Horseback Africa Pretoria

A feeling of pure nature - on the back of a horse (perfectly trained and healthy, absolutely trustworthy), with a lion during the walk or cuddling a lion baby.
The horseback safari was amazing, very well trained horses and we got to see all the different animals in the park.

Excellent picnic spot, very beautiful scenery for the water falls, greenery , very quite place, many species of birds and trees and good place to ponder and also relaxation with the nature.

What an awesome place to visit, the caves are full of fascinating facts and also in places you have to really get down to nature on your knees as the ceilings are very low.

The arrangements were done to our satisfaction and the park exceeded our expectations- especially the perfectly executed crocodile shaped cake included in our party package.
It's a great day out, you can join it with the lion park which is close by and it then fills your day.

We hiked through Faerie Glen as part of an organised hike from Moraleta Kloof nature reserve; meandering next to the spruit in this nature reserve.
This reserve is also nice to go for a run as there is a lot of trails that is mostly flat and running through nature beats the streets any day.
