Exhilarating Horse Riding at Bazurto Island


Saddle up and grab hold of the reins…. there is nothing quite like experiencing the picture perfect scenery of Bazaruto Island on horseback! Horse riding at Indigo Bay is exhilarating and you can choose a horse that suits your level of riding. This world class island resort offers riders six South African Boerperds with friendly and courageous temperaments. They stroll handsomely along the white shores kicking up the foam as you revel in the magical surrounds of blue oceans and palm trees.

Sure, there is definitely more to a tropical island paradise than just warm water, swaying coconut palms and awe-inspiring sunsets. One of the most enjoyable activities on Bazaruto Island has everything to do with experiencing the romance and allure of nature. Indigo Bay Resort offers a number of horse riding experiences, from riding lessons to galloping along pristine beaches. Guests can also visit the stables to feed and groom the horses.

The carefully selected horses at Indigo Bay Resort cater for novices and experienced riders alike.  You can choose to go for an early morning, or late afternoon, exploration of the islands forests and sand dunes, or experience a breathtaking beach ride along the sandy shores.

Try taking your horse into the sea to paddle with you or take a guided trail through the islands forests and up the huge sand dunes. Pack a picnic and spend the entire day out riding with your loved one – Indigo Bay provides full chaps and riding hats for that outdoor gallop like no other.

Every day at Anantara is a surprising day – there are organised activities for young and old alike including tours, adventurous water sports, cultural  past times and more. There is also a fitness centre at the resort where guests can opt for treadmills, cycling and rowing machines and a full circuit! Click here to learn more about the magic of Indigo Bay.

If you haven’t heard of Qolf, then now is the time to try this funny combination between golf and croquet.  All ages will enjoy it on the lawn outside – or go for a game of tennis and volleyball against newfound friends.

Sand boarding is great fun for children and adults and only requires the energy to clamber up and down the highest sand dunes in the Archipelago. While out and about, take binoculars to spot incredible birds – Bazaruto Island is home to more than 180 different species including flamingos, pelicans and other fantastic migrants.
