Being on the back of an animal is not something that everyone enjoys, but for accomplished riders heading out into nature on horseback is great fun. A degree of elevation makes it easier to see what is going on and it really does create a sense of freedom and abandon to gallop through the African landscape. Rides are available for different skill levels.

And for those who fancy something a little different there is also the opportunity to ride on the back of a camel. If you thought horse riding was daunting or uncomfortable then, while camels are slower they are a lot more awkward - the dismount is particularly comment-worthy. Nevertheless it is a very memorable experience.
