Overview

We are a Horseback Safari Company operating in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park in Zululand, South Africa. This is an incredible corner of Africa, so fantastic it is a classified UNESCO World Heritage Area. The Park covers a mosaic of land forms that have created a vast array of biomes to support a very wide variety of animals, plants and birds. We have the highest bird count in all of Africa, the southern-most breeding spots for turtles in Africa, Africa's tallest forested dunes, the largest remaining stands of sand forest, the biggest peat beds in the Southern Hemisphere and vast wetlands.... and all of this runs alongside 220 kilometers of pristine beaches and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, where turtles nest, whales often pass on their way to breed just a little further north in Mozambique and dolphins play in the surf.

Dear Alex, thanks for your lovely review! Indeed if you're a beginner 2 hours can cause some sore muscles, but by the sound of it it was worth it. We're very happy you enjoyed the ride and thanks for taking the time to review us!...More

A bush tour in the wetlands for our family of four managed to give both the more and less experienced on a horse back a fantastic contact with animals and nature. The owner and guide gave us one of the highlights in South Africa!
