Our helmet cam video of the week takes us to South Africa and Botswana for a thrilling safari from horseback!
When you get the opportunity to combine the trip of a lifetime in the African bush with world-class horseback riding, you definitely bring a helmet cam — for which we are all very grateful! On this African adventure, you’ll spot zebra, giraffe, lion and plenty of other large game, all from the back of a trusty steed. If this video doesn’t awaken your wanderlust, we give up.
According to uploader Sabina JM:
I had an amazing time in South Africa and Botswana with Horizon Horseback and Limpopo Horse Safaris. This is from the African Explorer Safari in Mashatu Game Reserve and Waterberg Reserve.
We’ve featured several videos and tales from mounted safaris in Africa before — if you want to learn more from a traveler’s perspective, we recommend checking out guest blogger Megan Barrett’s article “Safari From the Saddle: A Postcard From Africa.”
