Horseback Riding in Mozambique

Horseback riding in Mozambique offers the thrilling experience of an authentic beach safari in east Africa. Immerse yourself in this sea-based culture as you visit fishing villages and look out over awe-inspiring views of the Bazaruto Archipelago. Canter along bush paths and past the ruins of Portuguese homesteads and feel yourself a part of their history. Observe ocean wildlife in their natural habitat, watching birds swoop and dive and catching glimpses of dolphins and turtles. Stay in comfortable resort accommodations as you are treated like family by your hosts, Mandy and Patrick.

The story of Mandy and Patrick’s flight from Zimbabwe into Mozambique with a herd of over 100 rescued horses is both heart-rending and inspiring.

In 2000, when the political and economic structure of Zimbabwe crumbled around them, this couple risked their lives to save horses abandoned as farmers fled the country. They moved six times before finally crossing the border into Mozambique with little more than a bag of clothes, a family photo album and the horses.

We continue to follow this story of dedication and perseverance as they struggle to establish a home and livelihood in Vilanculos, on the idyllic and undeveloped coast of a country working to reclaim its place as a unique tourist destination. We are pleased to offer their horseback riding vacations in Mozambique and give you the opportunity to experience all that the country has to offer.
