Horse Riding in Africa


"Mozambique is the most beautiful country in the world for beach-riding. It is heaven. The horses themselves are lovely: safe, well-schooled and great fun to ride. I spent a week pinching myself to check I wasn't dreaming."
Kate Kellaway - Journalist, The Observer Newspaper, United Kingdom.

"I fell in love with a lovely white Arab with whom I spent hours cantering along the beach, only stopping to watch the fishermen coming back with their catch of the day - which I knew would inevitably end up on my plate. What more do you need!
Joelle Boniface, Paris, France.

"I am lucky enough to have been on many riding holidays around the world but none quite as memorable as staying with Mozambique Horse Safari. I don't often say this, as the world is full of exciting places to visit, but i shall return."
Roz Hughes, United Kingdom.


Our clients will be based on the outskirts of Vilankulo at Archipelago Lodge. The lodge is located on the beach and consists of eighteen chalets with stunning views of the ocean. Each chalet has a large double bedroom with en suite shower. There is also a fully equipped kitchen and additional bedrooms with a separate shower. To view more pictures please click  

The restaurant serves delicious food and the focal point is the spectacular swimming pool, offering breathtaking view of the islands and the palm fringed beach below. As the sun goes down you can enjoy walks along the beach and cocktails at the bar.

The resort is staffed by friendly and helpful people. Accommodation is within easy walking distance of the stables and 15 minute drive from the town centre. Wireless internet is provided but slow.

Please note: With so many resorts in Vilanculos; Mozambique Horse Safari is able to offer you a much wider range of accommodation if you would like to change or upgrade to luxury accommodation. Please contact our programme facilitator Mandy Retzlaff for more information.
