BOTSWANA

Botswana is considered one of the most exclusive riding safari destinations in Africa. This timeless land is typically defined by the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert. The combination of these landscapes, provides riders with vast stretches of diverse wilderness teeming with wildlife, making it a prime contender for top riding holiday destination.

Confident, experienced riders will delight in fast gallops through the maze of lagoons, islands and channels of the world's largest inland delta. The seasonal floodplains are perfect to explore on horseback, with expert guides on hand to provide you with once in a lifetime opportunities to ride with elephant, zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe, hippo and kudu. Sociable evenings spent in luxury tented camps, ensure that these holidays are ideal for both singles and groups.

Lying to the south east of the Delta, discover the largest salt pans in the world, remnants of the ancient magnificent Lake Makgadikgadi. Stay in opulent camps and ride fit spirited horses deep into the pans, spotting desert fauna such as meerkat and hyena. The open, flat expanse of the pans, interspersed with enormous baobab trees are ideal for long pacey canters and gallops.

Bordering Zimbabwe to the east, and criss-crossing the great Limpopo River, The Tuli Block, offers an entirely different but nonetheless challenging terrain, with steep descents, and exhilarating gallops meandering through dense bush, jumping small obstacles and ditches. Ride quality horses through the magnificent Mashatu Reserve here, overnighting in simple tented camps or luxurious lodges. From centre based stays to mobile safaris, Botswana is unequivocally one of the ultimate and most unforgettable riding safari destinations.

“We had a lovely week here. The riding was great and it was good to be in a quiet rural area, away from the touristy areas.”
