2009 PRICE LIST and Information sheet
A horseback safari provides the ideal way to explore the Nile up close, see a traditional Ugandan village and view the fantastic panorama from the hills overlooking the Nile River valley. The landscape is spectacular, you will be in awe of the beauty of the area around the source of the River Nile. We offer both short (2hr, 3hr) safaris and longer overnight and multi-day horse safaris. For our shorter horse safaris no riding experience is necessary. We can accommodate up to 10 riders per safari. Two or more guides accompany our safaris. Safari groups have the opportunity to temporarily separate at certain points on the safari allowing more experienced riders to ride at a more advanced pace and those not so confident to stay within their comfort zone.
Please Note: We ride with English saddles not western saddles as often used in North and South America.
2 hour ride (minimum) 90,000 Ush/pp approximately US $50
