Unicorn Trails invites you to experience the ultimate thrill in horseback safaris whilst supporting a valuable conservation project near the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
This is the only opportunity available to ride in the presence of elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard in the whole of Southern Africa. Not only are the Big Five here, but it is home to a unique conservation project involving six other game ranches in the region. With a full time game manager and complete research team their commitment to this ground breaking work includes the introduction into the reserves of the worlds most endangered mammal the Cape wild dog. By holidaying with Unicorn Trails you will support this valuable conservation effort.
Only a 4hr drive from Johannesburg or short internal flight to Hoedspruit and you arrive at this exclusive lodge on the banks of the Makhoutse River. Private tree platform tents with views over the river, ensuite, open air bathrooms with flush toilet and hot/cold showers provide accommodation that is both luxurious and unusual. With comfort assured at base camp and the outlying lodges, it is time to explore the far reaches of this 20,000 acre private conservancy.
Your host Philip, a professional, English speaking guide and lifelong horseman will take you galloping along fig lined sandy riverbeds, cantering across plains into the depths of the African bush. Time to challenge personal boundaries, when the exhilaration of seeing predators such as cheetah and elephant at close range, from horseback, cause the adrenalin to rush.
Set 8 day safaris, elephant tracking horseback adventures and tailor made itineraries are available all year round. With a maximum of four guests at any one time you are guaranteed a unique and unforgettable journey into the soul of Africa. Or book your own party of four, bringing friends, family or work colleagues together for the trip of a lifetime!
