Triple B Ranch


Triple B Ranch
Waterberg South Africa
Special Offer Available!!


One of the oldest farmsteads in the Waterberg mountains of South Africa, Triple B Ranch was settled by the pioneering Baber family over 100 years ago!

The horse and cattle ranch continues to operate as a working farm, a property filled with the local wildlife and essential oil, offering 20,000 acres of horseback riding country to guests from far and wide. 

We run a herd of over 80 free roaming horses and can cater for all levels of riders from experienced to complete novice. This is the perfect holiday for those riders wishing to experience the pleasure of riding with African wildlife in the absence of dangerous game. Wildlife to be seen on the reserve include hippo, giraffe, zebra, antelope, leopard, caracal, brown hyena, jackal, crocodile and aardvark. There are also over 300 bird species on the reserve.
This riding holiday is fully flexible and offers the opportunity for many other activities in addition to game viewing, in particular great outrides over excellent riding country and also polocrosse, cattle mustering, jumping, western games, and swimming with your horse. There are two outrides or riding activities a day. Morning rides last 3-4 hours (or less if requested) and afternoon rides are somewhat shorter. Jumping is also available on request. Rides are tailor-made to suit the needs of our guests and we try to be as flexible as possible. The distinguishing feature of this safari is its relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Horizon boasts an irreverent zest for life that is truly infectious and will leave you wanting more. We enjoy sharing this wonderful place and our lives with our guests, so come and be part of it.
Feeling saddle weary? At any point, you can opt to go on an non-riding adventure; you can visit the on-site bead craft workshop for some souvenir shopping or visit the shops in the nearby town of Vaalwater, or the ranch can book you on a nearby elephant or jeep safari at the neighbouring Big 5 reserve for the morning or afternoon. A wonderfully welcoming and varied horse riding destination for riders of all equestrian experience and abilities.
