Beach Horse Trails - Jeffreys Bay

Just 10 km outside Jeffreys Bay and 70 km from Port Elizabeth, between the Gamtoos and Kabeljous rivers, lies the farm Papiesfontein. Here, on this special piece of land, the unique combination of bush, river and beach come together to offer you an unforgettable ride.

Experienced guides escort riders twice daily along the 13km circular route. The trail takes about two hours to complete, leading through beautiful fynbos coastal vegetation, towards the Gamtoos river with breathtaking views from the dunes and finally returning along a 6 km stretch of deserted beach. Here on this isolated beach, riders can canter their mounts in the shallows or have an exhilarating gallop on the sand.

The trail provides magnificent views of the area and affords ample opportunity to spot a variety of bird species, tortoises, bushbuck, plant and marine life. Imagine whale watching from horseback!

You may see seals basking in the sun and the rare African Black Oystercatcher is always to be found near the Gamtoos river mouth.

The guides escort every group and assist riders in selecting horses just right for their respective capabilities. This outride is ideal for intermediate and advanced riders, though in quiet times, we also accommodate first timers and beginners. Experienced riders can choose not to go with a guide and have the freedom to explore the valley at their own pace.

Ons praat Afrikaans sowel as Engels.

What some of our riders have said:

“An adrenaline filled day! Brilliant! Saw a few dolphins, and galloped with them! Loved it…”

"Galloping with sea salt & spray in my mouth, seeing a rainbow in the spray of the horse in front of me! Ten out of ten!"
