Enguerran Zandonai

Coming from France with a huge interest in traveling around the world since I was young, I settled in Mongolia after visiting and living in various countries in Europe and Asia. Bringing the best of what Mongolia has to offer is my biggest motivation, since I fell in love with this country.

Incredible landscapes, and various activities together with the warm welcome that Mongolian people are famous for, contribute to the fact that I can propose wonderful adventures.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Most of Mongolia's interesting locations to see! We provide tours for English-speaking clients who are excited about discovering this wonderful and vast country, rich of its own culture and history. We cover the northern regions close to the Khuvsgul lake, with a incredible stay at the bank of the lake and within reach of the reindeer breeder, in one of the most remote location possible. Boating, horse riding, fishing, trekking and general adventure and discoveries are possible.

The center of Mongolia, the land of nomadism where grasslands are meeting the central mountain range of the Khangai with beautiful people who manage to keep their traditions intact since the times of Genghis Khan. Here is the land of horses which graze freely in this vast area, the yaks for the creation of wool and felt, or the cashmere with beautiful goats.

The very West of the country is another unbelievable place for trek lovers and horse riding addicts. At the heart of the Altai mountain range and the Kazakh minority, it is possible to feel the highest peaks of Mongolia, witness people hunting with their eagle, ride horses and trek with camel packing your gear.

We provide many activities on our tours (including but not limited to) such as horse-riding, dog sledding, hiking, cycling, camping, camel riding, fishing...including also cultural event such Naadam and Ice Festival, with the visit of local families at the countryside."

How did you get involved in travel?

"My parents were both flight attendant for the largest airline company in France, and very early proposed me to join trips around the world, I caught this "travel addiction" quite fast! I discovered so many beautiful places and very interesting people along the way which gave me even more the will to either travel myself for my future jobs or propose to share some of my experience and these locations with many people. After multiple jobs in various industries in France, China, Bulgaria, I settled with my wife in her country of origin: Mongolia. That's when I found the activity that I have today: a mix of adventure, sharing with travelers and make things happen for them to create awesome memories just like I have myself."

Excellent. Very prompt and efficient. Great communication and reliable.

Enguerran from Horseback Mongolia was excellent from the very beginning in providing an itinerary which I requested as well as flexible in adding any changes that were required along the way. He was up front and always prompt in his communication. He was also in touch while we were in Mongolia to sort out any issues that had occurred which was reassuring.

Enguerran from Horseback Mongolia was excellent from the very beginning in providing an itinerary which I requested as well as flexible in adding any changes that were required along the way. He was up front and always prompt in his communication. He was also in touch while we were in Mongolia to sort out any issues that had occurred which was reassuring. Mongolia isn't the easiest country to navigate yourself through and I would highly recommend Enguerran as a trip planner and organizer for you trip through this beautiful country. He also put us in touch with a great guide and driver for our memorable trip.

Our guide Bolortuya (Boogie) was on to it from the word go. She was informative, friendly and made us feel very much at home during our stay in Mongolia. She would show us things along the way through her excellent local knowledge which would be hard to find in most guide books and provided a totally unique and authentic Mongolian experience. Would highly recommend her if you are travelling through Mongolia. We will always remember the fun times spent with her in a beautiful country. Special thanks to out driver Sarul as well, who navigated the rough Mongolian roads with ease and was always keen to stop at a great photo location. It is always important to have a driver you can trust on the long and rugged Mongolian countryside and he was really good in this regard.

Overall, a great experience, some lovely people . Would highly recommend all the individuals mentioned in making our trip nothing short of an adventure to Mongolia. :)
