After several emails to Alison I booked the 4 hour morning ride as an experienced rider that only now rides occasionally. Everything was seamless & hassel free. I was given Duke to ride & found him a pleasure & the guides were great & it was wonderful to be riding through the African bush & being up-close with nature. We... More

I was the only rider the day I took my hack. Having not ridden for very many years I lacked confidence,however Alison and her team were really great, so much so that I am thinking of riding at home in the UK. I was lucky and saw loads of birds, Impala and Buffalo. The lads went at a suitable speed... More

The staff are well trained and very friendly advising you on what to do in case of a mock charge. My horse was a bit... More

We went on the safari on our first morning in Victoria Falls. Alison was easy to work with organizing our experience in advance and everyone we interacted with at the location was great. Our guides tailored the trip to our needs and were not only knowledgable but also skilled at spotting animals. We did the beginner ride and saw lots... More

Great first time experience. Warm welcome from the staff and Alison. Yummy snacks before and after the ride. As a first timer, I enjoyed every bit of it. Unfortunately my horse started acting up because I held the reins very loose so she would stop all the time for a feed. Swapped horses with one of the guides and it... More

I had seen the reviews on here previously about Alison greeting you on her horse and being what may be described as eccentric but decided to just go for it anyway, I am really glad that I did. Joseph picked us up from our campsite which was very helpful and we were welcomed with some fresh squash and horsed up... More

I had a wonderful three day experience with Alison and the team. The horses are beautifully looked after and very kind, and it is a fantastic way to experience the national parks around victoria falls.

My experience with Zambezi Horse Trails was most excellent! I was the only rider on this adventure, however, Alison very kindly allowed me to ride as they usually require more than one booking. The Gorges Lodge, excellent Lodge as well, took me over to the stables after I had finished my Walk with Lions, a very busy morning for me.... More

The ride is very nice whether your experienced or not the horses are very tranquil and will not do anything out of the ordinary. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Zimbabwe as the wildlife get even closer to you because you yourself are on an animal

My husband and I ride horses in Australia and loved our afternoon ride with Zambezi Horse Trails. Our horses were great as were the two staff members which the owner of the business, Alison Baker had arranged to accompany us. Alison carefully chose the horses for us based on our riding ability. The ride was through the National Park with... More
