Book your cattle drive today
Our Cattle Drive gives you the opportunity to experience an element of the Cowboy life without leaving South Africa. Arrival at the ranch is 7.45 for a cup of tea or coffee (by the fire in winter) and delicious home-made rusks. Riders are then introduced to the cowboys and allocated horses followed by a brief demonstration of Western riding principles.
The concept is based on a traditional American Cattle Drive where cattle were moved over vast areas to new grazing by cowboys on horseback. Ours is done the same way herding the cattle through our ranch to new grazing (about 2.5hrs).
At this point the guests participate in our City Slicker Breakfast. A traditional cowboy meal cooked the cowboy way on a real camp fire in the bush. The meal is served with coffee tea and juice. After breakfast everyone is back in the saddle for the ride home.
The whole event usually takes about 4 hours. Believe it or not it is suitable for all riders from absolute beginners to the most experienced.
