This brilliant ride is set at two family-run luxury bush lodges located on their own private game reserve in the wild and unspoiled Waterberg region in the north of South Africa. This part of the country is known for an incredible diversity of terrain and scenery as well as wildlife, including many of the rarer species not easily observed elsewhere. Your hosts’ ancestors were one of the earliest pioneers in the area, settling here in 1886.
The lodges are widely known for their unparalleled horseback safari experience and unique flexibility. As a guest, each day is tailored to suit you. There is no fixed programme, the hosts pride themselves on their flexibility to accommodate everyone's needs and wishes. They can cater for any riding ability, both the experienced rider as the first-rime beginner, and also welcome non-riders and children of all ages. There is a range of activities available to suit any kind of guest, including bush walks, game drives, mountain biking and horse riding of course. The choice is yours!
The lodges have a herd of over 90 horses, who live a blissful life on the private game reserve amongst the wildlife. With the horses seen as a normal part of daily life, horse riding safari guests can get closer to wildlife than probably anywhere else in Africa. Guests can wake up when they want, ride when they want and for as long as they want. There will be no more than 6 guests on any one ride and each ride is accompanied by two guides as safety is of paramount importance. Riders of different abilities will not be mixed unless they choose to do so. Reliable ponies are available for children.
The owners strive to create your home away from home. The two spacious and luxurious safari lodges are owner designed and built. Using local stone and thatch, they blend into the surroundings beautifully, setting the scene to give guests the most memorable bushveld views. Both lodges have room types of different sizes and standards available. Delicious cuisine with a blend of local and international recipes, glorious sundowner locations, beautiful gardens, various chill-out lounge spots and a heated swimming pool all make the relaxed and comfortable African atmosphere complete.
Both lodges can either be booked exclusively, to one group at a time (like a family), or you can book just one room, making it a favourite destination for multi-generational family bookings, solo riders, couples or friends travelling together. The staff is exceptionally hospitable and will go above and beyond to exceed your expectations to ensure your stay is a memorable and a life-changing safari experience.
