The care and dedication that goes into our string of over 60 horses is a credit to Barney and her team. The horses of Okavango Horse Safaris are chosen with temperament and suitability at the forefront. Many of the horses have either been sourced through close friends in Harare, Zimbabwe or are selected from well-known breeders in South Africa. Our team are made up of thoroughbreds and thoroughbred crosses, Arabians and Arabian crosses and Boerperds. In recent years we have carefully selected mares to join our team and using Lamu, an American Saddlebred, we are breeding more of our own horses now.
When not on safari the horses freely graze the grassy molapos of the delta through the day. They graze loose and this truly is one of the amazing sights you will see while on safari with us.
