Beach Safari On Horseback – 1 HourItem No.: KN4001BHS
Take a horseback ride in the pristine iSimangaliso Wetland Park – South Africa’s first and famous UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Our beach ride starts at the St Lucia Main Beach.
We take the horses down to the water’s edge and head either north towards First Rocks or south towards the St Lucia Estuary, riding on kilometres of clean white sand, with the Indian Ocean rolling in alongside.
During the whale season (June-Nov) we often see humpbacks breaching out in the deeper water on their way to their breeding grounds in Mozambique. From Nov to Feb we search for the tracks of turtles, who’ve dug their nests above the high tide mark in the warm sand the night before.
For the rest of the year we enjoy dolphins playing in the surf, hippo pods relaxing in the estuary, crocodiles sunning themselves on the sandy banks, or just gaze at the amazing views along the beach, amongst the highest forested sand dunes in Africa.
Our beach rides are low tide dependent and can only take place 2 hours either side of low tide.
Children must be over 8 years old for a beach ride, or have prior riding experience.
