Book a horse ride with BHANGAZI HORSE SAFARIS

Due to financial constraints as a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lack of tourists, we have had to scale down to remain financially viable. As a result:

  1. We have temporarily reduced the size of our herd, and from now on can only take a maximum of two (2) guests on a ride. The horses we have taken out of the herd are safe and have been moved to good grazing fields off-site for the time being. Once international tourism is back in earnest, we will be in the position to move our horses back and upscale our operation again.

  2. The current horse rides will be tailored to the rider with the least experience. Since we can no longer split the group, trotting and cantering will only be possible if both riders are experienced enough.

  3. We will only offer 2 scheduled rides a day at a set time, all starting at the stables:

    1. A 2,5 hour beach-only or a beach & game combo ride. Upon arrival, the guests will be able to choose if they want to include a game ride, or ride on the beach only.

    2. A 2 hours game ride.

    3. For those wishing to book a special ride, such as a wedding proposal ride, half-day ride, or to do a photoshoot with the horses, we offer the option to enquire through an online form.

  4. We can only take people over 6 years old, and that weigh under 90 Kg

  5. We will no longer offer rides on Sundays and Mondays. 

  6. It is no longer possible to book by telephone or email, as these will only be monitored once a week. The only way to make a booking is on the convenient button below, where you will be able to book in real-time and get immediate confirmation. We kindly request you to please also respect our privacy and not to contact us on our private phones.


We do realise that not everyone will be happy about those changes, and we apologise for the inconvenience caused. However, desperate times call for desperate measures and the above changes are necessary to ensure our continued survival as a viable tourism venture. Again, when tourism is back in earnest we will be able to quickly upscale again.


Thank you for your understanding and continued support.


Nick and Freya.

When horse riding, for either novices or 'old hands', there are few places in the world where you can ride in an area as unspoiled or beautiful as the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, KZN, South Africa.
