Riding Holidays in Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe is a stunning country, with a beautiful patchwork of landscapes, from the misty Eastern Highlands Mountains to the vast rolling savannah of the Central Plateau. Tourism is on the increase once more, in a recovering Zimbabwe, where the spectacular Big Five can be located in many wildlife reserves. Visitors will marvel at the many World Heritage Sites, such as the thundering Victoria Falls and Mana Pools (flood plains of the Zambezi).
Horse riding is the ideal way to explore this remote wildlife haven, with experienced guides leading riding safaris in the network of national parks. Stay in luxurious safari lodges and tented camps in the Victoria Falls area. Ride through refreshing Riverine forest along the Zambezi, through towering teaks and over the gently undulating Kalahari sand dunes. The tree flanked slopes and high ravines above the Zambezi, provide an unbeatable view of the rapids below Victoria Falls, accessible as part of a longer mobile safari or on day rides. An amazing array of fauna and flora can be viewed, from the quiet vantage point of a saddle, from Impala and Buffalo to Elephant and Lion.
Many options exist for travellers wanting to combine the thrill and adventure of safari with dedicated wildlife conservation work, with private reserves in central Zimbabwe, giving experienced riders the unique opportunity to participate in game monitoring and protection. From challenging riding with big game to leisurely day rides in magnificent scenery, a friendly welcome awaits in Zimbabwe.
