Twice Daily horse rides in the Knysna forest
At reception you will be welcomed by the Glinister family. This forest getaway is a must for nature lovers. Twenty well-trained and cared for horses welcome you from the green pastures. Twice daily visitors go on an unforgettable forest horse ride, accompanied by experienced guides. From beginners to experienced riders can enjoy the lovely Knysna forest, indigenous trees, giant strelitzia, ferns growing wild, fynbos, small streams, mountain views from another angle, on horseback. Adventure freaks can ride to the Indian Teepee camp in the forest, relax around the campfire, listen to tall stories told by the guide while preparing a mouth watering barbeque.
