About Mozambique Horse Safari
Come and share in the epic adventures of the Retzlaff family where the legends of the rescued horses of Mozambique Horse Safari come to life. Open your eyes to a different world, where you will ride the beaches on a sprightly bay, wade into turquoise seas and share in the unbreakable bond between man and horse. The majority of our horses were rescued from Zimbabwean farms at the height of political violence and each horse has their own incredible story. You will meet Texas, the strong grey gelding who was about to be fed to lions, and Princess, a gentle loving mare who survived a spear to the shoulder by marauding thugs. You will also meet Lady an orphan foal that has grown into the matriarch of our herd, and Morango, a newly born foal and hope for the future. Our guests become part of the family and often return regularly with deep bonds forming between horse and rider. Riding with Mozambique Horse Safari is a truly life changing experience!

I went out for a month as a volunteer. Pat and Mandy made me feel so welcome and part of the family. It was wonderful to meet the horses, get to know them and to take part in the rides with beautiful beaches to canter on. The horses are in great condition and well trained thanks to the dedication of Pat, Mandy and Charlotte, ably assisted by the Head Groom, Luka, and his team. I loved my accommodation near the stables, particularly the two dogs, Douma and Bonny, plus the cats. During some of my down time it was lovely to shown around Vilanculos by Maria and Zoe plus share some rides together. Thank you to everyone that made my trip so special, I will always smile when I think about my time in Mozambique.

This was a highlight of our holiday in Vilankulos, Maria the instructor was very patient and attentive. Luka and Temba assisting were very pleasant indeed. Will definitely be back to ride Mandy's horses again.

You can tell they love what they do. Excellent facilities and lovely ride. Matched riders very well with the horses. The amount of galloping along the beach time was incredible as most venues do not allow you to do so. Incredible history and over all a great experience.

What an amazing experience. Our 2year old went on her own horse by herself. Her First time on a horse and they treated her so good. Lovely and so friendly people. We met some amazing people(guides) and the experience to Drive in the Water was Breath Taking. Our Daughter enjoyed herself alot. This is an experience you must do if you are in Vilanculos. We had a 6month old which were unable to go with us, because of certain rules, but they provided us with a babysitter. Contact them before hand to make sure, because at this time there were also a 4months old from one of the guides, which had a full time nanny. I don't know if she is always there.
