What makes Wild Horses Mountain Lodge special is its location within the Sterkfontein nature reserve adjacent to the Sterkfontein dam. There are very few places on earth with such a special setting. The views are breathtaking and there are many ways in which to enjoy what nature has to offer when visiting this lodge. We went kayaking during our visit and enjoyed every minute.
I went on an outride with John and this was the highlight of my stay. One could not ask for a better backdrop than the Drakensberg mountains when riding. The horses are very affectionate and you can spend as much time with them as you wish.
On our last day we went for a boat ride. Service at the lodge is friendly and the boat ride was scheduled at a time that suited us. The boat ride was very serene and we recommend that you try and fit this into your itinerary.
Dinner was superb and the chef went out of his way to accommodate our requests. Lunch and breakfast was also very enjoyable.
I am giving the experience a five star rating.
If you have certain expectations with regards to small luxuries in your room I would inform the lodge in good time. I am sure they will do their best to accommodate your requests in order for the room to meet your five star expectations.
