African Horseback Safaris are again most famous in Botswanas Okavango Delta. Imagine yourself mounted high above the long grass and reeds watching great herds of wildebeest and lechwe as they move across the golden floodplains. The breathtaking excitement when your silent progress along game paths only used by animals brings you upon a herd of buffalo or a family group of elephant.
Cantering alongside the elegant motion of a giraffe is an experience you will never forget and the only sounds you will hear, as the wind sighs through the grass and rattles the palms, are the fish eagle’s haunting cry, the splash of a disappearing crocodile and the faraway drumming of hooves.
As the blood red sun drops into the black of night, the hyena’s whoop-de-whoop and the lion’s roar accompany your fireside reverie and the hippo’s watery grunt punctuates your dreams. This is as close to nature as you will ever get.
