Our Signature Safari
Our Vintage Horse Safaris operate on the eastern boundary of Hwange National Park and cater for multi- day safaris up to five nights from the gorgeous Vintage Horse Camp. During these unique and highly exclusive excursions, visitors can expect to see four of the big five as well as a huge variety of plains game and birds. Because the safety of our guests and horses is our number one priority, our multi- day safaris are designed for fit, confident and experienced riders and are all led by top Zimbabwean guides and trackers.
Riding terrain varies between teak and acacia forests to open savanna grasslands, seen from the trusty backs of our herd of twenty two well- loved, schooled and cared for safari horses.
Boasting a glamorous take on a bygone era of explorer accommodation. Vintage Horse Camp features four spacious, luxury tents set in a private concession on the eastern boundary of Hwange National Park. Each tent is ensuite with a large open veranda to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the surrounding African bush. Tents can be set up as either double or twins and are tastefully furnished with a suitable place to unpack your clothes and settle in as well as a tea and coffee station and solar lighting. The camp has a small and friendly compliment of staff which includes highly professional guides as well as catering to guests every need, from delivering your fresh coffee in the morning to filling your private vintage bucket shower after a long days ride. Alfresco dining by the warmth of candlelight allows you appreciate the magnificent night sky whilst being kept warm by the glowing embers of the camp fire. Vintage Horse Camp prides itself on being eco- friendly and is completely off grid, from solar lighting to fresh bread baked in a traditional fire oven.
Our scheduled daily rides are a wonderful add on for guests staying in and around Hwange National Park. We offer four daily activities including a Half Day Bush ride, Full Day Safari Ride and a Sundowner Ride. For the little ones or the not so confident our Miombo Pony Ride is a great option.
Our scheduled Day rides operate on both the Hwange Estate and launching soon into the National Park.
Certain activities are for experienced riders only as this is big game country after all!
You can expect to see a variety of game including elephants, zebra, kudu, buffalo, impala as well as a huge variety of birds.
