You probably don’t think about horse riding in Uganda, but a primate-focused safari in the country CAN encompass an equestrian experience. You can’t ride up to see gorillas, but you can arrange for a horseback safari in Lake Mburo National Park a day or so before or after.

The best ride in Mburo lasts about four to five hours on the four-kilometer-long Warukiri Range situated in the middle of the park. It boasts stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding hills and valleys, with a waterhole attracting buffalo and other mammals. A bonus is the unspoiled panorama of nine of the twelve lakes surrounding the park. The horseback safaris run all year round, but it is unlikely you would be gorilla hunting in the rainy season (March to May and September-October). Typical for safari riding, excursions begin either very early in the morning or in the evening, to increase your chances of seeing wildlife.  

Morning, full-day or multi-day rides can be arranged with Volcanoes Safaris.
