MOZAMBIQUE HORSE SAFARI

Trip Location: AFRICA

Mozambique

MOZAMBIQUE HORSE SAFARI

The coastline around Vilanculos has some of the best scenery in the whole of Mozambique with white sandy beaches that stretch for tens of kilometres - perfect for sun bathing but better for an exhilirating gallop! You can race for ages along these beaches with no fences or crowds of people on beach mats to stop you.

This trip is based at a lodge on the Vilanculos coast. From here you have to opportunity to ride out on different trips exploring the surrounding area. You can gallop along the beaches, enjoy excellent views from view points along the coast, travel to nearby Benguerra Island for a ride or ride down to the local fishing viallge to meet the local people. This is a flexible trip so, should you feel like you need to take a day off to nurse any sore muscles, you can and there are numerous other activities to keep you amused from sunbathing to scuba diving.

Quite apart being a brilliant holiday if you love to ride, there is a fascinating story behind how this trip came to exist. It was set up with horses rescued from the farm invasions in Zimbabwe and then taken to safety in Mozambique. So a great holiday and an inspiring history to boot!

Mozambique is a beautiful country with a mix of African, Portugese and Arabic influences. This makes for a vibrant and interesting cultural mix. The landscape is stunning and exploring it all by horse makes for an unforgettable trip.

    It doesn't get much better than this - doing the sport you love on one of the world's last unspoilt coastlines. Worth every minute of the travel getting there and every penny.

    Our 5 children will never forget Granny's 70th birthday. Around the campfire in the middle of nowhere, singing and dancing with our Samburu guides. Thank you.

    Kat has always dreamed of seeing the rare Mountain Gorillas. So we'll never forget the hour we spent with these extraordinary 'relatives'. What a wonderful safari you organised.

    Everything we hoped for on our first family safari came true. And more. But it was the guides you recommended who really made it so memorable. We'll return.
