Horse Trails

Nestled at the foothills of this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage site for exceptional natural beauty, Khotso has become synonymous with horse riding in the Southern Drakensberg.

1-hour ride  •  2-hour ride  •  3-hour ride  •  full day ride  •  sunset ride   

Open all year round, our horse trails all start from the Khotso Backpackers Lodge and criss-cross over 1,300 hectares of rolling Khotso land. Eland’s Peak sits at 1,800m above sea level, whilst 5km of the beautiful Mzimkulu River flows through the farm as well. Let our experienced grooms and volunteers saddle up and guide you to panoramic views and embrace just how exhilarating the spirit of freedom can be when you ride out over the ridges and flats of the land with the mountains laid out in front of you.
