Just How Tough is it?
These are semi-participatory safaris - you saddle and groom your own horse.
Do NOT underestimate the physical toll living outside 24/8 takes on you - come VERY Fit!
And Come Riding Fit - for your horses' sake! Please read our terms and conditions before booking, we are serious about our horse's well being. You have to be able to mount your horse from the ground un-aided
You need to be balanced in the saddle and stay off your horses' back without having to hang on to their mouth...at all paces, for up to 300 km!
The rewards for coming prepared for these challenging adventures far outweigh the effort involved in the preparation...it could change your life!
You might want to read guest's comments - many say it like it is....
Please not that none of our rides are suitable for beginners - here is a summary of each ride.
Namib Desert Safari is our most challenging requiring a technical scramble into and out of the Kuiseb Canyon - come fit! This is also our longest ride at 300 km
Damara Elephant Safari - not for the feint-hearted as large free-ranging game occurs, it's mountainous with meandering rivers and huge plains for fast riding
Desert Canyons Safari - meandering canyons means a slower place making this suitable for both intermediate and advanced riders but it has the most sublime plains for long, long slow canters.
Wild Horses Safari - the desert at its most beautiful - challenging crossing of the Namib dune sea - big, big plains for fast riding...and seeing the Namib's, the wild horses.
Exploratory Safari - only for repeat riders, please enquire for details
