Discover Africa on Horseback
 
Animals and birds can hear even the quietest of 4x4 vehicles approaching. They sound different, they smell different. So if you want to really get close to wildlife in Africa’s national parks, to refrain from disturbing it at all, you have to travel another way. Walking safaris are one of our favourite options - you see everything in incredible details, and it is completely environmentally friendly - but you might struggle to cover distances of any length in the heat.
Why, then, not discover Africa on horseback? You don’t need to be an accomplished horseman or horsewoman to spend a few hours in the saddle, but if you love the sensation of galloping across the savannah, the wind in your face, then there are opportunities for multi-day rides as well. Horses can travel beyond the tracks and roads, allowing you to roam freely in pursuit of the very best sightings. You can set your own pace, and as you are relatively high up, your field of view is significantly increased. What is more, you can enjoy your safari confident that your carbon footprint is kept to a minimum: horses eat the grass, their manure fertilises the land, and that’s it! A horseback safari is the ideal option for eco-conscious travellers.
