More about Beach Ride - Gansbaai

Starting from the Grootbos Nature Reserve, which has an award-winning lodge and is famous as a botanical hot-spot, the trail runs west through the coastal shrubland and traverses the vast magical, almost surreal, sand drifts (Grys Dune) of die Plaat.

Ride along perfect white beaches of the Walker Bay Conservancy and whale sanctuary which is arguably the best land-based area in the world to watch whales (whale watching capital of the world from June to December – whales and their calves often come within meters of the coastline). Admire these magnificent creatures and their "aquatic" displays, splashing, crashing and blowing, breaching, lob tailing, spy-hopping and sailing close to shore.

Enjoy the sandy beaches and experience the thrill of beach canters. Just before De Kelders the coastline gets rougher with rocky beaches and limestone cliffs which flatten out onto sandy stretches of die Plaat. The coastal landscape will give way to mountain fynbos when we hit the slopes of the coastal hills to return to Grootbos.

We had an unbelievable experience galloping on the beach and riding through sand dunes. Was one of the highlights of my entire trip! I would highly recommend the 3 hour ride.
