Klein Karoo Horse Adventures

De Rust

At Klein Karoo Horse Adventures we take you into the veld, where our heart is. Hosted by the owners of two neighbouring family farms, we follow old jeep tracks and game paths through the foothills of the spectacular Swartberg mountain range. We use descendants of the Cape Riding Horses, a local breed with a noble history. These horses have excellent temperaments and are extremely surefooted.

Come experience the delights of abundant bird life, aromatic botanical delights and small game, amidst pristine nature and the alluring quiet of the Klein Karoo. If you want to experience nature at its finest, close up and vibrant, you should not miss this opportunity!
