Namela Horse Trails stables are situated in the Makutsi Conservancy, just 40 minutes from the renowned Kruger National Park. The riding trails stretch over privately owned and managed Bushveld properties, with stunning views of the Drakensberg and Murchison Mountains. Riders may encounter over 20 plains game species, 3 of the Big Five (Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino) and more than 350 bird species.
All our rides are guided by an experienced riding guide. Come and enjoy dawn or dusk rides that vary from one to four hours and during full moon, we offer exhilarating moonlight rides. The riding pace is determined by the riding skills of the guest. All the horses are trained in the classical English style to give a responsive Ride. Guests may choose to ride in comfortable trail rider saddles, Western Saddles or English General Purpose saddles.
