Experience a safari from a different point of view – on the back of a horse! With a qualified guide, you will be able to see a variety of plains game as well as different birds, reptiles, flora and fauna. You can be an experienced rider or a novice rider – there is something for everyone.

The stables on the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate are run by horse-lovers and dedicated conservationists. The horses are used to the resident wildlife and you’ll enjoy the curious stares of zebras and wildebeest as you encounter them on your ride through the bush. This is a truly privileged, one-of-a-kind experience that we’re proud to offer.

“For a luxurious, affordable and relaxing stay in the Hoedspruit area look no further. The accommodation (book the honeymoon suite) is excellent and we were well looked after by a very professional Tanja and her team. The meals were out of this world and they went out of their way to make us feel special. We will return!”

“A huge amount of thought put into the design of the lodge and Arnold has very good staff in Tanya and Martin. Tanya was very pleasant and you are doing a great job for such a new place. Top marks and we wish you every success. Best regards Ali and T”

John – South Africa

“I had a wonderful break at Unembeza, albeit only one night. Great staff, great food and wine and really well designed environment made it feel like a home in the bush. Sipping wine on the outside deck whilst munching a perfectly cooked African steak while wild animals walked past was the highlight.”
