best riding safari in Africa

Horizon Horseback was voted the Best Riding Safari in Africa in 2016, 2018, and 2019. The key ingredient of any riding safari is the quality of the horses. Our safari horses have been hand selected for their endurance, courage and responsiveness. Our horses are at ease with each other and within their environment, which generates calm and contented natures. As a result, we can offer our guests responsive, subtle and honest rides.

Each day brought forth new and wondrous sightings and discoveries. We tracked elephant , lion and leopard and enjoyed close encounters with hyena, jackals and an abundance of wart hogs, to name but a few! An absolutely mesmerising experience.
