Welcome To Our Horseback Adventures

Rides On The Wild Side, based in Maun, Botswana, is the only specialist and dedicated Horseback Travel Agency in Africa.

What We Do

If you love horses like we do we have an adventure for you...

We have something for everyone: wildlife-oriented rides, cultural and historical tours on horseback, pioneering mobile type adventures and wild beach gallops and escapades. There are rides to suit all, whether you are a confident and athletic rider or a more relaxed trail-style rider.

Rides on the Wild Side will connect you as a horse rider & enthusiast to the horseback riding experience that matches your ability, fitness, budget, time constraints and dreams.

There is a whole world to explore with Rides on the Wild Side and travelling the world on horseback offers a unique perspective and experience that you simply don't find on conventional safaris.

We regularly accompany our riders and groups assuring the smooth running of your adventure. There is no limit to the number of guests required for this service.

Why us?

This Is Why....

Situated in the heart of the finest safari country puts us in the perfect position to have up to the minute information on all aspects of the conditions in Botswana and the entire African region. Our long standing partnerships worldwide are steeped in years of collaboration and therefore the knowledge & experience Rides On The Wild Side has collected is unrivalled.

Our policy has always been to only promote rides that we ourselves have either experienced or know well. All our horseback safaris are either owned or run by longstnding professionals in this specialist arena of horseback safaris and are also our friends and colleagues.

Our primary aim is to create a horseriding itinerary which will exceed your expectations.

What We Can Do For You...

Rides on the Wild Side will create your entire, personalised travel itinerary around the focal point of the horse-riding element.

We thrive on organising your tailor-made itinerary to include other destinations of importance. We also offer extraordinary and exciting itineraries for those who prefer not to ride, whether in conjunction with family and friends who are riding, or as a completely separate and distinct holiday.

Our specialist attention to detail and bespoke personalised service is part of our service and need not "break the bank".

We work with handpicked partners worldwide to offer you the experience of your dreams: whether it be extreme adventure in the Andes or a gentle trail through a private game reserve.

We are delighted to accompany you and your group if you wish, or to book you on an independent holiday. If you don't see a destination that you wish to visit featured on the site, please contact us.
