Would you like to get away from the crowd, or to go somewhere completely different and get back to basics?

At Equestrian Safaris we can take you into the remote African and Patagonian wilderness on horseback!

Explore spectacular and little known wilderness areas in the company of our experienced guides who are known for their personal approach and extensive knowledge of their areas and local culture.

These trips do not require a high level of horsemanship but you do need to have good balance, an OK level of fitness and a positive attitude always makes for new friends!
