riding  in cape town

riding cape town

Being a personal favourite of our team based in Cape Town, we have access to some truly fantastic horse-riding adventures throughout southern Africa. 

Horse-riding excursion specifically for horse-riders include incredible horse-back safaris near the Kruger National Park, or in malaria-free game reserves, to tailored horse-riding holidays along the coast (riding from hotel to hotel along rugged, unspoilt coastal paths and stunning long, sandy beaches!).  Neighbouring countries like Botswana also offer wonderful horse-back adventures… imaging cantering through the shallows of the Okavango Delta, or galloping alongside a herd of giraffe? Riding doesn’t get much more exciting than this! There are fantastic adventures for all avid horse-riders and our suppliers have beautiful, well-schooled horses from majestic Friesians, spirited Thoroughbreds to the local, sturdy Boerperds and more. Riding styles range from well-groomed English style to cattle-ranching and western trail riding.

If you haven’t got time for an all-encompassing riding holiday and just want great riding in Cape Town for example, there aresome really superb trails in the winelands, up the mountain passes and along the long stretch of white, sandy Noordhoek beach.  Even for those that perhaps aren’t too experienced, there are many adventures to be had in the saddle. Ride on gentle, obedient horses of all sizes to suit the whole family, as you trot through lush vineyards or a slow canter in the shallow waters of the ocean...

Tailored horse-riding holidays are a pleasure to arrange for you and will be done to suit your level of expertise and interests. Alternatively we’re happy to take you on anything from hourly to full day excursions in and around Cape Town.
