Baviaans rides

When we settled in the Kareedouw area in 2007, we were overwhelmed by the incredible scenery in the Kouga and Baviaanskloof (canyon). We started negotiations with the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve to get permission for riding there, which we received in 2011. In March 2012, the first Baviaans horse riding trip was hosted. It was a great experience for every participant, and has been growing in popularity every year since.

To ride a horse in the Baviaanskloof is an incredible experience. The route takes us from the blue waters of the ocean over the Tsitsikamma mountains, through the Kromriver, over the Zuuranys mountains, through the Kouga and Nooitgedacht,over the Kouga mountains into the  Baviaanskloof; then over the Baviaanskloof mountains and Winterhoek mountains, through the beautiful Karoo field of Steytlerville; through the Grootriver Canyon and down into the Osseberg and into the Baviaanskloof at Patensie. 7 Biomes in 7 days...  Thrilling, breathtaking...

We offer two different types of rides, the nomadic rides (sleep at a different place every night ) and the cloverleaf rides (sleep at the same place and ride different circles every day). We also have shorter rides that give you glimpses into the essence of the Baviaanskloof, the  Int(r)o Baviaans and Exit(ed) Baviaans.
