Riding holidays in Namibia
We don't specialise in riding holidays in Namibia; however, we do know several great small guest farms and lodges that offer horseback riding. Namibia's stunning wilderness areas are great to explore on horseback.
You can build these into a flexible-fly-drive trip, and choose between rides that last from a couple of hours up to several days. Experienced riders can opt for multi-day riding trips, including sleep-outs at some places, whilst others offer riding lessons in a dressage arena or a lounging circle.
