During the holiday, you will stay at Kei Mouth Guest Lodge for five nights and Wavecrest Hotel for two nights.


The Kei River Horse Trail is a base ride with a two-night / three-day mini trail up the coast. It runs from Saturday at 1 p.m. to Saturday at 12 p.m. There is no fixed itinerary, as the riding is customized to each person requirements. Riding included is two to four or five hours per day, split into morning and afternoon rides or full day rides.

For the first few days you will enjoy being with the horses and exploring the local area. You will visit waterfalls and cliff tops, hidden coves and local favorite pubs and restaurants for delicious lunches, canter the beaches, and play in the ocean. Then it’s off on a mini trail up the coast for three days of riding adventures and two nights at the lovely Wavecrest Beach Hotel & Spa. The last night is back at the guest lodge and you may squeeze in a final ride if you have time on the morning of departure.

Wild Coast Horse Riding Adventures has had riders as young as 7 and as old as 75 doing their riding holidays. They would not recommend children under 12 doing the Wild Coast Trail. Their Kei River riding holidays are suitable for all ages and abilities.


This is a base ride situated in the seaside village of Kei Mouth on the Wild Coast of South Africa.
