I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the tented camp for 2. It had all the benefits of camping without any of the hassles. A camping fridge, bedding and cutlery is provided for each unit. Although my tent was located close to another, the bush provided complete privacy. The bush kitchen has a gorgeous view and is was kept spotless throughout. It was a bit hard to understand/execute the instructions to get hot water in the shower, but I managed.

Our family group of 16 was accommodated easy together in the tented camp site. All the facilities was neat, clean and tents was planned well apart for privacy and still close enough to ablution and kitchen. Host and Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely will stay again.

We loved our time at Horseshoe Game Reserve, and can't wait to go back!

Being only 30-minutes (ish) away from EL, it's perfect for a quick weekend escape from the craziness of everyday life. The wood-fired hot tub is also an absolute treat - be sure to take along a chilled bottle of bubbles!

Special thanks to Andre who went the extra mile during our stay. Honestly, for the price we paid, I can't recommend this place enough.

We stayed over at Horsehsoe on different occasions and slept in both the Cabin and the Tented Camps and really enjoyed our stay both times we have been. We went on self game drives and were lucky enough to see Zebra, Giraffe, some bush buck and off course beautiful birds and we took some lovely photos. There is also a few lovely hiking trails which are very enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit, we will be back!

Kim and Wayne are both really helpful and friendly. They have really turned Horseshoe game reserve into a place you want to spend time at. The scenery is beautiful and the game well looked after. The 4x4 trails are fun to explore. We had a lovely relaxing stay.

I just spent a night here but was so pleased that I had made the decision to divert the ten minutes off the main road to this beautiful place. Everything was clean and organised and straightforward to use. If I am in the area I will certainly want to book again.

The place was amazing. So quiet and the views were breathtaking. We enjoyed watching the stars at night time very much. We could actually see the milky way. We had the pleasure of spending a night in one of the tents and we will definitely be back soon =)

We absolutely loved it. It was quiet and secluded, yet close enough to East London so we didn't have to haul across country to experience this amazing place. Great value for money. Lovely scenery and plenty of animals.

Let me just say, if you love nature, and love driving on farm trails, then this is a must stay! It is our second time staying and it was even better than the first🙏 I did get to fully test my bakkie, and in doing so I got to find out just how helpful the helpers are at towing you out with a tractor 🤣 A definite MUST STAY LOCATION!

It was such an amazing experience, not just the place but to see proper management, cleanliness and peacefulness guaranteed. from facilities to accomodations and all round, superb.
They do not tolerate people who do not care about other people's peace, you dont have to worry about inconsiderate music and drinking. You can RELAX. It is truly a breath of freah air to see that a properly run place like this still exists in this country and province.
Certainly a place you cant just go to once.
I want to thank you.
