Full description
Horse riding in the Southern Drakensberg is an incredible activity, accessible to all intrepid travellers visiting this beautiful mountain range. Climb up a small hill at the start of the ride, and be in awe of your horses' strength and capabilities. Cresting the peak come out at the top of Engagement Hill and take in the beautiful views.

Riding over the flat plains you will have the opportunity to brave a faster pace, before curving around the mountain. Enjoy beautiful views of the Lodge, the Mzimkulu river and the Drakensberg Mountains. See the Great Escarpment in full view and marvel at the nearer peaks of Mvuleni Mountain and Garden Castle.

Choose your own length of ride, from 1-hour to a full day. If you like take a beautiful journey around a large section of the farm on the 2-hour ride or select a sunset ride and have a clear view of the sun setting over the Drakensberg Mountains.
