Horse Riding


Experience nature on horseback in the picturesque Tulbagh valley. A two day ride will take you through orchards, vineyards and indigenous mountain fynbos, with magnificent views from the mountain slopes.

Enjoy a traditional South African braai (barbecue) and a glass of wine before you overnight in a secluded hut where you will hear only the sounds of nature. On the second day the ride continues across streams and along the foothills of the Winterhoek mountains, with more beautiful views.

Visit the art gallery of the world famous painter, V Motousek, before unsaddling on the wine estate, Theuniskraal. Here the ride will be concluded with a cold lunch and wine from the estate.

Shorter rides can also be arranged.

Eco-Information on the Western Cape, South Africa.
Small pockets of Afro-Montane forest occur on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain above the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. One of the earliest references to these were made in Jan van Riebeeck's journal on Sunday, 9 June 1652, when the forests on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain were discovered.

The demand by the early settlers for wood for building the first fort, houses, a jetty, wagon making, ships, bridges, firewood, etc. eventually reduced the forests to the remnants that we have today.
