This was my husband's and my first stop in our 2-week honeymoon in South Africa & Kenya. We had two choices when we booked this section of our trip - this place or Ant's Nest. We chose this one mainly due to affordability, as well as the fact that they offered some additional riding activities (polocrosse & jumping). I am... More

Was five stars in winter - same again in summer. A stunning setting with tremendous horses and a management who value their staff as their greatest asset. Like staying with friends but you don't have to wash up. Only problem is difficulty leaving.

The whole experience of a trip to Horizon is a total delight. (Well ok, no overnight flight is ever a total delight, but you get off in the morning to be picked up by a nice friendly, careful driver, and whisked off to horizon - just a little nap in the car on the way there...) And within hours of... More

Together with family friends we stayed at Horizon in December for only a couple of days and those couple of days turned out to be the best days we spent on our wonderful trip to South Africa. We were a mixed group of riders from a 55 year old beginner (my husband) to kids ages 15, 13, 11, and 9... More

I went for a Horse safari to Horizon. Had no expectations at all going there. Met so many positive and nice people, both staff and guests. Staff are all very professional in all they do: horse grooming, leading horse trails, entertaining guests etc. The kitchen, chief and his team deserve extra stars. The horses are very good and any rider... More

I have visited Horizon many times in the past and this trip was another example of why so many visitors return time and time again. Perfect in every detail - horses, food, accommodation and the friendliest most helpful staff you could ever ask for. If you only go on one horse riding holiday in your life then you must go... More

It was a wonderful holiday. we thoroughly enjoyed and very much hope to return. it was so much fun, the food was exceptional. There were very nose horses, with a huge selection so that, if you wanted you could ride a different horse on every outride. Playing polo cross there was great and jumping was amazing. Such a great experience.

The entire staff is very friendly, knowledgable and cater to your every need. Some rooms are in need of a little updating, but the others are very nice. Every meal exceeds expectations, the atmosphere is very relaxing and the horses are amazing!
