St Lucia Horse Riding Overnight Trail

The horses are mainly South African Boerperd, a strong, brave and sensitive horse, ideally suited for riding in the bush. Bhangazi has a variety of horses and each rider will be carefully matched to their mount to ensure whatever your experience you can enjoy this St Lucia Horse Riding adventure.

Departure times for the St Lucia Horse Riding on the beach is tide dependant. Meet early morning, low tide, at the local swimming beach, a five minute drive from Zulani Guest House. Enjoy a two hour ride north along the pristine St Lucia blonde beach that just seems to go on forever. For those who have never ridden before and even for ‘old hands’ there is little more romantic than a ride along the beautiful white sand beside rolling waves. On lucky days dolphins ride the waves along side as we head up the beach. In Summer we can see the tracks of turtles who came in the previous night to nest.

Close encounters with the game is assured. Horseback riding is a very natural way to watch game, being so quiet and peaceful that unless surprised the game often hardly bothers to move far off as the riders pass. Game viewing is good all year and on safari we expect to see a wide variety of antelope, kudu, bushbuck, red and grey duikers, warthogs, bush pigs, wildebeest, hippopotamus, zebra, crocodiles and the endangered coastal Oribi. We hope to see black and white rhinoceros, leopard, wild dog, hyaena and cape buffalo. This area is world renown for birding, the St Lucia Wetland Park has one of the highest bird counts in all Africa.
