Would you like to get away from the crowd, or to go somewhere completely different and get back to basics?

At Equestrian Safaris we can take you into the remote African and Patagonian wilderness on horseback!

Explore spectacular and little known wilderness areas in the company of our experienced guides who are known for their personal approach and extensive knowledge of their areas and local culture.

These trips do not require a high level of horsemanship but you do need to have good balance, an OK level of fitness and a positive attitude always makes for new friends!

Rio puelo Close to the Pumalin Park there is a green verdant valley where the crystal clear Puelo river makes its way to the Pacific Ocean from the high peaks of the Andes. Along the way it enters and leaves some beautiful lakes, on one of which we get to stay on a private island for two nights. This is a ride of great scenic beauty that will appeal to all riders from novices to experienced horsemen.
