Horse riding in the Zuurberg mountains

Addo Elephant National Park offers horse riding in two locations within the Greater Addo park.  The first is down by the Main Rest Camp where the ride takes place either within the game viewing area or outside the fence if there are predators close by while the second is up on the Zuurberg Mountains.  The drive up the Zuurberg Pass is an experience on it's own with beautiful views and a visible change in vegetation as you get higher.  Once you arrive at the SANParks office you sign in and receive a safety briefing.  On the ride the horses follow the guide along a path over rolling hills with stunning vistas all around.  At one stage we got to a spot where you could see just about all the way to Port Elizabeth.  Even though you will see less game than down in the game viewing area we still spotted a number of antelope species, but the views make up for it.  Have I mentioned the beautiful views?
