Horseback Riding

Explore magnificent Zambian landscapes on horseback. Calling all novice, experienced and ‘I think I can do this’ horse riders in the Victoria Falls area, we have the perfect holiday activity for you.

Our horseback rides depart from the Minor Hotel Resort along trails within the National Park, taking you through scenic African Bushveld with good bird watching and the exciting possibility of spotting wildlife. We offer Half Hour Children’s Pony Rides, Two-Hour Trails and Half Day outrides with lunch in the fragrant herb garden.

We have five dedicated trail ponies for guests, with the most delightful names like Night Landing, Storm, Later, Treacle and Tamarind. The ponies are well trained and friendly, and are experienced wildlife trail ponies.

Celebrating a special anniversary? Our finely crafted, authentic horse drawn carriages, beautifully finished in royal blue, offer a truly unique outing around the lush Minor Hotels Resort. Riding in our comfortable carriages creates, not only a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era of grace and charm, but also offers you an unrivalled and elevated view of your surroundings. This activity is ideally suited for special occasions.
