Riding Policy:

African Bush Sense caters to all levels of riders, from the complete beginner to the most experienced and riding lessons are available. We take all ages, however, children under the age of 4 can only enjoy short pony rides around the lodge rather than riding out in the bush.

There is no better way to enjoy the bush and experience its vast wildlife population than on horseback. Our aim is to give you a fun-filled riding safari of a lifetime, however, safety is of paramount importance and you will be required to sign an indemnity form which includes certain guidelines while out on horseback. You must be fully aware and understand that there are risks involved when around horses, in riding generally, and in visiting and staying in areas of Africa due to the presence of wild animals.

By signing our indemnity form you are confirming that you are riding on our safaris entirely at your own risk and that you have adequate insurance for all eventualities (ensure your insurance policy covers riding safaris and medical evacuation). It is compulsory to wear a riding helmet and although we have a selection of sizes, we do recommend that, if you have your own well fitted hat, to bring it with you.

If you plan to spend many hours in the saddle, we recommend that you do some riding prior to your visit, in order to avoid aching muscles.

We have a weight limit of 120 Kgs..

We take a maximum number of 6 guests out on any ride. Different riding abilities will not be mixed unless they choose to do so. The duration of each ride is determined by you as a guest and full day rides are available.
