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!

Patagonia wilderness This is a fast and entertaining 8 day long riding safari in the wilderness of the Patagonian interior that is combined with a ride along the beaches and over the dunes of the Atlantic coast. You ride on two different properties belonging to one of the most hospitable Anglo-argentine families in the country. The two groups of horses that you ride during the trip are the best you can find on any private property in Argentina, while the ground is ideal for riding - sandy without holes or stones.
