Thaba Manzi Ranch is a 2000 acre Guest Ranch in the heart of the Magaliesberg just 65 minutes from Johannesburg. Check in at the stable yard office where riders are paired with their mounts.
ONE HOUR TRAIL
Aimed at those with little or no experience, we ride to the foot of the mountains where we visit the Boer War grave site and Monument. Riding on, we pass the second largest waterhole on the ranch and we then make our way back to the homestead across the plains past hartebeest, zebras, giraffe, gemsbuck, impala, eland, and ostrich.
ONE AND A HALF HOUR TRAIL
After taking the same route as the one hour trail we continue higher into the mountains stopping along the way at spectacular viewing points. We pass through bushveld trails where we may be fortunate to encounter the giraffe, nyala, or impala before returning to the homestead via the plains, taking time to say howdy to our Nguni cattle.
TWO HOUR TRAIL
This trail is for experienced riders only and allows us to truly explore the bushveld, the plains and high into the mountain slopes. There are opportunities for exhilarating canters and leisurely trots as well as steeper ascents and descents. Depending on the mood of the group, this trail also stops off at more viewpoints and lingers longer when coming upon game.
Call or enquire at reception.
