Camp Davidson, South Africa
Horizon Horseback has been operating in South Africa for 20 years. Set up in the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, the company went on to develop a series of riding safaris that combined polo, jumping and cattle mustering for families, novices and experts alike. Camp Davidson is its newest base. Set in a private game reserve in the Matlapeng Valley, it offers luxury canvas tents and four-legged safaris to spot hippos, giraffe and leopards. Rather than keeping horses in paddocks or stables, it uses a herd of 85 free-roaming horses, with morning rides each day, followed by a bush brunch and time to recuperate at camp in the afternoon.
