Attraction details
Owner description: Just 10 km outside Jeffreys Bay and 70 km from Port Elizabeth, between the Gamtoos and Kabeljous rivers, lies the farm Papiesfontein. Here, on this special piece of land, the unique combination of bush, river and beach come together to offer you an unforgettable ride. Experienced guides escort riders twice daily along the 13km circular route. The trail takes about two hours to complete, leading through beautiful fynbos coastal vegetation, towards the Gamtoos river with breathtaking views from the dunes and finally returning along a 6 km stretch of deserted beach. Here on this isolated beach, riders can canter their mounts in the shallows or have an exhilarating gallop on the sand.The trail provides magnificent views of the area and affords ample opportunity to spot a variety of bird species, tortoises, bushbuck, plant and marine life. Imagine whale watching from horseback!

Great ride and all horses were in good condition.
They made me feel very welcome and picked a horse for each person's ability level.
It was a 2 hour trek experiencing different terrains through woodland, across a stream, up and down sand dunes and a galloping finale for miles along the beach.

I enjoyed my ride here. It takes about an hour and you spend about 25 minutes riding along the beach. They have lots of horses to choose from, and match you up with one depending on your riding skills. I am an experienced rider and they gave me a young gelding who was very alert and responsive but just a tad spooky. My friend had never ridden and she got a solid mare that gave her no problems. If you feel comfortable you are free to have a gallop on the sand - amazing! The staff is young, but very nice. I would go here again.
