Description

Horizon Horseback offers a range of riding safaris in the malaria-free Waterberg region South Africa and now also in Botswana via their sister company (see Horizon Botswana page). Regular winners of the 'Best Riding Safari in Africa' title in the prestigious Safari Awards, Horizon is a well-known horse safari destination with a longstanding reputation for its friendly, relaxed atmosphere and focus on quality and service. Not only that, but they manage to combine the thrill and luxury of safari with surprisingly affordable prices. Just three hours north of Johannesburg, this destination has a choice for everyone from honeymoon couples to adventurous families, single riders to groups of friends (non-riders also welcome).

Guests can opt for a 'Signature Safari', based out of the historic family property, or a mobile safari such as the 'African Explorer' which is organised in conjunction with Horizon Botswana. On the Signature Safari riders stay on Horizon's main property, set in a private game reserve alongside a beautiful lake with hippo and surrounding plains game. There is also a chance to sleep under canvas, traditional 'safari style', by incorporating some nights in Horizon's own tented camp, Camp Davidson. When based on the main property guests can ride safe in the knowledge that whilst they may see the beautiful likes of zebra and giraffe, there are none of the animals considered most dangerous (primarily elephants and big cats).

Safaris at Horizon can be tailor made to suit your needs. With a large herd of horses available, there is a suitable partner for every level of rider including safe mounts for beginners and children (and some spicier options for those who like some spirit!). The choices of riding are almost endless and include outrides through the game reserve, swimming with the horses in the lake, western games, polocrosse or perhaps even cross country jumping. Weddings can also be arranged here and you will find it the ideal setting for such special occasions.

All the team from Far and Ride have been lucky enough to ride here on different occasions and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Dinner is a sociable and sumptuous affair, during which the day's adventures or misadventures are accounted with great delight. The carefully planned three-course menus are accompanied by a selection of fine South African wines. Fresh vegetables and home grown herbs are used in all recipes with home made bread and cakes which are baked on a daily basis.

Testimonials

Hennie & Danno, June 29, 2022

Fantastic horses, amazing accommodation, plenty of nice food and a nice intro to safari riding... If you felt anything wasn't quite right, they listened and helped sort it.


Seema, Feb. 18, 2020

Very chilled and hospitable place, really well planned and thoughtful touches in the accommodation, really appreciated the daily laundry and the food was divine! The horse matching was excellent, the rides were varied with galloping on open plains, being able to look at the scenery and trust my horse was just amazing! I had been so well prepared by the Far and Ride team they answered all my questions and I can't wait to book my next trip with them.


Calvin and Susan, May 8, 2018

This was the trip of a lifetime! It was absolutely wonderful. Probably one of the best memories was cantering with the zebras and then having a family of warthogs spring up out of the grass right in front of us. Camp Davidson was really special too. (Horizon Lodge and Camp Davidson)


Chris & Gerry G. (Horizon & Jaci's Lodge combination), Nov. 3, 2017

A wonderful experience! Split between 2 very different locations and types fo safari. The first - horse riding on a secure reserve gave our group of 3 the opportunity to get close to the animals (a great range, excluding lion, elephant, buffalo) in a natural environment. Great riding - it felt safe at all times, despite the hippo and crocodile. Jaci's Tree Lodge safari - a great follow-on vehicle safari giving us close viewing of so many more (some endangered) species - overall a brilliant experience that just grew and grew with each day. (Accommodation?) Both locations - really excellent! Loved the horses (at Horizon) all individuals, but so responsive and willing to move! The fact that the herd of 80 plus horses were free on the reserve gave an added element to the horses' relationship with the Horizon team. (Favourite memory?) Horizon - walking on horseback so close to the giraffe, zebra, etc. The fast canters, gallops, the polocrosse and jumping - all great fun. Jaci's tree lodge - probably 2 young elephants play-fighting for over half an hour in the pool next to the lodge.


Samantha K., Oct. 17, 2017

It was an amazing experience. Wonderful holiday. (Favourite memory?) Swimming with the horses.


Jane L., May 18, 2016

The best riding holiday I've ever done (and I've done a lot over the years). Horizon blew me away - I cried when I left! Such a beautiful place and so well run, with the guests' and horses' needs at the heart of everything.


Anne L., April 8, 2015

I had a really good time, the people, staff and guests were great. The staff look after you very well and become more like friends than staff. I ended up with a couple of horses that I really trusted. The guides were very knowledgeable. It was the perfect holiday – action on the horses and relaxation and eating in between, and boy, was the food good. Not hotel stuff, but very good home cooked food. I even came home with a recipe from Ryno.


