Horseback Africa is run by the warm and friendly MacRae family. They welcomed us with coffee and delicious homemade chocolate muffins on arrival and made us feel completely at home straight away. Brandon gave us a ten minute talk about the horses we would be riding in the morning and I can honestly say I learnt more from him then about the psychology of approaching and riding a horse in that talk than I have ever learnt in my whole life! Despite being a beginner, I was encouraged to have a canter and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, filled with confidence by the caring Brandon! My boyfriend is an experienced rider so Brandon made sure he had an exciting gallop and wasn't held back by me. Lunch was lovely and relaxed. We enjoyed burger and chips and a beer. In the afternoon

I had one day left of an all too short tour of South Africa when Horseback Africa was recommended to me and what good luck! Riding among the giraffes and antelope was an amazing experience. Brandon led myself, a beginner and several more experienced riders on a very educational and enlightening trip around the countryside. Many thanks to Mavis, Owen, Theony and Colin for a wonderful time. I will certainly be back for a much longer stay. PS Great food too!

I dont know how to start??,Firstly what an incredible welcome the Macrae family give you! From the minute you arrive at this amazing place you are treated like you were an old friend.Theony,Brandon and Colin are amazing warm and friendly hosts putting you instantly at ease. After a very welcome cuppa we went out for a ride with Brandon and Mavis i rode Tennesse who was an absolute sweet heart,he kept us spellbound with his vast knowledge of where we were and the animals we saw.The genuine passion love and enthusiasm this man has is written all over his face he has a constant smile and i dont blame him. Lunch was delicious,the accomadation was unique and spotlessly clean with views to die for, it is a true paradise they have worked so hard to create,even their dogs Beth and Jade

A place to visit where you can enjoy horseriding in the morning and in the afternoon walk with the lions. It is an awesome experience and one that a person never forgets. Colin, Theoni makes you feel part of the family from the minute you arrive and shares their knowledge on all the different animals. Lunch is delicious. It is truly a piece of paradise with lots to do.

If you stay in one place in South Africa, make it Horseback Africa. A wonderful place and inspirational hosts - Colin, Brendon and Theoni have become personal friends. They have created a paradise with so much to do - interact with lions, ride in the bush, fish and play polo. I've stayed asany weekends as i can over the last 18 months and brought my kids out for two weeks - they were in tears when they left, talk about their experience constantly and only want to come back here for future holidays! Brendon is the most enthusiastic riding and polo teacher (and guy) on the planet as far as i'm concerned - he got me and 2 boys with no riding experience at all converted into polo addicts. Thanks to all of you!!
