Living With Horses On Safari

Program Overview

Living with horses on safari

Where better to learn how to ride a beautiful horse than in the middle of the secluded African bush? Volunteers will surely have a unique nature experience, emphasising conservation of both animals and ecosystems, with activities like tracking, identification, horse and equipment handling, and much more. Our volunteers will gain immense knowledge, while having had an incredible and relaxing experience in one of Africa’s wildest areas.

Experience the African bush while on horseback! This program offers volunteers a chance to improve their equestrian skills while also going on exciting horseback safaris. Volunteers will take horses for a swim in a dam, gallop through the winding paths of the property, or take a quiet stroll through the bush, meeting impala and giraffe on the way. Each day riders will work hard on improving their riding skills through lessons with experienced riders. Lessons will focus on riding and jumping to improve volunteer’s comfort and riding ability.

In addition to the horseback safaris, volunteers will have an opportunity to experience the Big 5 on evening game drives at a local reserve.

Accommodation And Menu

Fall asleep to the sounds of the bush.

Volunteers live in comfortable chalets with three to four other volunteers and en suite bathrooms. Included in the accommodation is a separate kitchen, boma, and fireplace which overlooks a waterhole in the bush, where many animals come to drink.

Volunteers are provided with a fully stocked kitchen and will be responsible for preparing their own breakfast and dinner. A hearty lunch will be provided each day at the stables.
