Horse Riding Safaris

The open grasslands and forest groves of the Ngamo Plains around Camelthorn and Bomani Lodges are among the most scenic areas of Hwange, as well as being home to a variety of wildlife, big and small.  The landscape changes dramatically between the cooler dry winters and warm humid summers.

This special scenery is ideal for horse-riding and several activity options have been designed for riders of different experience levels.  We have a weight restriction of 90kgs and do not allow children under 16 years of age (children 7 years and above are permitted on the Beginner Bush Experience).

All rides are led by our experienced, qualified guides and trackers. The pace is determined by safety and terrain and is mostly fast walking and trotting. Where possible in open areas we will canter and gallop. We look at our riders’ experience and tailor the pace accordingly.

Typically between 2 and 4 guests can join an activity; breaks with refreshments are carefully planned to rest both horse and rider.  We offer 1 ride for beginners and 4 rides for intermediate to advanced riders:-

Beginner Bush experience: 1 hour excursion for beginners and novice riders (Children 7 years and above allowed)

Hippo Sunrise: 3 hour excursion for experienced riders

Cultural immersion ride: 5 ½ hour excursion for intermediate riders to a local village to meet the people and experience their daily life

Sundowner ride: 2 hour excursion for intermediate riders

Full day safari ride: 8 hour excursion for experienced riders
