Horse back safari
Feb. 2020
My husband booked us for a two hour safari in the reserve to celebrate my birthday. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The guide is extremely professional, although we had a bit of a communication issue as he is from Malawi. The game is used to the horses and generally stand still for good photo opportunities.

Dear Wilna, Thank you very much for visiting us and we appreciate your positive review! Unfortunately in the meantime, the Nature Reserve has closed to the public. It now only offers self-catering accommodation and no longer activities such as horse riding and hiking. We can highly recommend Horse and Trails Unlimited in Hartbeespoort instead, where we even relocated some of our horses to. Michelle and her team will guarantee a great experience! They not only offer the best horse riding trails in the area, but also specialize in quad biking, massages and picnics for every occasion! Thank you again for visiting Silkaatsnek and we trust you will enjoy your activities at Horse and Trails Unlimited soon. Kind regards from the whole team

Excellent Horseback Safari
Apr. 2019 • Family
We had an amazing visit to the Silkaatsnek Reserve. The owners were very acccomodating and kind to our family. My husband and young son did a driving safari, while my two older children and myself did the horseback one. The kids were amazed with how close they could safely get to the animals, and the variety present. Our guide was top notch, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the Silkaatsnek Nature Reserve!

My husband and I stayed there in the 14-16 it was short but wow. It was absolutely stunning, the view and the room was beautiful. If you want the best view and customer service, this is the best place to stay. We will be going back again.

Safari horse ride

Great experience to get up close with wildlife and enjoy a different type of "game drive". The people are friendly and informative. The horses are well maintained and very safe.
