Property Details

The camps

Okavango Horse Safaris — a Botswana-based horse safari — comprises two semi-permanent camps and a fly camp, perfect for the experiential traveler.

First, six Meru-style tents with en suite bathrooms make up Kujwana Camp on the Xudum River. Ancient forests surround the camp, and guests can spot wildlife from the tree house that overlooks the river. Moreover, the main area features a fully stocked bar.

Okavango Horse Safaris also offers Mokolowane Camp situated on the Matsebi River northwest of Kujwana. Mokolowane’s five comfortable tree houses are lifted 10 feet above the ground to provide spectacular views across the waters. Surrounded by fig, jackalberry, wild mangosteen, and ilala palm trees, the tree houses charm guests with their simplicity. Each one features 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.

Lastly, the remote Fly Camp sets up in the southeast part of the concession and is rustic, with bucket showers and a bush toilet. Mosquito-netted bedrolls look out over the Qwaapo River and mopane forests, and wild dog sometimes den in the area.

The activities

Okavango Horse Safaris combines the very best luxury tented camping experiences with unforgettable game viewing from the unique vantage on horseback. Staff cook fresh meals every day, with an emphasis on vegetables and salads, as well as freshly baked bread. 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. Alternatively on full day rides, enjoy a picnic and siesta in the bush before riding back to camp for sundowners. Book your Botswana horse safari experience today!

A note on experience levels

Okavango Horse Safaris requires riders meet certain skill and competency levels, as well as a weight restriction. Riders must also be comfortable riding either English-style or South African trail saddles. If a party member does not meet these requirements, non-riding activities will be arranged. A detailed riding profile must be completed for each guest when booking.
