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.

If this type of trip interests you, take a look at other destinations which feature horseback riding on the beach.



You will be based at the Vila de Sonhos, a stunning seaside private lodge. It features impressive rooms, en-suite bathrooms and wide-open balconies overlooking the turquoise sea of the Bazaruto Archipelago. Ancient Baobab trees from centuries before silhouette the blue skies and garden that beholds the chatter of wild birds and monkeys. At the bottom of the garden is private access to the incredible beach below.

Meals & Drink

Meals are made by a personal chef, with a traditional English breakfast served on the terrace each morning. Mouthwatering barbecues from the poolside are a must as you look out onto golden sandbanks with colorful dhows sailing past.
