Three friends and I had a delightful experience at Pete's Riding at Villiera Winery outside of Cape Town, South Africa. Deirdre, who is delightful, leads the ride through a private game reserve. Our ride was about 2 hours of pure pleasure seeing zebra, wildebeest, wild boar, springbucks, eland, giraffe and many other animals up close and personal. The giraffe were so curious that they wanted to come right up to us. It was a magical experience. The horses are a South African farm breed which is similar to the American Quarterhorse. For anyone who rides or simply wants to be close to the animals, I highly recommend this activity. I found Deirdre through googling horseback riding in Cape Town, her direct email is: email@example.com. You won't regret this experience!!! There is a restaurant on site to enjoy a meal or a cup of coffee before or after your ride. And, of course, wine tasting....but not on Sundays. We hired a car and driver from Rikkis cab company to take us from Cape Town proper out toward Stellenbosch for our ride. Mike, the Rikkis driver, showed up 15 minutes early and was most pleasant and professional. He waited for our horseback ride to be over and transported us back to our hotel. The entire experience far exceeded our expectations!
