"Being in the home of some of Africa's greatest conservation success stories and enjoying the beautiful scenery is something not to be missed, doing all of this on Horseback is is an experience of a lifetime."
With years of experience in providing a world class experience, Hluhluwe Horse Safaris would like to take you on an adventure ride through the beautiful False Bay Nature Reserve, part of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park and a World Heritage Site in northern KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
With horses to suit all ages and levels of experience the Horse Trails experience is one to be enjoyed by the whole family. Experience Nature up close and personal, enjoy the thrill of seeing Zebra, Impala, Kudu and Hippo without any disturbances.
We look forward to sharing our special piece of Africa with you, from the comfort of our well trained horses.
Hluhluwe Horseback Safari Adventure
Your Horseback safari adventure will begin at the Hluhluwe River Lodge and Adventure Centre in Hluhluwe, Kwa-Zulu Natal. Under the guidance of qualified guides you will be taken out into the False Bay Nature Reserve to experience the scenic beauty and tranquility of this world heritage site. As part of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, False Bay Nature Reserve is an area of grand Landscapes and beautiful Natural Bush and Sand Forest.
Having vast experience in the adventure tourism sector, we know that there are different levels of fitness and riding competence in our guests. It is with this in mind that we train each of our horses to provide a safe and enjoyable experience. With horses to suit each and every rider we spend time before the ride begins to find out just what you are comfortable with and make sure that you get the riding experience most suited to you.
Whether you are looking for a quiet ride through the sand forest to listen to the birds or a relaxed canter down the sandy plains of False Bay, we like to think we have a ride to suit every taste.
Getting up close to wildlife like Nyala, Zebra, Warthogs and Giraffe you will experience first hand what the Game Rangers of Old, men like Harry Wholuter who wrote "Game Ranger on Horseback", experienced on a day to day basis. You will get to understand the challenges faced by those who in the early days of "Operation White Rhino" were riding their horses through the same bush catching up the last of a disappearing population of Rhinos.

Enjoy the best safari experiences on horseback. Fabled close encounters with giraffe, rhino, buffalo and other fascinating wildlife are regular events for visitors. Rich bird life abounds in settings as diverse as the primordial sand forest and the open grass plains.
Under the care of competent rangers, guests are often rewarded with unusual sightings of many creatures at close range. Such as the rare Suni antelope which is one of the smallest antelope species in South Africa.
