Siduli Hide – 3 hours – U$60

Horse Riding – 3/5 hours – U$85/U$125 + U$15 park fee

Seeing wildlife from horseback is a MUST DO.  As a rider there is no better way to see animals close-up.  The animals treat you more like one of them, allowing you to get really close and they are comfortable with the horses resident to the area.  There are beautiful stretches of ground in which to have a canter and the ability to slowly pass by flora and fauna with a close eye on things.  To stop and observe, meander past impala or warthog grazing, or canter along the river’s edge.  It’s a special way to game view – often up pretty close to elephant, buffalo and take in the scenery like no other.
