More info about Horseback Riding in South Africa:

South Africa is an outdoor adventure haven, with diverse landscapes and terrains and a privileged wilderness. Its coastline stretches 2,850 km (1,770 miles), lapped partially by the Indian Ocean and partially by the Atlantic. The coast lines the Central Plateau of the country, separated by the Great Escarpment, where the KwaZulu-Natal province is located. On the east end of the Escarpment lie the Drakensberg Mountains. To the south, and in the Coastal Plain are the Cape Fold Mountains. The Highveld is a fertile region in the central east of the Plateau, and the Lowveld, or lowlands, form the border with Botswana and Zimbabwe. The Bushveld is a dry savannah eco-region between the two, and the Karoo, to the west, is a semi-desert region.
