Close on Horse!

It is hard to believe to see how close the riders can get to Giraffe, Zebra and many other antelopes on Pakamisa Game Reserve.

I am spending three days of my “off time” at the reserve taking images of the lodge, the reserve and the beautiful horses on their game trails.

For me it is the second time on Pakamisa, but I certainly will be back. Horseback safaris are a great addition to a South African safari experience as they provide very close encounters in an area without dangerous game.

Have a look at Pakamisa’s website:

PS: Unfortunately I cannot ride the Arab Horses at Pakamisa 😦 My portly figure is a bit to heavy for these beautiful creatures :-), so I took these pictures from a game vehicle.

  1. I really like this idea. I love horses and use to have some on my farm. I would think that the animals in the wild might not be as threatened by someone on horseback. I really love reading about what you do.

  2. Hi Christian! I think riding on a horse on an African safari would be AWESOME! It would combine my love of riding horses with the dream of seeing zebras and giraffes in the wild. Thanks for your pictures. I look forward to them everyday.
