Horse safari in the Limpopo Valley 2021

The Limpopo Valley… here the true Africa begins to reveal itself, a land that is sometimes rich and sometimes merciless, with its scarce pools of water, dotted with shaggy vegetation, which gives shelter and food to its inhabitants. The Limpopo valley takes its name from the river of the same name, dry for most of the year but which can reveal great surprises during the rainy season when everything is reborn. We will discover that area that the locals call Tuli, where poignant sunsets await you and as the evening falls, the swarming around your tents will make you dream and tremble under the starry sky.

Departure dates available on request all year round with a minimum of 1 person departing from Italy.

Start on Sunday.

PARTICIPANTS: MIN 2 MAX 8
