HORSE TRAILS

 

 

BRING YOUR OWN HORSE/S

With 2000 acres and some 35km of internal game and ranch trails and roads to explore there can be no better adventure for you and your horse 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.                              

R120 per horse per night/day.

 

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 cattle.                                                             

 R250 per person.

TWO HOUR TRAIL

This trail is for experienced riders only and allows us to truly explore the bushveld, the plains and high into the mountain slopes. There are opportunities for exhilarating canters and leisurely trots as well as steeper ascents and descents. Depending on the mood of the group, this trail also stops off at more viewpoints and lingers longer when coming upon game.                                

R350 per person.
