Okavango Riding Safari

An unrivalled safari

A riding safari in the Okavango Delta is an unrivalled safari experience in itself. To combine it with a beach finish in Mozambique is beyond special - arguably one of the most exhilarating combinations on the planet.

Best time to go

in our opinion, June-October. The dry starts, water levels are perfect and wildlife viewing is at its optimum.

Tailored to you

Your safari will be tailored to you and you don't have to ride all the time, you can enjoy game drives, mokoro trips, fishing or even helicopter flights. And first class dining.

Ben Nelson

Led by talented guides, guests have 450,000 acres of pristine wilderness of the Okavango Delta to explore.

There is no better way to savour the Okavango Delta and experience its unparalleled wildlife population than on horseback. The annual flooding of the area leaves vast swathes of the Delta inaccessible to vehicles, making horses the most natural and exciting means to explore.

The pace of riding is varied; in between fast and thrilling gallops alongside giraffe, zebra and buck, in water and on land, we quietly stalk bigger game such as buffalo and elephant and take time to indulge in some of the best bird watching in the world.

Your experienced guides are full of fascinating stories about the ever-changing landscape, its trees and plants, and have an incredible ability to spot even the best-camouflaged wildlife.

If riding is not for everyone, this is not a problem. Many guests like to have time away from the saddle and take advantage of the wide range of other activities on offer.

Mozambique - the perfect beach finish! An exquisite piece of Indian Ocean paradise, Mozambique is a luxury beach holiday destination where time stands still.

The pearl of the Indian Ocean, Mozambique boasts 2,500 km (1,550 miles) of pristine beachfront on the mainland, with a string of beautiful and idyllic tropical islands, glittering like jewels in the warm, azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Soft, white sand beaches lined with coconut palms stretch as far as the eye can see.

Mozambique has remained an exclusive destination as many of its islands and mainland beaches are isolated and secluded, offering travellers the ultimate escape.

There are no golf courses or shopping malls here, but the unspoiled natural beauty and rich marine life have pushed the country to the top of the list for honeymooners, scuba divers and water sports fanatics.

Bazaruto Archipelago

Islands include Santa Carolina, Bangué, Benguerra Island, Magaruque, and Bazaruto.

Quirimbas Archipelago

Dotted along the Mozambican coastline are 32 idyllic islands that make up the Quirimbas Archipelago.
