If you are looking for an entirely different riding-safari experience then you will most certainly find it here. TripAfrica has combined a private house on the banks of the Zambezi River with daily polocrosse training sessions & an all-inclusive safari in Chobe National Park, Botswana…
Polocrosse is a fast, furious, action-packed sport played on horseback – think rugby/lacrosse/polo and you’ll begin to get the picture. The 2011 polocrosse World Cup was hosted here in the UK where the final was furiously fought out between South Africa and Zimbabwe and with three of the seven national teams coming from the dark continent (Zambia were also represented) the sport continues to thrive in the 3rd world too! There were over 400 registered playing members based in the UK as of 2011.
This African polocrosse adventure comprises of a week in a private family house on the banks of the Zambezi River, Zambia including all meals, local drinks and your very own plunge pool overlooking the river and includes daily polocrosse training sessions with Zambia’s World Cup squad coach. At the end of the week guests will join the lively Livingstone Polocrosse Club for Sunday chukkas followed by a braai at the clubhouse. After all the hard work this is then followed by a three day all inclusive safari in Chobe National Park in Botswana before returning to Livingstone to fly home. Whilst in Livingstone guests will have plenty of opportunity to take part in some of the many adrenalin activities available and, of course, visit the Victoria Falls itself. Horses are available for all levels of player from the total beginner to the A grade player. Non-riders can also be accommodated.
