For a breathtaking horseback safari, those on holiday need to look no further than Namibia in Africa. Riding through the terrain on a horse, visitors will have a chance to experience breathtaking views, while riding through some prehistoric desert terrain. If you want lush land full of animals, other areas would be better. This area is very dry and does contain some wildlife, but the experience is why many people choose to come this way. Adventures here are long distance and require the right breed of horse to make it through the hot desert sun.

Many of the professional safari companies will give you a chance to ride breeds like Nooidgedacht, Trakehners and the South African Basuto. These are strong, calm breeds that can handle the Namibia terrain with ease. Keep in mind that different horseback safari providers will have their own unique breeds of horses.
