Horseback Trails Summary
As we leave the stables, we enter the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate for a safari like no other. There is no loud sound of an engine, only the clip-clop of horse’s hooves, as we search for animals while winding our way through the African bush.

The estate is home to giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, waterbuck, nyala, impala, kudu, steenbok, duiker, warthog and leopard to name a few, however, the chances of seeing all of these can never be guaranteed but it’s the anticipation of what’s around the next corner that makes the bush so exciting.

The trail follows a riverine course, which contains two dams, where one can hope to see a variety of game quenching their thirst. Whether you’re a bird watcher, animal lover or just here for the ride, a horseback trail is the perfect way to experience the bush in its most natural form.

We offer a 1-hour or 2-hour trail option and cater for both beginners and advanced riders.

For those that don’t necessarily want to do a trail but would like an opportunity to sit on a horse for a photo, we also offer what we call an insta-experience.
