If your anywhere near Johannesburg, Pretoria, or Gauteng you need to go to Horseback Africa. The location is stunning with giraffe nearby and of course the Lion’s. Learn about rh important work they are doing there and did couse go walk with the lion cubs and get to interact with them. The staff is so kind and professional. They have a true love for these animals and it shows. Limited distractions from roads or cell phones makes this an ideal get away. I only did the lion tour but I will be back. Make sure you book early and check it out.

We really enjoyed our stay at Horseback Africa. We were in the Giraffe Room which was clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated in true African style. We were warmly greeted by Colin and Theony upon our arrival and we found all the staff to be most friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the horse safari and felt that we could have gone on riding for hours!! Colin questioned us about any previous riding experience and briefed us well before we set off. He chose suitable horses for each guest and we felt safe at all times. It was a marvellous experience and we were surprised at how close we could get to the wild animals. The lion tour was interesting, but unfortunately it was very hot and the lions didn't feel like running about too much. However, we were also

This was our second visit to Horseback Africa (our first was about six years ago) and although there have been a few cosmetic changes, everything is just as amazing as the first time and everyone just as friendly. We were there for 'Walking with Lions' and I defy anyone not to enjoy it. Although this is a fun thing to do there is a serious message behind it all and the tour started with a chat about what Horseback Africa is all about and the problems facing lions today. However, you are not preached at and are encouraged to ask questions. We moved on to meet the resident adults and then the teenagers of the pride with plenty of opportunities to take pictures. Next comes the cute bit! We got to interact with the cubs, feeding them and then winding them (yes, seriously!), which

Very enjoyable getaway. Owners were fantastic as was all the staff. Particularly fond of Es and Kitty! The horses were ama I gotta and the rides even more so. The lunchtime pizza was delicious. The bar was inadequate however.

Sorry that we did not respond to your review! But here I am, saying THANK YOU!! You are quite right - our bar is inadequate - we spend all our energies caring for animals, and we tend to neglect the bar. WE will definitely do something about that.

Firstly the driving directions you receive from Collins Horseback Africa Are bang on you can’t go wrong. Secondly everybodys so welcoming and what a relaxing place. Loved the fact that you could just walk about the entire area , we took a walk saw loads of game and for my partner to get within 20 feet of her favourite ,a giraffe just made her year . The food was fantastic cooked fresh ,and in the evening right in front of you on the braai. Totally recommend this place. Will defiantly be going back. Oh and just to say the lions are a must . Totally left my heart behind with them, and have the most amazing pictures as well .
