There’s something special about seeing a place on horseback. Take a slow trot as you appreciate the views and enjoy the fresh air filling your lungs and exhilaration pumping through your veins.
Horse riding at Grootbos is suitable for anyone, whether you’re a complete novice or a more experienced rider. Go for a relaxed ride through the fynbos and enjoy its natural beauty. Our 18 horses in the stable on our reserve are well exercised and expertly trained, while all of our guides have years of experience in dealing with these noble animals.
The Best in South Africa! Super interesting and I would recommend it over any other. I also went horse riding twice.
Grootbos, the Cape's best kept secret. Amazing for walking, running, mountain biking, and horse riding as often as you want.
Tranquil beauty - we enjoyed horseback riding, 4x4 tour, caves, whale watching, the spa and of course the food. There were other activities offered but our kids loved the horses.
This is definitely a bucket list destination.
Absolutely stunning, we went horse riding on the beach which was absolutely phenomenal.
Grootbos is a world leader in sustainable tourism and has been awarded some of the highest international accolades possible, making us one of only a handful of lodges to achieve this.
We welcome South Africans and invite you to experience Grootbos with our special offer.
The last year has been a busy one at Grootbos. We rebuilt our beloved Garden Lodge entirely and re-opened it in April 2022. We also officially launched the Grootbos Florilegium - Africa's first contemporary florilegium - which is a collection of botanical illustrations created by local and international artists, depicting the charismatic plants found on our reserve and the surrounding regions.
