http://www.kaapsehoopinfo.co.za/horses.html
Kaapsehoop is known for its wild horses.
There are an estimated 150 - 180 wild horses.
These horses are remnants of the gold mining days, the Boer wars and the early cattle farmers. Early documentation of these horses are found in old mining journals of the late 1800's.
The herds vary between 8 - 12 with the mature stallion and matriarch mare and they roam on a 17 000 ha property.
These horses are of huge interest to equine enthusiasts and offer sought after photographic opportunities of wild horses in their natural environment. It is a unique experience when encountering herds like these on horseback.

Drakensbergen en Panorama Route

The Panorama Route tour is home to breathtaking views and some of the most
spectacular landscapes. The route in Mpumalanga is well known for its cultural
heritage as well as its dramatic scenery.
The Panorama route is home to the Blyde River canyon which is the third
largest canyon in the world and the largest green canyon in the world.
It is situated at the Northern end of the Drakensberg and offers phenomenal views
over the Klein Drakensberg. The Blyde River canyon is situated in a National
Reserve and as such is unspoilt by development and is home to an abundance of wildlife.
A visit to Gods Window is highly recommended, this is a viewing spot
on the escarpment of the Drakensberg
with panoramic views across the Lowveld and more breathtaking views of the lush forested ravine 900m below.
Another lovely stop is Burkes Potholes.
This is one of the famous viewpoints
and a great place for you to stretch your legs. Over centuries the river water has eroded the rocks to form perfectly smooth potholes and strange sculptures.
