African Horseback Safaris

Okavango, Botswana


Join us on safari and ride with a herd of giraffe or zebra across the plains, track elephant or buffalo from island to island. Be part of this unique herd, cantering and splashing through lagoons of the Okavango Delta with lechwe or simply watch the setting sun whilst listening to the calls of lion and hyena.

The main attraction of a horse safari is the joy of riding good horses over superb country, with just about every landscape dotted with game. The riding is varied, sometimes quietly walking, stalking big game and admiring the bird life, sometimes cantering through the water-meadows alongside galloping giraffe and lechwe. There are over 40 horses at the camp with every one trained to meet your need on an African horse safari in the Okavango Delta.

Macatoo Camp is situated on the western side of the Okavango Delta. Covering 17,000 sq. km, the Okavango is the largest inland delta in the world; a mix of labyrinth channels, palm fringed islands and fertile floodplains.

Trapped in the parched sands of the Kalahari Desert, it is a magnet for the wildlife which depends on the delta's life-giving waters.

More than 400 species of resident and migrant birds, lions, elephant, hyenas, wild dog, buffalo, hippo and crocodiles congregate with a variety of antelope and smaller animals - warthog, mongoose, genets, monkeys and bush babies to name just a few.
