Absolutely amazing experience and well worth it. We did the 1hour 45 minute sunset trail. And as other attendees bailed we basically got to have a private ride. The horses are very well behaved so we had a really pleasant time especially considering we are not experienced horse riders. We got to a giraffe really up close, touched a Zebra and got to see other game as well impala, a reindeer, wildebeest and for the first time I saw a golden Wildebeest.

Definitely worth paying this place a visit.... I know I will definitely be returning

I have no words, honestly our ride was so amazing. We saw animals from a distance you would never expect to be. The guide was so friendly and patiently explained every animal, down to its coat color! He also kept the horses in line, and knew the horses personality to a T!

Our picnic was full of lovely goodies, including some fancy cheese we've never tried before.

The owners were also very friendly and seem like hard-working people.

Would go again in a heartbeat!

Very average trail

Had an absolutely fun and memorable experience. The 2 hour sunset safari is worth it especially if you go with a bunch of friends. On the down side our time slot ran late and we weren't assured of what's happening as well as the saddles are quite uncomfortable so I highly suggest taking a small little pillow or thick jersey to sit on if possible. Other than that, it is highly worth it, the guides are engaging and friendly and you get really close up to the wild animals. Take a bottle of water with on the ride, you can get quite parched.

Wonderful experience, amazing to see the wildlife so close up, a wide variety of animals. The horses are well trained, and very well looked after. Picnic food was 5star at a very beautiful location in the bush. A Must do for every couple to spend so romantic time together!

Riding horseback through a safari and being *that* close to wild animals was an incredible experience!

Lovely place for horse riding while you also get to see other animals like giraffe's, bucks etc. The guys are super friendly and are really good at what they do. Great experience

What an amazing experiencing. We had so much fun. We did the combo (quad biking, horse ride and picnic) and I am super impressed. The staff is so friendly and they are willing to help where they can. The horses are well taken care of and so easy to control during the ride. I would highly recommend Harties Horse and Trail Safaris to anyone. You will not regret.

Thank you so much for making our day so fun and special. We will definitely come back 🐴🐎🦓🐾

What an amazing adventure! from the moment you arrive, you are greeted with friendly faces and beautiful horses. Our guide was informative and friendly. They go above and beyond expectations to make your experience wonderful. Prices are great and worth every penny. The sweetheart surprise was exactly that; a surprise. I arranged the outing, yet I was shocked at the effort and quality of the picnic. Would 100% recommend it to anyone wanting a fun and memorable day.

It was quiet an adventure. Loved the horse. Wish they had kids activities 😕

I had the best experience here. The people were very welcoming and friendly. There is no need to be an experienced horse rider. The horses are well trained. We decided to take the Sunrise trail and it was magical ☺️. I'd advise for it, as it can get hot during the day.
It was amazing, really enjoyed it and the tour guide is with you every step of the way. You get to see other animals and they take you pictures with your phone or request for a photographer. The ride was for an hour and it is worth it.