Itinerary & Pricing

Day 1

Riding: 1 - 2 hours

You will be collected from Johannesburg OR Tambo International airport and transferred c. 3 hours to the lodge, arriving in time for a late lunch. In the afternoon you will be able to join your first ride, which is a relaxed affair to give you the opportunity to settle into your surroundings. Crossing the plains, enjoy your first encounter with wildlife on horseback such as ostrich, impala, zebra, kudu, eland or giraffe.

A stunning lookout spot for sundowner drinks is a welcome moment to take in your first taste of Africa after a long journey, before returning to the lodge for a three course dinner.

Days 2 to 7

Riding: 4 - 6 hours

During a typical seven day holiday, guests have the chance to explore a wide area (21,000 acres) on horseback, venturing into different parts of the reserve and the conservancy. There are two riding activities per day - a longer morning ride (up to 3 - 4 hours) and a shorter afternoon ride (1 - 2 hours). Below we have detailed the different kind of rides you can experience during your stay, depending on your riding ability and preferences.

Out Rides and Game Viewing

Observing the local wildlife and seeing the bush from horseback is simply the best way! The sandy tracks wind through areas of thicker bush as well as open plains and the going is easy for both riders and horses. The game here doesn't view horse and rider combinations as a threat so you are able to ride close to animals such as giraffe and zebra.

Conservancy Ride

During your stay there is usually the opportunity for a full day ride, heading west into the conservancy game reserve. This route allows for long canters and the chance to see some different animals including large herds of wildebeest, hartebeest, sable, eland and blesbok. Buffalo, ostrich, kudu, waterbuck and impala may also be encountered. 

You eat lunch at the conservancy lodge and take a rest by the pool before making your way back to base, arriving in time for sundowners, although there is the option for an overnight out in the conservancy if you prefer (please enquire). 

Polocrosse

This is open to novice riders as well as those more secure in the saddle - your hosts will teach you how to play and find that guests often get quite competitive after a few chukkas! The game combines polo and lacrosse and uses a soft ball and lacrosse-like sticks. Players are divided into teams of three (a scorer, centre and defence) and the game starts with a line-out where the umpire throws the ball into play. The aim of the game is to pick up and throw or steal the ball in order to shoot and score a goal, but tactics may even include riding opponents off the pitch. Here at Far and Ride we LOVE the game with all of us having tried it during our own visits to Horizon. 

Swimming with your Horse

This is one of the most popular activities at Horizon, especially for those who have not done it before. After a morning ride and providing conditions allow, you have the chance to take your horse swimming in the dam by the lodge. The motion of horses swimming underneath you is a wonderful feeling and it's the perfect way to cool off after a morning in the saddle. 

Western Games

A team of guides run a western games afternoon which is full of great exercises to test the skills of both children and adult riders. Activities may include pole-bending, barrel-racing, threading a sword through a stirrup, hunting a marshmallow, musical horses and more. Brings out the team spirit in guests and is a real hit with younger riders especially. 

Cross Country Jumping

For those with prior jumping experience, there is the chance to try some cross country jumping on the small course on site. Jumping is for individuals or small groups and includes a warm-up and a few practice jumps, following by jumping the course around the lake. English jumping saddles are used for this activity. 

There is also a number of small jumps and jumping lanes which are suitable for less experienced riders and incorporated into the out rides. 

Village Ride to the Local School

On the greater farm lies a small village called Lehlabile, comprising around 40 Sotho dwellings, a small primary school and creche. Many of the Horizon staff were born in the village and grew up there. This ride takes you through the village to the local school - you can see the traditionally painted houses, chat to villages and meet the children at the school. The children will often sing and dance for you and if you'd like to bring anything for them, they love donations of crayons, pencils, paper paint, play dough, secondhand books and toys

Day 8

Riding: 3 - 4 hours

On your final day there is usually time for one last ride on your favourite horse before a delicious lunch. You may have to check-out of your room if other guests are arriving but can relax in the communal spaces until your transfer arrives to whisk you back to Johannesburg airport.

Accommodation

Guests can stay in a room or chalet at the main lodge or may wish to spend some nights in Horizon's tented camp, Camp Davidson.

Experience Beginner / Intermediate / Experienced

All abilities welcome. Rides are split so that experienced riders can enjoy faster riding, whilst beginners take things easy.

