Our horses are truly
dedicated to their work -
highly trained and keenly
attuned to conditions in the
bush wilderness.
OUR HORSES
Help care for the horses if
you wish; feeding,
grooming, saddling up,
cleaning tack, cutting
grass feed.
Learn how to secure the
horses on overhead long-
lines for safe grazing in
the bush.
Horses are the bridge to entering the Cultural
Landscape of Mavuradonha Wilderness, without
adversely affecting the natural eco-systems or
human communities. Zero impact; no roads or
trails cleared through the bush; we ride on tracks
made by wild animals or find our own way across
the terrain.
We can accommodate riders with intermediate
to professional level riding ability. Each safari
geared for the skills and interests of the group.
We ride in predominately English saddles, leather
and synthetic, and also a selection of Australian
Stock Saddles, local McLennan Saddles and
handmade South African Trail Saddles. Most of
our horses are ridden in a snaffle bridle.
