Ride Zambezi Horse Trails

"We went for an hour and a half guided horse ride which was an unforgettable experience, something I had never thought of being able to do in Africa!  - Debbie, UK, April 2016

What could be better than experiencing the bush on horseback? For those of you who love and want to ride horses, we offer various rides to best suit your preference. Short hour and a half rides to half day and multi-day bespoke rides along the Zambezi River. We also have a large stable yard with horses for all levels of riders in our stables.

Ride Zambezi Background

Man of few words and an old bush hand…spent 10 years working for National Parks in Zimbabwe. He then moved back to the Zambezi River to build Chundukwa River Lodge (near Victoria Falls) where he ran safaris into remote parks all over Zambia and into Namibia. 25 years later Doug spends his time rehabilitating and training mainly thoroughbreds off the track for Polo Crosse and trails. Doug is a Zambian National Polo Crosse Coach and has coached for the World Cup and the American Inbound Tour to Zambia.
