Our mission at African Dream Horse Safari is to show all who join us a fun and exciting way to work and learn about horses and the wildlife of South Africa.
The programme welcomes holiday makers and students who would like to spend their time with us living their ultimate African Dream. From horse trails through the bush and gaining horse riding skills with jumping and dressage lessons in the arena, to game drives in the nature reserves, to hiking through the mountains and swimming under waterfalls.
Our goal is to give you the best experience possible and to go home with a part of Africa in your heart forever.
Our holiday programme has been designed so that you will fully experience what African Dream and the beautiful Lowveld has to offer. Included in the programme are all equestrian activities, game drives on a Big 5 reserve and assisting at various outreach organisations once a week. You also have the opportunity to go on various excursions and see all that the area has to offer.
The internship programme offers interns a variety of projects for you to focus on for your university practical assignments such as specific wildlife research projects in the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate, as well as stable/horse management, events and business management at the stable yard and so many other options. We help you through your research and data collection while guiding you through the project you have chosen.
Our horse trails are offered to the public and we welcome beginner and advanced riders so that everyone gets to experience the beauty of the bush from horse back. There is a one hour and two hour trail available. There is no Big 5 where we do the horse safaris, except for leopard which is occasionally seen. We encounter various plains game such as impala, warthog, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and so much more.
The livery yard can hold up to 30 horses in our beautifully set up barns. They have paddocks for during the day time and we have incredibly dedicated grooms who take extra special care of the horses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We ensure that each horse gets exactly what they need and that their health comes first. We pride ourselves in a well-managed stable yard with happy and healthy horses.
We offer horse riding lessons to the community of Hoedspruit and welcome beginner and advanced riders alike. During the hour long lessons, we teach them the various skills you need to be an ethical and confident horse rider from grooming, to tacking up, to the general care of the horse. We do outrides, jumping, flat work and bareback riding so that you can learn a variety of skills but all at your own comfort level.
As a family run company, we pride ourselves in what we do and do it to the best of our ability and our main mission is to help you to live your dreams!!!
