Introductory Ride: Two hours Riding
Our guests are met at Vilankulo Airport by your hosts and guides for the week. After a short transfer from the airport, you’ll be settled into your lodging for the week. In the afternoon you will have an opportunity to meet the horses and staff at the stables. You will be presented with a number of horses to try in our riding school. Once you feel comfortable the group will head out onto the beach for a slow and relaxing ride, allowing you to become familiar with horse and equipment. The ride incorporates all the wonderful eco-systems in the archipelago; wide open beaches, incredible cliff top views, pristine dune bush and mangrove shoreline. In the evening a fresh seafood dinner will be served under the stars overlooking the sea.
Nearly every time we come home from an Equitours ride, we say, "That was the best ride ever." But our latest ride in Mozambique really truly was the best ever. Mandy and Patrick are not just superb horse people, they are charming and engaging people people who share their love of place with open hearts and a constant stream of colorful stories. The endless collected canters on the beach, the meanders through the bush, the ride to the red dunes, to the fishing village, to the fresh water lakes were distinctive and memorable experiences. And have I mentioned reef diving, bird watching, and swimming with the horses in the Indian Ocean? It all added up to a perfect trip and a fabulous introduction to a country to which I am sure we be drawn irresistibly back. Thanks to Equitours for showing us the way.
