Bubiana Horse Riding Experience

This project is an amazing opportunity to connect with nature and wildlife, surrounded by horses in the African bush. Spending time with these spiritual animals amongst friendly people is a great way to tune into nature and learn a new way of life. 

What will I be doing?

You will be assisting with the daily tasks that are required to care for the horses. For example, grooming, feeding, exercising, turnout and cleaning tack. You will then also be riding almost every day and maybe even twice a day if necessary. This could be a trail ride through the bush, a horse swim in the fresh Bubiana River, jumping, or fitness exercise. The majority of the riding will be done in the bush - it is so vast and therefore a great way to keep the horses fit, whilst exercising their minds too! There will also be organised overnight safaris where you and your horse will be sleeping under the stars, mountain hikes to amazing viewpoints and the chance to visit the local community.  

It is a really fun project with plenty of variety. You will also have the opportunity to visit the other projects happening in Bubiana for example the Canine Anti-Poaching Program or the Leopard Collaring & Conservation (if this is taking place at the time). You will also have plenty of down time for extra activities too.


You will be staying in traditional and luxurious African accommodation. You will either be in individual round houses or a tented camp consisting of 4 tents. Both with twin rooms or double rooms which all have en-suite bathrooms and a shared lounging and dining area. It is safe to say you will be very comfortable during your time here. Both accommodation set ups have Wi-Fi and are solar powered.


You will be provided with three cooked meals a day and plenty of refreshments such as tea, coffee and juice, should you wish. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know in advance. There is house-keeping and laundry services included on site.

The Bubiana Conservancy is located in the south of Zimbabwe. It is a vast area consisting of about 50,000 acres of African bush with an extremely high population of African wildlife. This is a great location if you're looking for a real African experience - you will be 4 hours from the closest town and get to experience the peace and tranquility of being surrounded by nature. Bubiana has stunning mountains and balancing rock structures formed over thousands of years with picturesque dams and farmland. It is a home away from home with a true family feeling.
