Attractions / Things to do
|Horseback Safaris: At Pakamisa we are specializing in pleasure riding holidays for families, groups and individuals. Each of our trial rides provides incredible game viewing on horseback while strolling through the plains and challenging climb ups of the rolling hills of the vast Pakamisa reserve. You may ride into a herd of impala or wildebeest and numerous warthogs will let you get close to them before they start trotting off. |
One of our professional guides will guide you through Pakamisa’s unspoilt wilderness areas, introduce you to the South African mammals, fauna & flora and share with you the excitement of a Horseback safari.
Combining the magnificent scenery with the thrill of riding amongst teeming herds of game is something no horse lover should miss.
Riding schedules are tailored to the requirements of each group or person, which starts from a beginner lesson of half an hour to a daily ride of up to six hours, with a break for a romantic Bush breakfast or picnic.
We use English and Western saddles and all our tack is of a high quality and in excellent condition.
Bush walks: For those visitors who would like to experiment Pakamisa on two legs rather than on four, there are numerous wonderful walks and trails through the valleys, along the river banks and up the Pakamisa mountain for the most rewarding panoramic view of 360 degrees.
Game drives: Tailor made activities also include the traditional game drives in the Pakamisa reserve, where you will be able to watch herds of antilopes, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, etc., and over 250 species of birds are spotted. You will be accompanied by our well-trained Game Rangers.
More activities: Archery and clay target shooting
Pakamisa is not a Big 5 Reserve. As a result our guests safely enjoy our game drives, bush walks and horse riding without the threat of predators.
