Combined safari in South Africa and Bostwana

The African Explorer is one of the most varied African safaris, as it goes to two countries in one trip and covers a range of different topography and terrain, combined with excellent and wide ranging game viewing.

The South African bushveld is soft going for the horses, with wonderful sandy tracks to canter along and beautiful blue dams to swim with your horse.

In Botswana there is an ancient landscape of rock formations, and open plains dotted with giant Baobab trees and riverine bush. This place feels very wild and will definitely get your adrenaline flowing.

Fixed dates throughout the year
Experienced riders only
Amazing value

 

The African Explorer is probably one of the most varied African safaris, as it goes to two countries in one trip and covers a lot of different topography and terrain. The South African bushveld is soft going for the horses, with wonderful sandy tracks to canter along and beautiful blue dams to swim with your horse.

Riding Level: Advanced intermediate to experienced. Must be able to independently control a horse at all paces. Jumping – the ability to jump natural obstacles is a benefit, but not essential as these can be ridden around. Must be able to take a light seat at canter.

Riding Test: Riding ability is assessed in South Africa and riders will also take a short riding test in Botswana to confirm they are competent enough for this leg of the safari, and fall into the above guideline. The decision of the manager conducting the test is final.
