Horseback Safaris now in Badplaas

Send to Kindle


Dawsons Game and Trout Lodge in Badplaas, Mpumalanga now offers their guests the chance to experience unique morning and afternoon horseback safaris on the 2,000 ha private estate, all under the expert guidance of highly qualified game rangers.

These 2-hour outrides take place in some of the region’s most scenic grasslands and bushveld, teeming up with herds of plains game, including dazzling zebra. Dawsons can accommodate between 8 and 10 guests on an outride at one time, and it is recommended that guests have horse riding experience due to the level of the activity.

Additional Activities at Dawsons:

Guests have full access to a variety of activities while staying at Dawsons Game and Trout Lodge. These include guided game drives and walks, trout and bass fishing, bird viewing, horse riding, scenic hikes or just simply relax around our pool area and soak up the magnificent sunshine and views.

Bird Watching:
The area hosts a unique combination of bird species such as Knysna Lourie, Malachite Hum bird, Olive Bush-Shrike, Trumpeter Hornbill and many more occasional visitors and seasonal migrants. Spending a few hours in our corner of paradise accompanied by a professional field guide will offer constant excitement and photographic opportunities.

Game viewing:
Early morning and late afternoon guided game drives will thrill you across wide-open grasslands and through dense bushveld. Experience the unique behavioural patterns of our myriad of wild indigenous game species whilst enjoying your favourite sundowner.
