Hwange National Park and Victoria Falls from Horseback

Our six night water and wilderness ride will take you on an adventure of a lifetime where you can expect to ride with all of the big five in their natural environment.

This ride is for experienced riders only and can accommodate groups of two to six riders per safari, keeping the experience personalized and exclusive. There are a number of activities to compliment your horseback adventure like walking, both day and night game drives, community and conservation tours as well as a tour of the largest falling sheet of water, the famous Victoria falls, or as the locals like to call her: Mosyi O Tuna- The smoke that thunders.
Horses are our lives at both Hwange Horseback Safaris and Zambezi Horse Safaris and in both of these locations you are sure to find your perfect safari partner. Well schooled and cared for horses that absolutely love being out in the African bush are ready and waiting to lead you on this trip of a lifetime!
