Horizon Horseback Classic Safari – Waterberg Limpopo Province, South Africa

The Classic Safari combines fabulous riding with amazing game viewing. Against the backdrop of the Waterberg mountain plateau, enjoy the exhilaration of riding with herds of plains game or the excitement of riding alongside endangered white rhino. This Safari is based on one of the pioneering game reserves in the Waterberg. The topography of the reserve is dramatic and varied, and includes pristine bushveld, hidden valleys, sweeping plains and endless vistas. Across its 25,000 acres, the diversity of species and sheer size of the herds of game, is remarkable. Species to be seen include buffalo, giraffe, hippo, zebra, wilderbeest and a wide array of antelope, including the impressive sable antelope. However, the most exciting, without doubt, is the highly endangered white rhinoceros. If you have never encountered a rhino on horseback before, do it before it is too late! The going on the reserve is exceptionally good, lending itself to some fast riding on long and winding tracks. Guests can experience that dream canter alongside herds of galloping zebra, with all its heart stopping adrenaline. http://www.ridinginafrica.com/clas_ridinglodge.html
