A WORLD OF ADVENTURE AWAITS YOU
VICTORIA FALLS HORSE SAFARIS
Victoria Falls Horse Safaris operates two Victorian style carriages beautifully finished in Royal Blue. They offer not only a feeling of nostalgia, but also comfort and an elevated view; ideally suited for special occasions. Our finely crafted carriages are comfortable and authentic, offering a truly unique way to tour the Minor Hotels Resort complex.
Horses that are specially trained for carriage pulling are used for the carriage rides. Our smartly dressed and experienced coachmen are knowledgeable in horse and carriage riding, and know the surrounding area well. They are able to act as a great source of information and take on the role of a guide.
We also offer amazing horseback rides from the Minor Hotels Resort along trails within the National Park. These trails offer magnificent views of the Victoria Falls, as well as the possibility of spotting game along the route.
We have twelve dedicated trail ponies, with the most delightful names like Contemptuous, Bluff, Later, Treacle and Tucker! The ponies are well trained and friendly; they are experienced wildlife trail ponies and are comfortable seeing wildlife, including elephant on our trails.
