Horseback Riding in Botswana

Horseback riding in Botswana allows you to experience all that this magnificent land has to offer. Botswana is the immortal heart of the splendidly desolate and roadless Kalahari Desert. This wild land consists of endless savannahs, dunes, ephemeral lakes and salt pans.

This is the land of the Bushmen, those ancient nomads who have lived since the stone age in the extreme conditions of the Kalahari, leaving little trace of their habitation beyond poignant etchings in stone.

Botswana is also known for the awe-inspiring Okavango Delta — the world’s largest inland delta, which teems with animals and birds, and justly deserves its reputation as the Jewel of Africa.
