It was an amazing experience. The horses are great, the location is wonderful - we especially loved Camp Davidson up on the hill. I recommend it to every rider who is looking for an adventure on horseback in a beautiful country.

We were picked up at Johannesburg Airport and transported by minibus to Horizon. The driver was great telling us about the area as we drove through and pointing out all the different animals. On arrival, we were greeted and taken to our lodge which was nicely appointed and we were shown around, given to acclimatise and then had tea and...

I spent 4 nights here for my first time in South Africa. The staff are very friendly, the food is delicious and plentiful - you will not go hungry! The horses are lovely and a lot of them to choose from. The saddles are very comfortable and the guides are entertaining, fun, friendly and very knowledgable. Our schedule was: breakfast,...

I've been on many riding holidays, but this was special. I think I did everything possible on my visit, both staying in the lodge and at the camp. For me, just being able to get close to giraffes and zebras was enough, but I was matched with what turned out to be my ideal horse 'Champion' which made the rides...

When we visited Horizon in August 2015 we rebooked for 2016 before we left. This years holiday was just as good, and we're already making plans to visit in 2017. The entire experience if faultless; great horses, fabulous rides, first-class food and accommodation, staffed by a team that feel more like family, who will go out of their way to...

Was in Horizon already 2013 (not 2015!) it was a lovely spot for relaxed horse riding holiday and in Africa. Can be easily recommended for first visit to Africa as you will feel at ease with the hosts, staff, horses and accommodation. For relaxing riding with well behaved and happy horses in beautiful surroundings :)

From my 4 year old son to my 74 year old mother, including my 2 little nieces and a variety of cousins in between, we all loved the riding adventure at Horizon! Since my last visit Laura Shane and Rupert have developed a lovely family house right next to the 'beach' where the horses come down to drink and swim....

I went to Horizon for a week with a friend in June and we had a great time. The horses, the hospitality, the room, and the views were all wonderful. Breakfast was at 7:30 with a ride from 8-11:30am, lunch at 12, tea at 3:30, and then a ride from 4:30 to 6pm. Dinner was at 7:30. Each day they...

This was our first time at Horizon, we had spent six nights at Ants. This was different in a good way. Our lodge looked over a dam in which there were a family of Hippos. Our very first sighting of hippo in four trips to Africa and it was special, we were having lunch on the lawn and the whole...
