Riding holidays in Zambia
Explore diverse scenery and remote environments whilst horseback riding in Zambia. Several lodges offer riding excursions and daytrips, catering for most experience levels, but none offer overnight riding holidays that go further afield.
Most of the horse-riding safaris in Zambia occur in areas of low densities of big game. This means they can be good for novice riders, as well as experienced riders who enjoy a fast pace. However if these horse-riding safaris are not adventurous enough for you, then it is also possible to try an elephant ride at the Victoria Falls. Elephant rides can be arranged from any of the properties in Livingstone.
