Horse Riding with the Zimbabwe Wildlife
Seeing the wildlife of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe is a stunning experience on its own but Imvelo Safaris have just announced the start of horse riding from two of their lodges. This would be a completely different way of seeing the wildlife of visiting the village close by for a genuine cultural experience.
There are different experiences to take in to account experience – and yes there is an option for beginners or novice riders. The options are:
- Beginner Bush Experience – approximately 1 hour for beginners and novice riders
- Hippo Sunrise – approximately 3 hours for experienced riders
- Cultural Ride – approximately 5 ½ hours for intermediate riders
- Sundowner Ride – approximately 2 hours for intermediate riders
- Full Day Safari Ride – approximately 8 hours for experienced riders
In line with Imvelo’s ethos, this new activity has been brought to life in partnership with the communities. It has provided new jobs and will support Nganyana Village close to Camelthorn through guests participating in the cultural ride! During your visit the villagers will gladly show you the different ways they try make an income including basket weaving, beading and jewellery making – riders are welcome to try their hand at these crafts too!
The magnificent and expansive savanna vleis that border Camelthorn along with the Ngamo Plains make for the best safari riding areas in Zimbabwe and guests will now be able to enjoy leisurely strolls or more adventurous rides all led by experienced horse guides! The sense of freedom, silence and tranquillity, with a touch of adrenaline thrown in too, brings you closer to nature than you may have ever been before.
