Horse riding along the beaches of the Wild Coast offers some of the most perfect and spectacular horse riding countryside found anywhere in the world.  
At the Great Kei River, a pontoon will transport you and your horse into rural Africa where sleepy tribal villages await you. As you ride through undulating hills, comfortable hotels are nestled in coves along the coast, providing perfect stop off points for horse and rider.
Explore the rolling hills and savanna grasslands, home to a kaleidoscope of gaily painted rondavels, that form the heart of the Transkei landscape. You will experience a rainbow of people and a community working together supported by tourism. We have horses to suit all riding categories, they are very fit and obedient.  Rolling hills, deep gorges, and cliff tops that plunge into the ocean ensure that this is not just a beach ride; it’s an adventure!  The beach canters are exhilarating, the environment pristine, and the views stunning. In this rural African wilderness, the local Xhosa people are warm and friendly as we meander through their forgotten villages.



We use South African hand-made Liversage saddles. Leon Liversage & his son have been making Trail-Riding and Endurance saddles since the early ’90s. The view has always been that saddles should be designed for the comfort of both horse and rider alike. We require all clients to wear a riding hat. We only ride traditional English style.

We definitely encourage you to bring your own well-fitted helmet! Check out our suggested packing list.

There is a weight limit of 95kg.

Please feel free to contact Mark at StoryScape Travel (082 7086296) if you have any questions regarding the Horse Riding.



You will be accommodated at Kei Mouth Guest Lodge, situated in the village of Kei Mouth. The rooms are very comfortable with twin beds and en-suite bathrooms. In principle, ladies will be sharing a room. However, we do have a few single supplement rooms available, only on request. The food is hearty, healthy home-cooked fair.

The horses are at the Country Club, 1.5 km from the Guest Lodge.

 • Wi-Fi is available throughout the Guest Lodge
