What the Expect from your Horseback Safari at Pakamisa
The first thing to expect is a very scenic adventure. Pakamisa is set on a lofty plateau in northern KwaZulu-Natal, with spectacular vistas made up of green valleys, bushveld plains and hillsides.
Riding is tailored to the requirements of each group, ranging from a 30-minute beginner’s lesson to a daily ride that could be anything up to five hours. Typically, the excursion will include a bush breakfast or picnic.
A professional guide will lead you on the trails through the wilderness, introducing you to animals and plants. Meet herds of impala, giraffe, wildebeest and warthogs on the journey over plains and hills.
The horses at Pakamisa are Pure Arabians, and cross-breeds with the indigenous South African “Boerperd”.
Pakamisa is a predator-free reserve, making it a safe place to view wildlife from the saddle. Families can feel at ease about including children to share the experience.
