Would you like to ride horses through a stunning game reserve filled with non-dangerous game where the Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest and a multitude of different antelope can be closely approached on horseback?
Would you like to ride across rolling hills, and into deep forested kloofs searching for the elusive Kudu & Bush Buck?
Then canter down endless beaches and wonder through rural Xhosa villages all from the back of beautiful, well schooled horses?
A 3 night 4 days stay at the Endalweni Private Game reserve followed by a 4 night adventure along the Wild Coast will give you an authentic taste of rural Africa. The 7 night 8 day Wild Coast Horse Safari is a wonderful combination of bush & beach riding through a stunning eco environment with breathtaking views from every hill top.
Ideal for most riders who are comfortable in the saddle – can walk, trot & canter on a well schooled horse – and non riders are welcome to join the group as there are plenty of walks and things to do. Advanced riders will be delighted with the different pace options on our responsive and fit horses.
To get a feel for what you’ll be doing if you win that GRAND PRIZE, here is a clip of a Wild Coast Horseback Adventure!
PLEASE NOTE: All riding and itineraries are subject to change due to variations in local conditions, riders abilities, the weather & influences of the sea tides and during the rainy season the conditions of the rivers at the time of riding.
GETTING THERE: Fly to East London, or drive to Endalweni Game Reserve.

‘If you want a glimpse of the soul of the new South Africa in all its glory, and with all the gory details of its problems and corruption, Meyer is your man.’ Matthew Lewin, The Guardian
Janet Dixon grew up in the Karoo, the harsh and intricate beauty of the semi-desert providing a well of inspiration. She loves painting aloes and uses them as a metaphor to allude to the resilience of the natural world as well as the inner world of the human psyche.
A practicing medical doctor, Janet is a keen observer of the human condition. Her medical studies heightened her awareness of the complexities of the human body as a divinely orchestrated “machine”. Janet celebrates these intricacies in her art through the metaphor.
Janet’s first solo exhibition took place in 2008. Her work has been shown in various local exhibitions and is held in private collections around the world.
Janet is one of Laura’s sisters!
THE BIG QUESTION to ask about your Arabian: Will this horse carry me and my gear across a continent, fighting battles along the way?
If you suspect the answer is no, why not? Your Arabian horse is descended from forebears through thousands of years who could do just that. What has gone wrong? What has your horse lost, and why? You can’t ride on a pretty head. It’s worthless without the rest of the package. If you are a breeder, change your direction, don’t ruin what you have inherited, keep it right for your great-grandchildren.
We use SA Old English Bloodlines to preserve a precious genetic heirloom; the bloodlines that were used to establish the Arabian as a pure breed in South Africa.
By far the most came to SA via the United Kingdom, mainly as a result of the life work of the Blunts in securing very good horses during their travels among the Bedouin and taking them to England to their Crabbet Stud and later some to their satellite stud, Sheikh Obeyd, in Egypt. The majority of Old English horses that made up the foundation of Arabian breeding in South Africa were only a few generations away from those desert-bred horses.
PERSEVERANCE Arabian & Endurance Horses – Barefoot, bitless & fearless.
It’s a huge honour: it’s the first time that a barefoot horse will represent South Africa overseas. Now we have a mammoth task ahead of us… There is no official sponsor for the team, and we need to raise close to R400,000 most of which is for Mauser’s transport and quarantine alone! But YOU can help, by buying tickets for Laura & Mauser’s World Champs Raffle!
The Grand Prize is a whopping 7 night holiday for 2 people with Wild Coast Horse Safaris, worth R35,000 (£3.500).
