With this exciting new collaboration between Zambezi Horse Safaris and Hwange Horseback Safaris you are now abe to ride in two of Zimbabwe's top safari destinations! This big five horseback adventure begins in Zimbabwe's flagship national park and home to one of Africa's largest elephant populations before heading off to explore one of the seven natural wonders of the world!
Our six night water and wilderness ride will take you on an adventure of a lifetime where you can expect to ride with all of the big five in their natural environment. From the open savanna grasslands and mystical teak and acacia forests of Hwange National Park onto the pristine and largely unexplored riverine of the mighty Zambezi River.
This ride is for experienced riders only and can accommodate groups of two to six riders per safari, keeping the experience personalized and exclusive. There are a number of activities to compliment your horseback adventure like walking, both day and night game drives, community and conservation tours as well as a tour of the largest falling sheet of water, the famous Victoria falls, or as the locals like to call her: Mosyi O Tuna- The smoke that thunders.
Horses are our lives at both Hwange Horseback Safaris and Zambezi Horse Safaris and in both of these locations you are sure to find your perfect safari partner. Well schooled and cared for horses that absolutely love being out in the African bush are ready and waiting to lead you on this trip of a lifetime!
