On arrival at East London airport, you will be transferred to Kei Mouth, the beach base of Wild Coast Horse Trails.

Lunch is a picnic and a chance to soak up the sun and sea before heading off the hotel in the afternoon.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3: Morning Ride & Free Afternoon
The departure time this morning is dictated by the tide. It a fantastic 3-hour ride either up the beach and back across country through rolling hills and traditional villages or the other way around, depending on the tides. Either way you get to ride on the hard, wet beach at low tide – the gallops are exhilarating. We are back at the hotel in time for lunch. Alternatively, if the weather and tides are favorable we may take a picnic. This afternoon has a choice of activities. You can take a boat trip up the river and explore the stunning mangrove estuary of the Nxaxo river by canoe or boat, hike or just kick back and relax in the Jacuzzi (extra fee) – this afternoon is flexible as there are so many options to experience!!!
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4: Ride back to Kei Mouth
Today we start our journey back to Kei Mouth. We ride inland this morning, crossing the river high up and away from the tides influence. The slay paths and track offer great canters as we wind our way back to the beach. Then we head towards Kei Mouth and the pontoon crossing before dropping the horses off at the paddocks before we have a late lunch at one of the local restaurants.
Then it is a time to wander back to the guest house, and your final night on the Wild Coast.
