Without a doubt Africa has some of the world’s most exciting and interesting riding vacation opportunities in the world. An African horseback riding safari through the world’s best wild game country is an experience to be remembered for a lifetime. Many parts of Africa are still wide open for riding and one can spend a week in the saddle without crossing a fence line or a paved road. Interacting on horseback with wild game like giraffe, zebra, Cape buffalo and many kinds of antelope is fascinating. There are plenty of opportunities for thundering gallops and some fine saddle horses. Contact with colorful local tribesmen like the Masai in Kenya and Tanzania is an added treat. Visiting game country while horseback riding in Africa is much more in harmony with nature than doing it by vehicle
