  • excellent stay spent in August. We stayed 2 nights. To do again.... We should have stayed a little longer. Warm welcome, personal at the top. Very nice room. A quiet and relaxing place. The ostrich pavement is excellent. We loved our family stay. Our daughter loved her horseback ride.

  • I don't recall exactly what date we visited but it was freezing! We didn't ride horses but went to see the lions. As my daughter was a bit short, we couldn't walk with the lions as they were a bit big...  more »

  • This was the most amazing thing I’ve ever done. I was a first time rider and they made me feel so at ease on the horse. They were welcoming, nice, and super friendly. After an amazing tour on horseback (about 2ish hours) we had a great lunch of pizza. Then we had about an hour to relax and then we started our lion tour. This was hands down the best thing I’ve ever done. We got to watch them feed their adult lions and then we got the chance to walk with some youngsters. We learned all about them and the conservation efforts they put in. The youngsters will eventually be relased back into the wild once they’re old enough. And then at the end we got to meet and cuddle a little cub, who was absolutly the cutest thing ever. They also rescue and raise Serval cats/kittens. But dont have any on property except 2 little ones in a nursery. All in all, this place is a MUST DO on your list of things in South Africa!
  • The best part of our 2 week holiday and a experience that will stay with us forever We spent 2 nights and were made to feel so welcome by both the owners and staff at this beautiful place The Room we stayed in wasn’t Luxury but big and clean . The food was very good and plentiful and to walk and play with the Lion Cubs was such a great experience I would advise anyone to Visit Horseback Africa and not only see what a beautiful place this is but also to see what these wonderful owners are doing to make sure that these beautiful animals are around for ever
  • If you want to have an amazing experience in South Africa, Horseback Africa is the place to go. I went with my Wife on a lion walk and had the time of our life! The stuff our truly amazing and walking with 1 Year old Lions is out of this world. Thank you for making our trip to Africa so truly remarkable!!
  • We had a great day at the place, Wynand and Toga were doing a great job guiding us and the lions. I had mixed feelings before we got there but they are all doing a great job with passion and dedication. Thanks for the special experience, I will never forget it!
  • This has had to have been the best part of our holiday the love and passion that these people have for their lion program is next to none. Well recommended. If we ever go back we will definitely revisit. It would be great to see the team and see what else they have achieved. Good luck with all the good work that is being done at Horseback Africa.
