During a typical 10 day holiday, guests have the opportunity to ride across an expanse of 21,000 acres, covering the different areas on the reserve and the conservancy. The Family Safari is based on the historic family estate. We run a herd of over 90 free roaming horses and can cater for all levels of riders from experienced to complete novice / beginner.
This is the perfect holiday for those riders wishing to experience the pleasure of riding with African wildlife in the absence of dangerous game. Wildlife to be seen on the reserve include hippo, giraffe, zebra, plains antelope, leopard, caracal, brown hyena, jackal, crocodile and aardvark. There are also over 300 bird species on the reserve.
There are two outrides or riding activities a day. Morning rides last 3-4 hours (or less if requested) and afternoon rides are somewhat shorter. Jumping is also available on request. Rides are tailor-made to suit the needs of our guests and we try to be as flexible as possible. The distinguishing features of this safari include: the variety of activities on offer, it is very child friendly and is fully flexible (ride times, meals times and menus can all be tailored to suit).
