Overview
More
Come and share in the epic adventures of the Retzlaff family where the legends of the rescued horses of Mozambique Horse Safari come to life. Open your eyes to a different world, where you will ride the beaches on a sprightly bay, wade into turquoise seas and share in the unbreakable bond between man and horse. The majority of our horses were rescued from Zimbabwean farms at the height of political violence and each horse has their own incredible story. You will meet Texas, the strong grey gelding who was about to be fed to lions, and Princess, a gentle loving mare who survived a spear to the shoulder by marauding thugs. You will also meet Lady an orphan foal that has grown into the matriarch of our herd, and Morango, a newly born foal and hope for the future. Our guests become part of the family and often return regularly with deep bonds forming between horse and rider. Riding with Mozambique Horse Safari is a truly life changing experience!

A unique experience in near paradise. Excellent horses superbly well kept; one is taken on a somewhat challenging course, including a romp along the beach. Mandy also has a unique approach to things didactic - she immediately identifies those who can "Darling! I can see...More

Really loved my ride! Rode a super little crossed Arab horse, she was so nice. After checking that all riders were competent, Pat who was guiding us was great, and very relaxed. We had a lot of freedom, and had amazing canters on the beach....More

Apologies for the late response, a day ride will usually work out at about $50.00 for a standard ride.
