Horizon Horseback Safaris offer fantastically varied and affordable horse riding holidays in South Africa.

Horizon was established in 1993 and is based in the malaria free Waterberg Mountains, 3 hours from Johannesburg. The emphasis is on quality riding and exceptional hospitality. They offer, not only close encounters with game, but also a diverse range of other riding experiences including polocrosse, cross country jumping, cattle mustering, bareback swimming, and the African Explorer Safari which is a week long safari combining South Africa with Limpopo Horse Safaris in Botswana.

Horizon Horseback Safaris can cater for any age and any level of experience. They are 100% flexible and pride themselves on personalising each itinerary according to the capabilities and interests of the client. This, alongside an exceptionally fun and friendly atmosphere, is the reason that Horizon has an unparalleled rate of return guests.



Horizon Lodge has two house rooms, four garden chalets and one lakeside family cottage. 

Camp Davidson has four tents. 

The Waterberg is a year round destination and Horizon is open permanently. 

Children are welcome and school holidays are very popular for families. Rides are separated so that the children can play together.

Horizon is a three hour road transfer from Johannesburg Airport.
