Riding holidays in Botswana

Best for riding in Botswana

There are a variety of options for riding holidays in Botswana, from quad biking across vast salt pans, to elephant-back adventures and more conventional rides on horseback. Riding in Botswana offers a unique way to see the countryside.

Whether exploring the Okavango Delta's floodplains and shallow reed-beds on the back of an elephant or the wide, dry grasslands of the Kwando-Linyanti area on horseback, riding in Botswana is a great way to get around these areas. Many of the camps occupy regions where the game densities are fairly moderate, but there is still every chance that you'll come across big game and you never know what's just around the corner.

If you're looking for a more isolated experience, a quad bike tour over the sparse landscape of the Kalahari's salt pans might be a great option for you. With less of a focus on big game, such rides cross a landscape that few will have witnessed before, making them a real adventure.
