We are aware that volunteers on your working riding gap vacation have different requirements and expectations so we are offering different types of all-inclusive packages at different daily rates.
We try to accommodate you with your overseas travel plans and have no fixed dates. You tell us which option suits you how long you wish to stay and which dates. Send us an email. Tell us about yourself, your expectations, and future plans. Nothing-formal just chat. We can then advise you when we have available space.
This is an adventure travel volunteer holiday, not employment. Without the paying volunteers we could not finance the development project or be in the position to take in unwanted and injured horses.
Volunteering is an affordable, inexpensive holiday option; on each ride you are riding a horse that we could have used to earn revenue. We have done alterations to the house to accommodate you plus there is your living expenses to consider.
Without your extra pair of hands we would not have successfully rehabilitated so many abused and neglected horses. It is time consuming to get their trust and work through issues and they require constant reassuring and handling. Your effort and loyalty is highly appreciated.
Come join us ...
...and you will see rolling hills, rich Savannah grasslands and thick-forested valleys with multitudes of rivulets cascading down to rivers that eventually spill out onto quiet sandy beaches, fantastic high rise cliffs and spectacular rock formations that make the Wild Coast in South Africa one of the most beautiful places in the world. An incredible combination of cross-country horse riding and the exploration of our beautiful coastline.
