Day 1

You will arrive around lunch time and be ready for your first ride at 3 pm. This is a lovely one and a half our ride to the Kei River and your first beach canter!

Day 2

Today's riding begins at 9.30 am and heads towards the river and ferry crossing with the horses into the Transkei. It is a 2 to 3 hour ride along the beach to Trennery's hotel where you will enjoy a lovely pub lunch. You return to Kei Mouth in the afternoon by an inland route.

Day 3

This morning is a lovely two and a half hour ride into the village of Morgan Bay where you explore the magnificent cliff tops before finishing with a canter down the beach.

This horseback safari will take you along the Kei River in the heart of Kei Mouth situated in a tranquil street just off the main road. You are in an area known as “The Wild Coast” or the former home land of Transkei. This is now called Eastern Cape Province. The Wild Coast is the rugged, remote, fairly unpopulated stretch of South African coastline between East London and Port Edward, on the N2 between Durban in the north and Port Elizabeth in the south.

This stretch of some 280 kilometers of cliff faces, perfect beaches, and rich tidal estuaries is between the Mtamvuna River in the north, and the Great Kei River in the south. Inland, to the west, lie the Stormberg and Drakensberg mountain ranges, which reach on altitude of 2400 meters, descending to the Indian Ocean in the east. At the Wild Coast, the sun shines day after day, month after month, on this beautiful and extensive tract of undulating pastoral countryside studded with whitewashed, thatched rondavel huts.

You will be served daily breakfast during your stay. Breakfast includes cereal, yogurt, toast, preserves, as well as tea and coffee. Other meals are self-catering in the communal kitchen.

You can also enjoy one of the local restaurants that are all within walking distance. Please just let Wild Coast Horseback Adventures know if you have any particular eating problems. They will do their best to feed you.

    "Words cannot even say how good these guys are!! Julie-Ann and her Team here are not only great horse people (which helps as the horses are cared for properly!!) they are very knowledgeable about the areas that you ride through. With options of 7 day coast rides (for hardcore riders!) or more sedate surf and turf rides which include stunning beach rides (with an amazing gallop!) in land riding through the Transkei villages and ending it with a drive through a game park with giraffe, antelope, zebra and more! If you love to ride and are keen on adventure - this is the place for you!"

    "I had an amazing eights days riding the Wild Coast Trail and can't recommend it enough! It was an absolute pleasure to ride such a lovely horse. We traveled a good distance and often galloped the long beautiful beaches, she was foot perfect and never out of puff! The horses are an absolute credit to the team who were all fantastic, everything was perfectly organised and nothing too much trouble.The scenery is just stunning. We spotted whales and dolphins and got to explore the beautiful open countryside. Each hotel we stopped at along the route was a treat. Great food, accommodation and incredible views. A holiday to remember I would love to go back!"

    "My week on the Wild Coast was fantastic. The pony I rode, Thulane, was a perfect match for me, fast, lively, and forward going with the perfect personality. Our group wanted a fast ride and that is exactly what we got. The Wavecrest gallop was amazing! The guides were fabulous, the scenery was stunning. I had a wonderful time, the perfect holiday for me. Definitely a holiday to remember!"
