Adventure activities for all ages

Saddle Creek Adventures is nestled at the foothills of Magnificent Magaliesburg Mountains. We offer a variety of adventure activities for kiddies from 5 and upwards, as well as teens and adults. For the less adventurous, we have a beautiful spa.

Horse riding trails with trained guides

Nestled in the Hekpoort Valley in the foothills of the magnificent Magaliesburg Mountains. We offer horseback riding with a difference, riding western style on “well trained, obedient, calm and friendly” trail horses, with various rides into the bushveld and mountain foothills. All the rides are accompanied by trained trail guides and a trained staff member.

We have horses suitable for everyone. If you are a total beginner or an experienced rider. Western-style riding is becoming more popular and Saddle Creek Adventures is a safe place where you can learn to ride like a real cowboy and have loads of fun.

Relaxed riding for beginners

For the beginner, the emphasis is on a safe, relaxed and enjoyable ride on horses that will not “run away” with you. The experienced rider can choose a more “spirited horse” for a lively, exhilarating ride.

We are aware of some client's past bad experiences with horses that are difficult to control and for that reason we are careful to “match” rider and horse, taking into account their past riding experience.

Before leaving all the inexperienced riders will have the basic horse commands explained to them. Trained trail guides and trained staff members will be close to them throughout the ride.

Other fun activities on offer:


Perhaps you see yourself as the hero in Hunger Games, whichever thought appeals to you, remember that a bow and arrows are involved.

Participants must be 10 years and older.
