Horseback Safari


Horseback Safari tours are for guests who love wildlife and are looking for a new adventure. These rides take guests on a journey along the beautiful landscapes of the Wilds overlooking our rolling hills, grasslands and butterfly habitat. You may have an opportunity to view animal species roaming in large natural settings.
Tours are approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour in length where the view of our breathtaking landscapes and safari areas are amazing. Both novice and experienced riders will enjoy this unique ride! Before or after your Horseback Safari, enjoy a visit to the Wilds’ Gift Market and Overlook Café or stroll through the Wilds’ Butterfly Habitat.


Non Member: $30 per person
Wilds Member: $25 for Wilds members

*Advance reservations are recommended as space is limited. Horseback Safaris typically run rain or shine. For the safety of our guests and horses, Wilds staff will determine whether rides will occur daily. Extreme heat, severe storms or a slippery trail due to excessive rain are all safety concerns and may cause a postponement or cancellation of rides. If the Wilds postpones or cancels the ride guests will be offered to reschedule or to participate in another tour.  We recommend comfortable footwear and casual clothing (dress for the weather). Closed-toe shoes required (sandals and flip-flops not permitted).
