Horseback riding

There is something unique and special about horse riding through the surf – especially when that surf is breaking on to one of the Western Cape’s most spectacular beaches. This two-hour guided beach ride along the isolated Noordhoek Beach, right along the waters’ edge and heading towards the steep crags of Chapman’s Peak, will not only inspire you with stunning views, but will provide ample opportunity to witness the wild bird life, whales, dolphins, otters, and seals that are so plentiful along this coast in their natural habitat.

The area offers great hiking trails which vary in difficulty, from easy to challenging. They all offer breathtaking views of the flora and fauna as well as of the coastline. Locally we have the Slangkop Trail which starts within walking distance. Further away Silvermine Nature Reserve offers a variety of trails and so does Chapman’s Peak.
