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. Our calm, well trained and happy and healthy horses have become famous all over the Magaliesberg Biosphere area and we always find the perfect horse-human match for both beginners and experienced riders. Your guide is passionate about the Silkaatsnek Nature Reserve and its wildlife, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions while you are enjoying your trail!
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 and safe experience!
Did you know? We also have a large swimming pool and braai area available, where you are welcome to relax after any activity!
If you are interested in getting some professional and fun photos of your Horse Safari, you can contact Ankie from Spirit Photography to learn more about the different available options: 082 894 0045 (please phone this number ONLY for photography enquiries!)
We now also offer extra team building activities, like archery, target shooting, bush chef and Bundu race. Contact us for more information.
