A Horseback Safari is the purest way to experience nature. The smell and the sounds of a horse will make the wildlife forget the people riding it, so that you can meet our giraffe, zebra, kudu, blue wildebeest and all others up close and personal. We have built a perfect relationship with Groot Verlange Horse Academy and their horses. Groot Verlange has been in the Horse Trail business for nearly 30 years and their calm, properly trained and happy and healthy horses have become famous all over the Magaliesberg Biosphere area. Your guide is passionate about the Silkaatsnek Nature Reserve and its wildlife, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you might have!
Silkaatsnek is the only place in Hartbeespoort and surroundings where you can view wildlife on horseback in a real Nature Reserve. All levels of horse riding experience are welcome and we only work with small groups of riders to guarantee the best possible personal experience!
