Wild Coast Horse Trail, riding on the edge of Africa!
Live the life on our Work Rider Program.
Enjoy day rides or short breaks on our Kei River Horse Trails & Riding Holidays
riding along the beaches of the Wild Coast offers some of the most perfect and
spectacular horse riding country-side found anywhere in the world.
At the Great Kei River, a pontoon will transport you and your horse into rural Africa where sleepy tribal villages await you. As you ride through undulating hills, comfortable hotels are nestled in coves along the coast, providing perfect stop off points for the horse and rider.
Explore the rolling hills and savanna grasslands that is home to a kaleidoscope of gaily painted rondavels that form the heart of the Transkei landscape. You will experience for yourself a rainbow of people and a community working together through tourism. Our horses are very fit and for advanced riders the pace is fast and exciting. Rolling hills, deep gorges, and cliff tops that plunge into the ocean ensure that this is not just a beach ride; it is an adventure! The beach gallops are exhilarating, the environment pristine, and the views stunning. The local Xhosa people are warm and friendly as we meander through their villages that have been forgotten in this rural African wilderness.
One sweeping bay after another, rolling hillsides, river crossings and warm lagoons ensure adventure filled days of fabulous horse riding.
