The essence of Horse riding in False Bay
Set off to explore the picturesque False Bay Nature Reserve, part of the renowned iSimangaliso Wetland Park, on a scenic two-hour horseback ride. Swing into the saddle of a gentle steed, suitable for 12 years and older and every level of riding expertise. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park offers extraordinary habitats for you to discover as you ride through a diverse landscape of dense woodlands, azure lakes that feed into an aquamarine ocean, gilded sand dunes alongside and vast grasslands.
Your journey will take you through the shady sand forests of the park before reaching the pristine shoreline of False Bay, which stretches into the horizon. En route, you may encounter a plethora of bird species, as well as sightings of crocodiles sunning themselves along the shoreline, curious zebra cantering alongside your horse, wary impala twitching their ears at every sound and plump hippopotamus wallowing in the lakes. As you make your way along this beautiful stretch of coastline, be sure to keep an eye out for crisp white shells that echo the secrets of the sea, as well as delicate ammonite fossils, extinct marine molluscs dating back millions of years.
