Belmond Safaris Botswana | A Horseback Safari Experience With Jodie Kidd
Belmond partners with British Equestrian Polo Player and International Fashion Model, Jodie Kidd to host an exclusive 6-night Horseback safari in the breathtaking wilderness of Botswana from 25th September to 1st October 2018 at Belmond’s intimate lodges, Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge and Belmond Eagle Island Lodge.
From the remote Savute region where large herds of elephants and mighty prides of lions abound, to the watery wonderland of the Okavango Delta; the horseback safari offers the opportunity to experience the rich wildlife and landscape from many angles. When not in the saddle, guests can take a birds-eye view in a helicopter safari with views across the vast expanse of wilderness or get close to the wildlife in open-vehicles.
Jodie accompanies guests on wildlife adventures each day following a glorious sunrise breakfast at each lodge. A traditional Botswanan Boma dinner is served at Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge, where guests can settle around the campfire to exchange stories of the day. An evening sunset cruise along the majestic and glistening waters of the Delta is also offered for guests at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge.
“Horses are incredible animals and being able to ride them through Botswana will be a truly breath-taking experience, not only for the riders but also for the horses” – Jodie Kidd
With an international fashion career working for brands such as Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent as well as being British Show jumping and Polo Player, Jodie Kidd possesses a perfect blend of elegance and adventure.
