Saddle up if you’re in search of that free and easy feeling you can only experience while cantering through the wilderness on a horse. Horseback Africa offers a range of outride options within a private game park and within easy reach of Pretoria.
The equestrian excursions aim to transport you into the big-sky spaces and natural grandeur of the Highveld bush, allowing you to forget about the rat race for a few hours. You will get a unique opportunity to see wild animals close up and escape the noise and pollution of the city.
If you’ve always been in awe of horses but have never had the courage to ride one, this is your chance. The MacRae family specialise in teaching and have a range of horses suited to all levels of riders, even absolute rookies. Best of all, several guides accompany each of the outrides, so different levels of riders are catered for without pressure on the rest of your group. Advanced riders keen to learn and experience the so-called “Sport of Kings”, or polo, will be able to learn a lot from Gavin. He is a respected teacher with many years of experience and will be able to greatly improve your riding and playing ability. It is advisable to book well in advance.
The easiest route to Horseback Africa is along the N1 North from Pretoria. Turn right onto the R513 and then almost immediately left onto the R573 past Roodeplaat Dam. A detailed map is available on the website.
