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. Only in 2011 we got permission to do so. In March 2012, the first Baviaans horse riding trip was hosted. It was a great experience for every participant. And since then the trip is growing every year.

To ride horses 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 have organise 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). Are 7 days too long for you but you would love to see the beauty of the Baviaans from horse back?
