Your trail starts with crossing the Great Kei River on the ferry, and then lovely canters along the beach take you to Trennery's Hotel for a great pub lunch. The trek home is across country, meandering over the rolling hills and through the villages. Along the trail there are many lovely opportunities to take photos, and our guides are happy to stop and do a "photo shoot" on the beach and get you some fabulous pictures of you on a horse on the beach on the edge of Africa!

Wild Coast Horse Riding Adventures have been running incredible trails along one of the most diverse coastlines for the past 15 years. As a guide, I lead those trails for years and loved every second of it. The horses were too incredible for words - surefooted, responsive and reliable. All the saddles are Leon Liversage, making for a comfortable ride for both horse and human. If you haven't ridden the Wild Coast yet, it's time to put it on your bucket list.
Fantastic place, very well kept horses Awesome guides. Incredible views and just freaking wow beach Gallops
I was apprehensive about my centre-based and mini trail week when I found I was the only guest for half the week and the other half with a Frenchman, but it worked brilliantly; the staff made me feel part of the team. It was a really wonderful fun week. Stunning, untouched landscapes, miles of perfect beaches for fast riding, excellent, well loved horses and lovely staff. Highly recommended
Unsafe horses. Arabian horses. Only for very experienced riders. Take a good helmet and vest! Lovely area.
I really enjoyed doing the Wild Coast horse trails a few years back. It was a great experience and I would really love to do it again!
