Enjoy three unique properties and experience the thrill of riding alongside giraffe and zebra in the Okavango Delta in a private concession of over 2,500 square kilometers. Over 60 horses are based at Okavango Horseback Safaris with mostly thoroughbreds and thoroughbred crosses, Arabians and Arabian crosses, and Boerperds. Each horse is hand-selected for each rider before your Botswana Okavango Delta safari.
Okavango Horse Safaris – a Botswana horse safari – has two semi permenent camps and a fly camp for the experiential traveler.
Six Meru tents with ensuite bathrooms make up Kujwana Camp which is set along the Xudum River and surrounded by forests of ancient trees. Check out the game from the treehouse that overlooks the river and enjoy the fully stocked bar in main area.
Mokolwane Camp is situated northwest of Kujwana on Matsebi River. Mokolwane’s five comfortable tree houses are lifted 10 feet above the ground to provide spectacular views across the Mwaters. Surrounded by fig trees, jackalberrys, wild mangosteens, and ilala-palms, each lodge is charming in simplicity, with mosquito netted beds and en-suite bathrooms with showers, flush toilets, and hot and cold running water. Guests enjoy leisurely meals in the communal dining room, raised on a wooden platform with views of the wandering elephant and hippo in the pools below.
The remote Fly Camp is located in the southeast part of the concession and is a traditional safari camp with bucket and pulley showers and a bush toilet. Tents have views of the Qwaapo River and mopane forests, and there is a wild dog den close to camp.
Okavango Horse Safaris combines the very best luxury tented camping experiences with unforgettable game viewing from the unique vantage on horseback. Meals are cooked fresh, with an emphasis on vegetables and salads, and guests enjoy fresh bread baked each day. Riders spend between four and six hours on horseback during the morning then spend the afternoons swimming, floating in a mokoro, walking, or on a traditional game drive. On the days that are spent riding all day, enjoy a picnic and siesta in the bush before riding back to camp for sundowners. Book your Botswana Horse safari experience today!Request Information
