More about Doornkloof Trail

Guided outride in the foothills of the Swartberg Mountain. This is a slightly longer version of the Kudu Trail ride in unspoilt Klein Karoo nature. It’s also a great outing for families or romantics. It is suitable for Intermediate, Accomplished and Expert riders. The duration of the ride is a bit long for Beginner riders. The 3 hours route is inclusive of brief stop to stretch legs and eat a saddle bag snack.



3 hours


All year round, but subject to availability.


Stompdrift Dam Road, De Rust in the Oudtshoorn District. Klein Karoo region.


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.

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

Guests or Spectators:

Non riders are welcome to spend time on the farm while friends or family are out on a ride. Take a walk or relax under the vine veranda. The farm shop has a small selection of refreshments available. Alternatively you can take the short drive to De Rust to browse shops or visit one of the numerous café’s. Meiringpoort Waterfall is also a short drive away.
