Day by day

Days 1 and 2. We get in tune with the horses, among rocks and rivers.

We meet at the International Airport of Cape Town and head North. We spend the night at Springbok and the next day, after crossing the border, we reach Holoog. We have lunch with the crew and get acquainted with our partners in adventure, the horses. In the afternoon, we go on a cavalcade to get used to the surroundings of the river Gapp, with its fascinating rocks and rich vegetation. Foods and drinks are included in our journey.

Days 3 to 5. Loneliness and imminent danger among the gorges.

We follow the Gaap river and cross over small gorges. For some reason, we have always been fascinated by the gorges in all parts of the world. The loneliness, the imminent danger, the uncertainty of not knowing what’s on the other side, attract us. In this case, it is a very diverse area, both in plants and animals: we can find from rhinos to giraffes, which increases our level of uncertainty. There are also open plains, where we can speed up and give free rein to the adrenaline of velocity, gallop into the immensity and feel in tune with the desert. We camp at the Roadhouse Canyon, a curious live museum of abandoned cars.

Days 6 to 10. To cavalcade in the diversity requires a versatile rider.

The land varies: it ranges from rocky hills to dried riverbeds, going through open plains. We are taken to the Fish River Canyon, from where we can appreciate the majestic landscape. After lunch, we keep on going, galloping. Due to the rains that batter the land both in winter and summer, we can find a great variety of species. We ride our horses until the Ai Ais thermal springs, where we can relax in warm waters. We spend our last night at the shores of the Orange river.

Day 11. At dawn we say goodbye.

We have breakfast early in the morning, when the light is appearing between the strenuous lands, and then, after saying goodbye to our loyal equine partners, we are taken to the International Airport of Cape Town.
