than staying with us at Thaba Manzi Ranch. Visit with us for a weekend
or a week and your mounts will be accommodated in our spacious guest
paddocks and stables.

ONE HOUR TRAIL
Check in at the stable yard office where
riders are paired with their mounts. Aimed at those with little or no
experience we ride to the foot of the mountains where we visit the Boer
War gravesite. Riding on, we pass the second largest waterhole on the
ranch and we then make our way back to the homestead across the plains
past giraffe, hartebeest, blesbuck and ostriches.
R200 per person.
ONE AND A HALF HOUR TRAIL
After taking the same route as the one hour trail we
continue higher into the mountains stopping along the way at spectacular
viewing points. We pass through bushveld trails where we may be
fortunate to encounter the giraffe, nyala or impala before returning to
the homestead via the plains, taking time to say howdy to our Nguni
R250 per person.
TWO HOUR TRAIL

bushveld, the plains and high into the mountain slopes. There are
opportunities for exhilarating canters and leisurely trots as well as
