Best safari and beach lodges for riding holidays in Tanzania
Between June and October, you can take advantage of superb riding holidays in Tanzania. Horseback riding in the Serengeti is a great way of exploring the landscape - you become a part of the herds and move along with them.
Ride over the endless plains bordering the Serengeti, get to know the remote areas of the Singita Grumeti Reserve and get up close to giraffe and zebra. However, note that riding here is only available for intermediate and more experienced riders: no beginners please! Seeing some of Tanzania's wilder areas from the saddle is a memorable experience!
