Africa's ultra-sustainable form of transport

Whilst there are many people and places offering horse rides in South Africa, Howard and Randal are about much more than just a ride. Their raison d'etre is to bring the horse-human relationship back into our contemporary way of living, not just for leisure and pleasure but also as a partner and friend in sustainable living. 

As such, they offer horseback safaris which are as much about sustainable transport and conservation as they are about access to the Overberg's many treasures, particularly its splendid nature reserves.  

You can choose from day rides on beaches, mountains and the Klienriver valley filled with rivers and forests or go on overnight trails all the way from Hermanus to Cape Agulhas, learning about and helping in the conservation of the wilds that you ride through. 

 You can make your journey as wild and wooly as you like, camping under the stars with fully catered bush cooking or glam it up by resting your saddle sore legs and bottom in a collection of wonderful guestshouses along the way.  We particularly recommend starting your trip on the shores of the Klienriver Lagoon at The Thatch House, whose palatial dimensions and sensational setting will make a perfect start to the trip.  Prices start at R1 633 per person sharing per night ($114 / £91 / €110) and go up to R3 750 ppspn ($262 / £208 / €250) for enormous suites with lagoon views.

Ethos

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
