About Jane

Welcome to Horseback Safaris.... my name is Jane, and for years and years I dreamed of riding in Africa. I have been fortunate in making good contacts in the area, and after several years' of riding in Africa I can now help others achieve their goal.

I was recently asked, "what's your passion in life?". There are three: horses, Africa and my partner, who isn't keen on horses but learnt to ride so we could enjoy horseback safaris together! He is now a regular rider at home too but given a choice he prefers the wide open spaces and freedom you get in Africa.

Life is too short to let it pass you by. How can you live your dream of riding in Africa with giraffe, elephants and zebra? Let me help by planning your safari to Africa!

Jane and Volter

I first travelled to Africa in 1990 and thatís when my love of the continent took hold. It can be a most relaxing and rewarding place to spend time, with friendly people, fantastic scenery, and the excitement of seeing wild animals. I visit several times a year and have been to most Southern and East African countries: you can see a slide-show of highlights from two decades of safaris!

I now work as a consultant for Safari Consultants and all bookings for Horseback Safaris are made through this established and well-known specialist agency. Riding safaris can be taken as stand-alone holidays or you may wish to spend some time before or after your riding adventure travelling to other game parks, flying on to Cape Town or simply relaxing on a beach.
