About Hog Hollow Horse Trails

The Tsitsikamma is an exquisite part of the Garden Route in South Africa. It is breath-taking in its natural splendour and its abundance in fauna and flora, and continues to be one of the most frequently visited and loved places in the Western Cape. One of the best ways to experience this beauty is on horseback.

Hog Hollow Horse Trails offers locals and visitors the opportunity to smell the fynbos and ferns, to feel the sunshine and to experience the sensation of Africa on their minds and hearts as they venture out into the countryside on one of the well-trained and responsive horses. Travel through the Western Cape and see the forests, mountains and valleys for which the Tsitsikamma is known around the world.
