Favorite Horse: Viper & Lady
Riding Ability: Intermediate
My Experience: No two days were the same during my stay in Vilankulo which meant that my 3 weeks flew by far, far too quickly. From riding along the stunning beach or practicing conversational English with local students, to having drinks at the bar, the atmosphere was brilliantly relaxed thanks to the culture in general but also due to Pat and Mandy’s laidback , extremely welcoming approach and their great sense of humour. I’m sure anyone who has an interest in horses or wants to do something completely different will have a fantastic time; riding in such a beautiful setting, meeting other like-minded volunteers, sampling the local nightlife, going on snorkelling trips or doing any of the other activities that Pat and Mandy encourage you to experience to ensure you have the best stay possible. Beautiful surroundings, wonderful horses and lovely people meant that I had an amazing experience that really lived up to the idyllic pictures on the website and all the incredibly positive things I was told by previous volunteers. My only regret is that I wasn’t there for longer!
