More about Spekboom Trail

Join us for this guided outride which includes a picnic served at one of our picnic beautiful spots. Our most popular short route on jeep tracks, farm roads and game tracks through the veld for riders of all levels of skill, even total beginners. A beautiful 2 hour ride in unspoilt Klein Karoo nature. It’s a great outing for families. The picnic is prepared in our farm kitchen of mostly home grown products.

Doornkraal Farm, Stompdrift Dam Road, De Rust near De Rust in the Klein Karoo


This service is weather depending. Humans are waterproof, just like horses. We will continue with your ride in wet weather conditions, although we rarely have to reschedule due to rain. The Klein Karoo is known for its very dry climate, however, we do not operate in extreme wet weather conditions and rides will be rescheduled if we decide that its impossible to attempt the ride. If we are blessed with wet weather, we can serve the picnic at our starting point, in a sheltered spot.. In the case of high temperatures, we take along water in the saddle bags and if you keep moving, it is bearable mostly because we have a low humidity.

What to Wear:

Comfortable clothing: Long pants, ski pants or riding breeches and closed shoes. Sneakers are not ideal, but acceptable. Avoid clothing which can be damaged by shrubs and branches (e.g. down jackets, microfibre). We provide riding hats. If there are rain predicted, bring a light rain jacket. We can tidy it away in a saddle bag if you are unsure of the weather on the ride.

Things to bring:

Remember to bring your sunscreen and sunglasses. In summer, we recommend long sleeved, light shirts with a collar for protection against the sun. Feel free to bring your own water bottle to take along on the ride, otherwise we provide bottled tap water or you can buy drinks at our Farm Shop. Bring a change of clothing if we expect wet weather.

Guests or Spectators:

Non riders are welcome to spend time on the farm while friends or family are out on a ride, and they can join them for the picnic. Take a walk or relax under the vine veranda. Alternatively you can take the short drive to De Rust to browse shops or visit one of the numerous café’s. Meiringspoort Waterfall is also a short drive away.

Great experience with our guide. Beautiful nature and horse riding suited to our level of expertise. Would recommend it to others. The picnic at the end was also tasty and special.
