Riding vacations

If you or your children love horseback riding or want to give it a go on vacation, we have a host of ideas that will give you the chance to live the life of a cowboy, gallop through the waves on a white sandy beach, or just take a few riding lessons somewhere seriously unexpected.

Imagine galloping through the grassy plains of the Maasai Mara alongside zebra or giraffe, splashing through the water lilies along the Okavango Delta, negotiating a winding path through the Andes, or trotting lazily through a picturesque landscape on your way to a lovely picnic lunch.

Whatever your equine daydream, we're here to plan your riding vacation, including riding safaris in Africa, whether it's a full-on multi-day ride or just a little saddle time sprinkled into a wider itinerary. We have ideas to suit all ages and abilities. Heck, we even organize camel rides!
