      horse riding in Tripoli, Libya

      by maretravel Online Now May 11, 2010 at 1:16 AM

      I am going to spend the summer in Tripoli, where I plan to look for work as Ive been told its a country with a lot of opportunities ...I am an avid horse woman, Ive been competing and riding my entire life. Most recently I was an endurance rider here where I currently live in Dubai. I would like to have any information or contacts for any riding stables in or around Tripoli. Ideally I am looking for a place to hack, and be able to spend time with horses in a relaxed environment. I understand the beaches outside Tripoli are undeveloped and beautiful. I wonder if anyone is offering beach riding???I I greatly appreciate any information about the equestrian scene ( if there is one) in Tripoli. thanks!

    • Advice on visit

      by hargreavesr Online Now Sep 28, 2006 at 10:32 AM

      My wife and I will be in Tripoli for one day only from a cruise ship. my question is: will we be allowed to roam Tripoli on our own without an official guide. We did work in Tripoli 1968-70 and so have memories of how it was. Most tourists will go on organised trips to Leptis or Sabratha(well worth it) but we have our memories and photos from the past.
      Can anyone advise on the best things to do for a few hours.

      I'm arriving in Libya on March 13th and I'll be staying and working for a year. That gives me lots of time to visit and see things. I'll also be working in 4 different cities so I guess there will be a lot of variety. Are there any specific tips with what to do, where to go - and especially what NOT to do.
