November highlight: Horizon Horseback

Horses cantering free at dawn.

Our herd in South Africa lives free in the reserve and comes into the yard every morning. Sometimes we muster them in, but most of the time they make their own way in.

If you get up early enough, you will see this on a Signature Safari. Four of our garden chalets look directly at this spot. 

The Signature Safari runs through out the year and caters for all levels of rider. Send us an email for more info.
