On arrival at East London airport, you will be transferred to Kei Mouth and the beach base of Wild Coast Horse Trails and their equestrian colleagues. A light snack will be served at the Kei Mouth Guest House, and you will change into your riding clothes. Your horse riding adventure starts now!

The afternoon ride will take you on an hour or so ride to asses your riding and to make sure that we have matched you to the right horse. You will go down to the river mouth and you will have a chance to have your first canter along our beautiful beaches.

It is a full days riding along the coast, and the scenery is simply stunning. There is a good chance of spotting dolphins racing us in the surf as we canter long the many beaches.

Day 3

The departure time this morning is dictated by the tide. It a fantastic 3-hour ride either up the beach and back across country through rolling hills and traditional villages or the other way around, depending on the tides. Either way you get to ride on the hard, wet beach at low tide – the gallops are exhilarating. We are back at the hotel in time for lunch. Alternatively, if the weather and tides are favorable we may take a picnic. This afternoon has a choice of activities. You can take a boat trip up the river and explore the stunning mangrove estuary of the Nxaxo river by canoe or boat, hike or just kick back and relax in the Jacuzzi! – this afternoon is flexible as there are so many options to experience!!!

Day 4

Today we start our journey back to Kei Mouth. We ride inland this morning, crossing the river high up and away from the tides influence. The slay paths and track offer great canters as we wind our way back to the beach. Then we head towards Kei Mouth and the pontoon crossing before dropping the horses off at the paddocks before we have a late lunch at one of the local restaurants.

Then it is a time to wander back to the guest house, and your final night on the Wild Coast

Day 5

On your last morning you will explore the cliffs and village of Morgan Bay and have one last canter down the beach.

You will be able to shower and change before departure and promises of returning to do another great Wild Coast Horse Trail.

Location

This horseback trail will take you exploring the sea side villages of Kei Mouth and Morgan Bay, and then across the Great Kei River on a ferry to Trennerys for a day of fabulous beach riding.

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.
