Go on this beach safari horseback riding holiday in Mozambique

Mozambique Beach Safari

Ride Overview

Ride along the Vilanculos coast and on Benguerra Island during this horseback riding holiday in Mozambique. Enjoy long stretches of untouched white sand beaches and magnificent views overlooking the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago. Experience the unique culture of this country that gained independence from Portugal in 1975 and national peace in 1995. In 2012 Mozambique was considered one of the 50 most peaceful countries in the world, and its coastal culture has been well-developed in the 21 years of strong stability. Horseback is one of the best ways to experience the Mozambican way of life, particularly on mounts from this well-cared for and trained herd. Every detail is given the necessary attention from your genuinely hospitable hosts, and you will experience the true relaxation and pleasure that comes with a well-planned horseback riding vacation in an exceptionally beautiful part of Africa.

The spirit of fun and adventure runs deep here in the “jewel of the Indian Ocean”; take this chance to enjoy a truly unique African horseback adventure.
