Riding in Zimbabwe & Mosambique

Welcome to Victoria Falls - by some measures, the largest waterfall in the world, as well as being among the most unusual in form, and having arguably the most diverse and easily seen wildlife of any major waterfall site. This is your starting point for an extraordinary week with lots of horseback riding in excellent wild game areas. You will find Zimbabweans to be extremely friendly and those who visit the country can expect the royal treatment. While the world’s media focuses on the government of Zimbabwe, visitors will see a very different image of the country. The area around Victoria Falls (neighboring Zambia), in particular, is very safe and welcoming! Overnights are luxurious safari lodges and safari camps along the way. 

Ride across the rolling Kalahari sand dunes covered with gras and woodland, ride through dramatic escarpments of the teak forests, to Mopane Woodland, the cool shady Riverine forest along the Zambezi. Venture over hills and ravines above the Zambezi gorges, with a birds eye view of the rapids below Victoria Falls. There are plenty of opportunities to canter on these rides – game permitting. This is an area where you and your horse can stand in the middle of a herd of browsing Kudu watching the Giraffes in the distance. You will have an elephant and lion encounter along the way and finish off your week on a full day canoeing on the upper Zambezi River before spending your last night at the luxurious Imbabala Safari Lode at the edge of Chobe National Park - with one of the highest elephant populations anywhere. A sunset river cruise and morning game drive are some of the highlights before departing from Victoria Falls in the afternoon. 

Lion Encounter
We offer a unique and stimulating wildlife adventure from Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe). Situated on the Masuwe Estate, only 10 minutes from the center of Victoria Falls town you'll find a group of lion cubs ranging from 3 to 16 months of age. These lion cubs offer guests an unparalleled experience and insight into the behavior of this threatened African species. The “walking with lions” encounter is an opportunity to interact with 2 or 3 cubs for up to an hour and a half during a single session. The lions are unrestrained and roam free as you join them on a walk through riverine vegetation and African bush on the banks of the Masuwe River. The encounter is fully supervised and professionally managed by an experienced and qualified team who have been working with lions for over 20 years originally at Gweru’s Antelope Park. 

Elephant Encounter - Safari
Join us for an extraordinary and exhilarating journey along the edge of the Zambezi gorges following ancient game trails. Seated comfortably on the back of natures true “king of the beasts”, experience an age old tradition whilst silently exploring the majestic grasslands of Victoria Falls National Park and marvel at the spectacular scenery of Masuie river plunging 120 m into the Zambezi below. Be witness to this mutually enriching and rewarding relationship between man and elephant in a modern day Africa. Sunset safaris are run daily, promising you much more than just a game-viewing experience, but rather a closer insight into the worlds largest land mammal, the African Elephant.
