Luxor

Day Trips

There are a wealth of riding options, from cantering along the Nile to watching water buffalo graze along its lush green banks. Travel through the villages on horseback or gallop along the banana and sugar cane fields in the sunshine. Longer trips visit the deserts and of course no Luxor experience would be complete without a visit to the Temples on horseback.

Our facilities are located on the West Bank. It’s quirky and it’s real Egypt. The horses have a fabulous life, there are several well maintained boxes, although most live out in huge lush green paddocks with mountain views (and who can blame them!).

Meet some of the proud and gracious stallions in the stables, whose skin is shot with copper or steel glitter in the sun. You cannot help but smile while watching funny, cute donkeys, who even follow you checking your pockets in case you have carrots. Early morning, empty picturesque roads and you with a horse. feel as the hero of famous ‘Mummy’ discovering the city of the dead.

We cater for all levels of rider, from first time beginners and children, to the intermediate and more advanced. Helmets and safely equipment are provided as standard to all guests, and transfers are very easily arranged either by motorboat or Taxi. Non horse riders can also take an alternative excursion by camel, or groups of horses and camels are a fun option too.
