soft adventure at it's best :) Thank you Michelle for the best start of a day I had in a very long time :)

Great staff, lovely horses and a beautiful scenery. We had a wonderful 3-hour-ride down to the beach.

We got to go on a short walk in the nature and enjoy the views and the ride without any prior experience. Staff were lovely. Horses very sweet.

Our ride through the fynbos up the mountain took us to breathtaking views. Our guide made us very comfortable with our horses, though none of was was terribly experienced. I would recommend making this activity a priority.

My daughter loved riding here, she is a very experienced rider and got to enjoy the trails with an instructor. This was not a pony ride, but a serious riding experience. Best of all, riding is included in the price of the stay. This would be one of the reasons to return.

We went on a trial ride. We're beginners but the horses were gentle and the staff very knowledgeable and supportive. I even got to snuggle Luke (the horse) in the paddock before our ride.

We weren't there for the horse riding although it looked to be an amazing experience . We were there for relaxation and an appreciation of the flora & fauna . We were not disappointed in the morning tours / hikes and the access to other great experiences such as whale watching , thousands of seals and Great White sharks .... More

I'm a novice so just did the very safe and slow plod around the reserve. We were in very safe hands and the views were excellent. More experienced riders go out separately so that they can enjoy the thrill and challenge of a faster ride.
