Amapondo Backpackers | Port St Johns

Horse Riding

Our horses are totally chilled, so don’t worry if you’ve never ridden a horse before.  This is your time to start.

Jump on one of our community-owned horses and enjoy this guided trip through Mthumbane Village.  This fascinating cultural ride takes you up the side of a mountain into the village.  The views from here are spectacular and offer wide panoramas of the Wild Coast.

If you’re lucky you might even spot whales and dolphins from up here.

The local children squeal with delight as we ride through their village.  And if school is open, we usually stop at the pre-school where volunteers from Amapondo are often teaching the kids or fixing up the school.  Get involved!

Ride back to Amapondo to enjoy a cold beer after an exciting 3 hour ride.
