To be on horseback in the bush is to feel as if you are one of the animals, walking (or galloping) through the African bush is not just for advanced riders. There are opportunities – even for those never on a horse before – to feel the giant size of a giraffe as you approach on horseback. It is breathtaking, and special. For those passionate equestrians with at least intermediate level experience, a few destinations offer multi-day rides covering great distance and with close encounters of all kinds. The remote concessions just outside the parks are ideal for horse riding as they offer large open spaces and safe game viewing.
