The African Horse Safaris Foundation has been set up by a group of passionate travellers, horse riders and conservationists. We’ve spent the last six years offering unparalleled horse-riding adventures across some of Africa’s most spectacular landscapes and want to do everything in our power to protect these incredible areas and the wildlife that calls it home.
Not only are our riding holidays exciting, vibrant and unforgettable experiences – they truly are life-changing. Responsible tourism is at the heart of the African Horse Safaris ethos. Just by traveling with us, our guests help fund conservation initiatives, uplift local communities and make a tangible difference in Africa’s wildlife, landscapes, and inhabitants.
We believe we can do more. Our team is dedicated to creating unique partnerships with travellers, corporates, and individuals across the globe. We want to raise funds to support conservation efforts and community initiatives across the continent, starting with the areas in which we ride. And of course, we’d like to get as many people as addicted to Africa as we are!
The Foundation supports sustainable community-led wildlife conservation initiatives across Africa. Whilst we are in the formative years, we are taking the lead from our operators, supporting programmes they endorse and are relevant to the areas where we ride. The majority of our operators have been living and working in these areas for decades and therefore know how we can provide the best support.
A percentage of each African Horse Safaris guest’s booking will go directly towards the foundation, with the option for each guest to match this contribution if they choose to. We’ll also have a secure portal where the public can donate directly the the Foundation and the causes we support.
We believe that this will create a great synergy with our clients as they will be able to see that their booking is making a tangible difference in the areas they are visiting.
The African Horse Safaris Foundation supports wildlife and biodiversity conservation, and the implementation of sustainable community development in the countries where we offer our horse riding holidays. We believe in supporting the local communities and preserving the landscapes and wildlife in the regions through which we ride for further sustainable and responsible travel.
