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

I would say that my experience with Zambezi Horse Trails was the highlight of my recent trip to Zimbabwe and South Africa. I was the only rider who had booked this particular morning in late June but Alison very kindly allowed me to ride as they usually require more than one booking. I was picked up at my hotel early...

I am a teenager and I was scared to start with because I'd never ridden a horse before but it was just fantastic! They helped me onto my horse and showed me what to do, it was great, the horse was lovely, I got to ride by myself and I felt safe the whole time! My guide was excellent too... More

My two teenage children and I had a great time on a Horseback Safari at Victoria Falls. Our guides, Reason and Josiah were great and helped us as we are not very experienced riders. Our ride took us through the brush and down by the Zambezi River. Along the way, we were very excited to spot a leopard in a... More

I am a very experienced rider - with many years of safari riding under my belt - and booked a four-hour 'experienced' ride. After a brusque talking down to from the owner - who remained on horseback throughout - I set off with another experienced rider who had booked the two-hour 'novice' ride as he was short of time. We... More

We had booked our horse-riding afternoon safari through Wild Horizons and this was the only third-party activity we had any administrative issues with. Firstly let me say that the actual horse riding itself was outstanding – two full hours wandering through a game reserve and we encountered a large herd of buffalo, baboons and impalas galore. Being on horseback meant... More

I am personally not a horse person but this gives you a feel of being closer to nature than using a car. Somewhat scary for first time riders but should be easy for other riders

The tours that this organisation does are adapted to the rider's level. If you are a beginner, they will never take you into thick bush or close to wild animals. This to ensure your safety. I am an experienced rider so I went on a ride into thick bush, next to the Zambesi river and up close to buffalo, waterbok,... More

We went on this horse back ride through the Zambezi National Park. Since we are not very experienced riders and older than 50, we each had our own guide who rode alongside of us, steadied our horses while we took pictures and were very protective of us. Reason was the head guide - he took care of 2 very experienced... More
