What to Bring for Mozambique Coastal Paradise Holiday

Mozambique is a third world country with sandy roads and very limited shops.  So please bring your sun screen, tampons, headache tablets etc. along as these items are sometimes hard to obtain here.  Please bring your own riding hat if you can, just in case our selection is not to your satisfaction.  If you are happy to part with your riding hat when you leave, we will buy it from you.

Mozambique is a malaria area so please take your prophylactics.  Make sure your mosquito net is tucked in under your mattress.  Spray your room when you go out. The lodges regularly spray for mosquitoes. Please bring mosquito repellant for night time as we often are sitting outside.

Benguerra Island: We take a boat out to the beautiful Benguerra Island.  Make sure you bring your swimming costume as we include a snorkeling trip. If you have your own goggles, please bring them with you as sometimes the leased goggles may leak.  Don't worry about flippers, the boat provides all sizes.  You can get wet on the boat but we put your riding clothes, towels and cameras in a dry box.  The Boat is equipped with life jackets.  There are no magazines or newspapers, so if you want to relax with a book, make sure you bring some with you.  You can donate these when you leave to Imap school or the book club at the coffee shop.

Fishing Village Ride: We go out to the community. It is nice to bring sweets for the children or stationery.  We interact with Imap school as well. So if you feel like giving up 30 minutes of your time to talk English to the students they will be delighted.

We ask our clients to bring treats for the horses as it is very difficult to get any treats for horses in Mozambique.  So feel free to bring horse treats along ... our horses will be very happy! :-)
