The nomadic herdsmen ride – with eagles in hand – to their annual festival and if you are a guest of Lightfoot Travel you can join them
Saddle up and hit the trails for an equine adventure that you’ll never forget
The One In The Masai Mara
Join Offbeat Safaris for a hack with a difference. Ride out with the team through the Kenyan bush and spy giraffes and elephants along the way. Enjoy a picnic enroute, then hunker down around a campfire after dinner to swap stories with your fellow riders.
The One Where You Ride Through A Delta
Possibly the most glamorous way to cool off during a ride. African Horseback Safaris will take you on a journey through the Okavango Delta in Botswana. You’ll have more than 50 horses to choose from for your African adventure. And after a day in the saddle you will be able to relax at Macatoo Camp. You can catch some rays on your own private deck or take a dip in the resort’s pool. If your partner doesn’t ride, they can still enjoy this safari (just in a 4WD).
The One On The Mongolian Plains
Fancy riding with some of the best horsemen in the world? Then how about joining the Golden Eagle Hunters for a journey across the plains of Mongolia? Each year, the nomadic herdsmen ride – with eagles in hand – to their annual festival and if you are a guest of Lightfoot Travel you can join them. This is definitely one for the bucket list.
The One Where You Ride Across The Andes
Join your sure-footed steed at Estancias Huechahue in Argentina and go on a 10-day ride across the Andes to Chile. Expect your jaw to regularly drop as you journey through the most breathtaking scenery. Spy open plains, mountains, forests and volcanoes on this phenomenal ride. As you would expect, it’s not for beginners. You need to be able to handle seven hours in the saddle and cope with cantering speed. If you can do that, boy, are you in for a treat.
