I have been to horizon three times now, the last time being around 12 years ago.... There is always that worry that it will disappoint. I need not have worried. I travelled with my 16 yo daughter a friend and her two teenagers. We had the most amazing holiday. Fantastic happy horses, staff who go out of thier way to... More

I went to Horizon for a week with a friend in June and we had a great time. The horses, the hospitality, the room, and the views were all wonderful. Breakfast was at 7:30 with a ride from 8-11:30am, lunch at 12, tea at 3:30, and then a ride from 4:30 to 6pm. Dinner was at 7:30. Each day they... More

This was our first time at Horizon, we had spent six nights at Ants. This was different in a good way. Our lodge looked over a dam in which there were a family of Hippos. Our very first sighting of hippo in four trips to Africa and it was special, we were having lunch on the lawn and the whole... More

Just back from 8 days at Horizon & it was truely a dream holiday. So beautiful and well run: nothing too much trouble. Saw plenty of game but my highlights were: swimming with the horses (twice), seeing a lion family & elephants up close on the Entabeni game drive, seeing stars like you never do in UK, spending a night...

The lodge is set amongst some of the most stunning scenery South Africa has to offer. The riding itself was incredible, with beautiful tracks that weave through the bush, allowing exhilarating canters that get the heart racing and give you the sense of freedom we all yearn for. From water features with hippo to open grassland with a mixture of... More

This was our second visit to Horizon and it will not be our last! It was hard to see how our first trip could be bettered but Horizon keeps on delivering a fabulous riding experience. Highlights included sundowners on the jetty with hippos calling on one side and a fabulous choir singing on the other - it doesn't get any... More

My cousin booked this holiday direct as she lives in SA. This place was amazing. Our room was huge and comfortable and overlooked the lake where horses and hippo grazed and swam. The hospitality was incredible and very homely. The food was beautifully cooked and there was always plenty of it. Unlimited drinks and fruit were available at all times.... More

I visited Horizon as a solo traveler and an intermediate rider, and could not have had a better experience--the staff, the facilities, and above all the horses were wonderful. Riders are grouped by skill level, and each ride tailored to what you want to do or see. We spent one morning following hippo tracks along the waterways, another morning meandering... More

It was a slice of heaven. From the owners Shane and Laura, to Kirsty the manager, to the rest of the staff and guides, you could not ask for a better get away. Whether you are an expert rider, or beginner, they look after every detail. Love that there are no TV's. Love the High Tea's at 4, the evening... More

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
