Zambezi Horseback Safari

A horse safari in Victoria Falls, across this beautiful part of Zimbabwe is a unique and breath-taking experience. You have the chance to follow in the footsteps of the great David Livingstone; riding through the areas adjacent to the magnificent and iconic Zambezi River. Riding out from the iconic Victoria Falls, you will explore the wildlife rich, stunning scenery, that surrounds the Zambezi and Victoria Falls National Parks. Your journey takes you across a variety of landscapes; catching panoramic views from escarpment tops, gaining insights into rural African life, cantering across endless grassy plains and spotting numerous game such as sable, giraffe, zebra and elephant, along the way.

    5 Mistakes Horse Owners Often Make When Loading Their Horse

    Bit vs Bitless

    BIT VS. BITLESS TRAINING

    When it comes to the welfare of the horse, riders and trainers do their best to ensure that the horse is not subject to pain under saddle.

For certain situations, a bit may be more efficient than not using one. In other situations, riding without a bit may be more comfortable to the horse than using a bit. It depends on the situation, the training level of the horse, the rider’s abilities, and the goals that you are trying to achieve with your horse as to which method will work best.
