Riding Horses in Africa with Mozambique Horse Safari

What to bring

This What to Bring kit list has been compiled with the help of previous riders based on their experience.

Long trousers / jodhpurs, long-sleeved shirts to avoid sunburn and mosquitoes, thick socks, riding hat, riding shoes, shorts, t-shirts, sarong, swimwear, sandals, hat, sunblock, insect repellent, sunglasses on string, snorkeling equipment (mask fins & snorkel), waterproof camera, torch and malaria prophylaxis.

Mozambique is a malaria area and it is advisable to wear long sleeve tops and trousers in the evening, use mosquito repellent and make sure you use your mosquito nets. Coartem & Co-Artesiane are readily available and reasonably priced at the Nhamacunda Medical Center. No vaccinations are required for Mozambique. Netcare have recently opened the Nhamacunda Medical Center in Vilankulo providing 24/7 emergency care as well as a list of other services. The unit is well equipped and of international standard.

We suggest bringing a universal travel adaptor as there are a variety of sockets depending on where you stay or which countries you are passing through. Vila De Sonhos use the traditional British three prong square plug; other hotels tend to use the Europlug (two prong) and if you are flying through South Africa they use the M Plug. The standard voltage is 220 V.

Wi-Fi is provided at your accommodation and the stables, the coverage is generally very good but cannot be compared in reliability and download to speed to 1st world countries.
