We went to the Luwawa location and enjoyed walking, hiking and horse riding. Beautiful nature, lovely cabin, and very happy and healthy horses. We had a great time and could not recommend this place more. Maggie and Brian made us feel very welcome and looked after.

I wish we had found this place earlier.

I can't recommend Maggie and her team at Plateau Stables enough. From the warm welcome, the cosy, comfortable and well equipped forest cabin to the gorgeous horses and beautiful location, it ticks all the boxes.
A great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting, especially on horse back.
We will definitely go back!

We had a wonderful time at Luwawa with Maggie and Brian. It is a truly unique experience! Not only can you go on a fantastic horse ride and see the beautiful Vipya Plantations and surrounding area, you can also properly bond with the horses if you stay in their accommodation because the stables are right there. You can watch the daily activities and care that goes into the horses and you might even get night time visitors 😊🐴!!!

Never experienced such a warm welcoming before. Maggie was awesome and took care of us as first-time horse riders. She made sure we felt comfortable and was very chatty all through our ride at Luwawa Forest. She knows her horses so well and it was fascinating hearing background stories about the horses we were riding.

The accommodation was clean and cosy. The sunset from the deck was breathtaking! We only stayed for a night but we can’t wait to visit again!

We had a lovely time at plateau stables Luwawa. The horses are so calm and well mannered and can live their life in such a natural way. There are no fences and Maggie makes her own horsefood. The small cottage is lovely, built with a lot of love for details and warmth. I absolutely loved the two rides I booked. The scenery is beyond beautiful and oh my the horses, I am just so in love. There really is a horse for every riding level and character. Extremely friendly and helpful grooms. Maggie is a very warm, welcoming and incredibly passionate rider herself, it's just fun to explore the forest with her. I will definitely come back soon! 💜

Amazing horse riding experience in beautiful scenery! Maggie is incredibly welcoming, passionate about horses and accomodating to adjust to every rider's individual need/level. The horses are very well looked after. We love it there and I am sure you would too!

Maggie and Brian are very nice people and created a place for me to stay. I have never met such hospitable people. The location is amazingly beautiful and fantastic to watch the horses roam freely on the property. The rides were breathtakingly beautiful and great views. It is well worth it and a great experience to ride a horse in luwawa forest.

Thank you Maggie and Brian for the good time with you.

Fantastic horse riding at Vipya plateau. We stayed at Luwawa Forest Lodge, which is only 10 minutes walk away.
