Roz Hughes, United Kingdom.
Mozambique Horse Safaris offers you our Volunteer Programme which is aimed at gap year students and
adult volunteers who are looking to develop their riding skills, discover the culture of
Mozambique and make a
difference in Africa helping our horses.
This is indeed a unique experience for horse riding
enthusiasts of all ages. The area is relaxing and pretty
spacious that it can accommodate a number of people. There
are also nearby companies offering
horse trailer hire for the convenience of our guests.
The prices these companies charge are quite reasonable and
The Volunteer Programme is based on the coast in Vilanculos and offers students the chance to acquire a wealth of information about equine management, riding skills and life in Africa.
In addition to working with horses you will be able to
volunteer out at the local orphanages in Vilankulo where you
will experience poverty and the problems that are faced by the people of Mozambique.
Our volunteers become part of the family and deep bonds form
between horses and volunteers. Coming to Mozambique is a
truly life changing experience.
