Matobo Horse Riding

Horse Riding in Matobo (Matopos).

At $180 per person per night, All Inclusive except for National Parks Fees at Matobo National Park.  All modes of payment accepted except for swipe.


Still operating under the same principles and ideals of Varden Safaris, Ride Zimbabwe now operates in new riding areas which include Matobo National Park and Cawston Wildlife Estate in Matabeleland. These areas are easily accessible from the major tourism hubs of Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park and Bulawayo.  If you love horses, adventure and the great outdoors there is truly no better way to discover Africa than on the back of one of our beautiful safari horses.

Ride Zimbabwe is owned and operated by James Varden, a well-known and respected Professional Zimbabwean Safari Guide and his wife Janine.   Janine grew up in Australia where her love of animals and horses began.  She worked for many years as a Jillaroo on a sheep and cattle farm and then at Werribee Open Range Zoo in Melbourne, Victoria as a Keeper before meeting James and moving to Zimbabwe to create their dream of providing guests with a truly incredible safari experience.

James and Janine both have strong backgrounds in conservation having spent more than 15 years’ operating Horse Riding Safaris in the Mavuradonha Wilderness in the north of Zimbabwe, being involved in many conservation projects to help preserve wildlife and support local communities.    Janine and James firmly believe and know through their experience that wildlife and their habitats will continue to suffer without the benefit of community involvement.