Day 1

Riding: 1 - 2 hours

You will be met at Johannesburg International Airport and transferred to Camp Davidson (approximately 3 hours) in time for a late lunch. In the afternoon you are introduced to your safari horse, ensuring that you are matched with a horse to suit your ability and experience before you head off on your first ride. This first ride is a relaxed affair to give you the opportunity to settle into your new surroundings. Crossing the plains, enjoy your first encounter with wildlife on horseback such as ostrich, impala, zebra, kudu, eland, giraffe, warthog and jackal.

A stunning lookout spot for sundowner drinks is a welcome moment to take in your first taste of Africa after a long journey before returning to Camp Davidson for a three course dinner.

Day 2

Riding: 4 - 6 hours

Todays ride sets out from the high country overlooking a beautiful wilderness area to the east and heads south, winding along the banks of Sunset Lake where resident Fish Eagles and Spur-Winged Geese are often spotted, as well as a pod of resident hippo. Later ride through the open savannah where wildebeest and zebra can be encountered. The riding is varied, from canters along sandy tracks to winding through rocky outcrops and densely wooded areas. Weather permitting there may be a chance to take the horses for a swim in one of the dams before returning to camp for lunch and a chance to relax by the pool.

The afternoon ride offers more chance for hippo viewing and some great long canters.

Day 3

Riding: 4 - 6 hours

Todays ride heads to the game conservancy which is home to Bellevue Lodge. The ride traverses a wide wetland, home to reedbuck and grass owls, before entering dense woodland dotted with wild fig trees and large fruited bushwillows. Here it crosses the watershed and descends through open grasslands with sweeping views to the upper reaches of the conservancy's main water system. Your route passes the favoured habitat of waterbuck and Cape buffalo. The open plains that follow are aptly known as Little Serengeti and are filled with large herds of blesbuck, eland, wildebeest and kudu as well as elegant sable, swift red hartebeest and impressive journeys of giraffe and Cape buffalo. After a lunch at the lodge and a rest by the pool, the afternoon continue to explore this game rich area, closing with sundowners overlooking the African plains.

Overnight Bellevue Lodges.

Day 4

Riding: 4 - 6 hours

A morning ride from the lodge in search of buffalo before returning to the lodge for lunch and a chance to relax and enjoy this beautiful setting before riding back to Horizon lodge in the afternoon. Say goodbye to your horses and head back up to Camp Davidson for a final night in South Africa.

Day 5

Riding: 2 - 4 hours

An early ride down from Camp Davidson to Horizon Lodge where there's time to quickly freshen up before jumping into the vehicle for the transfer to Botswana, which aims to depart at 9am. You'll arrive at Mashatu in time for lunch before changing into your riding clothes and heading out on your first afternoon ride to experience your new horses before arriving at the newly built Tree camp.

Day 6

Riding: 4 - 6 hours

An early wake up call with tea/coffee brought to your tent followed by breakfast around the camp fire. You will make an early start each day to enjoy the freshness of the morning and to maximise game viewing opportunities in the hours the wildlife are most active. Undoubtedly you will come across the large herd of elephant for which the Tuli is renowned as well as many different species of antelope, giraffe, zebra, bat eared fox, jackal, hyena and possibly even lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah. 

Depart Tree Camp and explore the centre of the reserve and game rich Pitsane river area before arriving at Two Mashatus camp in time for lunch and a cooling afternoons rest beside the pool.

In the afternoon you can either ride or take a game drive to the south-western side of the reserve, which is an area not reached on horseback during this itinerary. It is an area which is rich in game with a resident pride of lion. The highlight of the drive is a sundowner in the ancient landscape of rock formations of the Mmagwa hills, with vast vistas into the setting sun.

Day 7

Riding: 4 - 6 hours

Full morning ride from Two Mashatus camp.

The afternoon brings the chance to choose between a bush walk, afternoon ride or possibly a game drive with Mashatu looking for cats (subject to availability and an additional charge of USD 65 per person). Return to Two Mashatu camp for your last night in Africa.

Day 8

Riding: 1 - 2 hours

A final early morning ride back to the stables, taking one last photo of elephant of enjoying a long and winding canter through the scattered Mustard bush. At the stables there is time for a quick shower and brunch before heading back to the airport.

Light aircraft transfer back to Johannesburg airport for your flight home.

Please be aware that due to changes in weather and other unforeseen events, the itinerary may be changed at the last minute. We will endeavour to keep everyone informed of any changes and the reason for them.
