Horse Riding Adventures in Jinja – Explore Jinja – Uganda Adventure Travel.

Horse Riding Adventures in Jinja. Horse riding through the rural villages of Jinja gives you a lifetime opportunity to see real Uganda, which includes not only the stunning beauty of the river Nile and rural areas but also the village homes, workplaces, trading centers, and lives of people who live around the area. While riding, you may be lucky and see wildlife (birds and monkeys on our rides) but horse-riding tours are not wildlife safaris, they are a snapshot of real-life Africa including all aspects both positive and negative. All rides finish with a stunning 1km trail along the Nile. On longer rides of 2 hours, you can also experience the views from the hills overlooking the Nile Valley and move through the stunning sugar and tea plantation.

The Jinja horse riding Adventure is operated by the Nile Horse Back Safaris offering a range of rides catering for first-timers to advanced riders. Most of the rides are private rides with only your group on the tour.

The adventure is open between 10 am and 4 pm every day unless you have pre-booked trips outside these hours. Bookings are offered for our 1hr, 1.5hr sunset, and 2hr rides so horses and guides are available when you arrive.

85kg is the rider weight limit for introductory safaris and an 80kg limit for longer rides. This is implemented for rider safety and also for the welfare of the horses. Every safari is taken care of by multiple guides to accommodate those that may want to try going faster and to also allow others to stay within their comfort zone.

The Horses.

There is availability of a range of sizes and breeds to suit everyone from beginners to advanced skill levels.  The horses come to northern Kenya when they are aged between 1 year and 3 years. The horses are trained for about a year before the guides begin to ride them and at least a year and a half before clients ride them. They are taken care of by a professional vet from South Africa twice every year and occasionally monitored by a local vet regularly. The horses are kept in immaculate condition and are trained in competition disciplines as well as being safari horses. They are well-behaved, safe, and bomb-proof, making them a pleasure to ride.
