to prepare food using their very basic techniques
and the men will invite you on a traditional hunt.
Or perhaps you would like to experience Cape Town’s
vibrant past and present. You can visit Robben Island, South Africa’s
first World Heritage Site. Led by ex-inmates of the political prison,
your visit takes on a personal aspect. You will see the tiny cell that
was Nelson Mandela’s home for more than 17 years. From there visit a
community development project, savor local food at a township restaurant
and meet the locals.
