Known as "The Real Africa," Zambia boasts many beautiful large lakes and waterways, stunning vast floodplains and pristine wilderness which lend themselves beautifully to horse riding holidays. Although Zambia lacks the spectacular mountains of many of its neighbouring African countries, it boasts more intact woodland than any other and is home to The Zambezi River and the mighty Victoria Falls.
From trail riding into the bush, particularly near to Lusaka (the country’s capital city) and to Livingstone, near Victoria Falls, to riding into the teak forests and wilderness areas, crossing over rivers and camping out along the banks of the river, there are many ways to enjoy the awesome beauty of this country on horseback. Whether you're an experienced or novice rider, there are riding safaris to suit all abilities. Trails and riders are paired with friends or groups of similar riding abilities giving you the opportunity to watch game at very close quarters led by experienced guides.
For something a little different, a few camps spread over Zambia and Botswana even offer elephant rides!
