While lying on the lounger outside my villa I spotted a couple of horses going for an outride along the beach. Being a keen rider myself, I couldn't have thought of a better way to explore the island. I immediately booked a ride through my hotel, Azura Benguerra, and found myself cantering along the beaches of the magnificent island the... More

If you love horses, Africa, good food, guaranteed sun, and a hint of luxury then Mozambique Horse Safari is the perfect place for you! I visited a while ago and still have dreams about my gallops down the beach on my little horse. The history of the business is also fascinating and by visiting and listening you really begin to...

This is one of the best activities you can do in Mozambique. Mandy, who owns the horse safari business with her husband, is an amazing woman and the love for her horses is obvious from everything she does and has done for them. We booked a trip to the fishing village, which starts around 11am and finishes around 4pm. Mandy... More

I volunteered for 2 weeks with Mozambique Horse Riding Safaris in September 2014. Mandy and Pat are fantastic hosts: They welcomed me warmly, introduced me to pretty much everyone in town and made me feel like part of their family. The horses are relaxed, happy, very well schooled and forward going. Mandy and Pat are horse people; you can tell... More

Mozambique Horse Safaris (MHS) came as being highly recommended to us. I am still in the UK as I write this review having tried to arrange horse riding for youngest daughter via MHS, however, it seems, but due entirely to our "awkward" holiday locations/timings, daughter now may not be able to ride with MHS. Despite this, the customer service and... More

Daughter and friend went on three hour out ride. Horses were matched to riders and they rode along the beach and into the interior to see the old crocodile lakes. Friendly staff and a highlight of the stay for them.

This was such a lovely experience. Usually when you do an outride in far off places you cannot expect too much but here the horses were well schooled and responsive, riding equipment was provided, and Mandy our guide was very informative about the area. We had a late afternoon ride with one infrequent rider among us and it was really... More

On a recent visit to the beautiful island of Benguerra I was lucky enough to experience an unforgettable horse ride across the island. The horse safaris are operated by the company Mozambique Horse Safaris . The company was established in 2006 with horses rescued from Zimbabwe’s land invasion. “ One Hundred and Four Horses”, by Mandy Retzlaff is a must... More

We rode for 5 days with Pat and Mandy and had the most amazing experience. They made us feel like part of their family and not just guests. Just being there was an experience in itself as you get to sample some of the day to day life of living in vilanculos. So just go with the flow and you... More
