Horse Trails in Southern Africa

Description

There are loads of places in South Africa and southern Africa where you can do a gentle day ride on the outskirts of cities or in popular tourist spots, but there are also some excellent multi-day horse trails and pony treks.

If you've always wanted to canter along a beach with the wind in your hair you could do a short day ride in Cape Town, at Buffalo Bay near Knysna, near Port Elizabeth, or in Maputaland in KwaZulu-Natal. For a real beach fix, you could do a multi-day horse trail in the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park in KwaZulu-Natal, or a fabulous community run multi-day trek along the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape.

In Cape Town, you can amble from cellar to cellar doing a horseback wine tasting tour and, in KZN, you can relive historical battles by riding across the fields of action.

The mountains offer fabulous riding. You can do short rides or multi-day trails in the Porterville and Cederberg Mountains near Cape Town, a wonderful trail in the Kaapsehoop Mountains in Mpumalanga, where you often hook up with feral horses, and there is some great riding in the Drakensberg in KwaZulu-Natal. But the ultimate mountain riding is in the small Kingdom of Lesotho. Here you can do a community run pony trek where you ride across the high mountains from village to village on scruffy, hardy mountain ponies. Not a glamorous option but a real adventure.
