Namibia Riding Safaris
Namibia is a fantastic country to explore on horseback. The riding is across sandy, easy going terrain and allows access to areas many people never get to see. The incredible panoramic views across vast open landscapes are some of the best in Africa.
Riding holidays for all abilities are available in Namibia and we can arrange multi-day camping trips for those looking for longer in the saddle or short rides from comfortable lodges for those wanting just a taster of African riding.
A Namibia Riding Safari – A Personal View
Riding through the wide, empty plains that surround Desert Homestead is quite unlike anything I’ve ever done before and I’d be surprised to find another ride that matches the experience of cantering across seemingly endless expanses of countryside.
There were just three of us on my sunset ride - the guide, another guest and me - and it felt as though we had the whole of Namibia to ourselves. We rode for several hours on fun horses stopping on top of a rocky hill for a sun downer, finally returning to the lodge around dusk. You may not see tons of game but the sheer space and stunning surroundings more than makes up for that - it truly is a wonderful place to ride.
