Horse riding holidays and safaris in South Africa

The Horizon Horseback portfolio offers fantastic affordable horse riding holidays and safaris in South Africa. These holidays can be enjoyed separately or combined to make a wonderfully varied African horseback vacation.

Horizon Horseback was established in 1993 and is based in the malaria free Waterberg Biosphere Reserve in northern South Africa. This is an unspoilt part of the country with varied topography, from bushveld savannah to rocky outcrops and mountains. Over the years we have developed a collection of horse riding safaris which offer not only close encounters with game but also a diverse range of other rewarding riding experiences: polocrosse, western games, jumping, cattle mustering and swimming with your horse.

Safaris in Africa are an intimate experience: there is simply no better way of taking in the African bush, than by horseback. Becoming part of a herd of zebra as they canter across the plains, or quietly approaching a browsing giraffe or basking hippo is a truly amazing feeling. Africa is a very special place, but Africa on horseback is truly magical.
