About
Ride along perfect white beaches of the Walker Bay Conservancy and whale sanctuary which is arguably the best land-based area in the world to watch whales (whale watching capital of the world from June to December – whales and their calves often come within meters of the coastline). Admire these magnificent creatures and their “aquabatic” displays, splashing, crashing and blowing, breaching, lobtailing, spy-hopping and sailing close to shore.

What to expect
  • Starting from the Grootbos Nature Reserve, which has an award-winning lodge and is famous as a botanical hot-spot, the trail runs west through the coastal shrubland and traverses the vast magical, almost surreal, sand drifts (Grys Dune) of die Plaat. Ride along perfect white beaches of the Walker Bay Conservancy and whale sanctuary which is arguably the best land-based area in the world to watch whales (whale watching capital of the world from June to December – whales and their calves often come within meters of the coastline). Admire these magnificent creatures and their “aquabatic” displays, splashing, crashing and blowing, breaching, lobtailing, spy-hopping and sailing close to shore. Enjoy the sandy beaches and experience the thrill of beach canters. Just before De Kelders the coastline gets rougher with rocky beaches and limestone cliffs which flatten out onto sandy stretches of die Plaat. The coastal landscape will give way to mountain fynbos when we hit the slopes of the coastal hills to return to Grootbos.

Amazing!
Dec 2019
I'm a quiet experienced horserider myself. But I have had a severe accident at high speed a few years ago, and I'm scared at very high speed. The 2 guys who were with me on the tour could cross over the beach, the guide did really care about me and stayed a little behind with me so I could canter on a more steady speed. It made my experience wonderfull! I have never been horseriding on the beach and I loved it, thanks to my wonderfull guide! But experience is required!
