This 7-night Mozambique riding holiday, recently reviewed in the Guardian by Kate Kellaway, brings together divine tropical beach locations and superb riding. With over 30 well-school horses to choose from, the Mozambique Horse Safari team hand-pick the right one to suit each guest.
Kate raved about the experience and said she had never been allowed such freedom on a horse holiday. You'll ride through the red dunes on North Beach, beside the coconut plantations and along miles of wide, deserted beaches.
Sounds hard to top this, but the day trip to idyllic Benguerra Island, where you swim with the horses in the azure Indian Ocean seas, is truly sensational.
