Highlight: Victoria Falls Horseback Safaris

Posted on January 10, 2020

Whether you’re a novice rider or experienced horseman visiting the Victoria Falls, we have an exciting holiday activity for you to try.

Our horseback safaris depart from a resort close to the trails within the national park, winding through scenic bushveld where you can enjoy great bird watching and the possibility of spotting wildlife.

We have eight dedicated trail ponies, with the most delightful names like King’s Glory, Night Landing, Storm, Bluff, Countess, Later, Treacle and Tamarind. The ponies are well trained and friendly, and are experienced wildlife trail ponies.
