Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to ride all sorts of different animals ranging from camels to ostriches. When it comes to comfort nothing beats riding a horse. While in Chintsa, South Africa we had the chance to ride along the beach. The following is our adventure.

Right now we are staying in Chintsa at Buccaneers Lodge and we’ve got some fantastic views of the beach happening. So we’re just going to be relaxing here for the next few days enjoying some downtime, some beach time and right now we’re going to give you a little tour. Today we have a horse riding adventure coming up so we’re just going to meet our horses and get geared up and get ready to go. Apparently, we’re going down to the beach so it should be fun. Alright, so this is my horse over here. It’s name is Sisci. You’re very sweet. It seems gentle enough. So that has been a really fun ride so far. We’re down at the beach right now and we’ve been trotting with the horses. My knees are feeling a little bit wobbly now that I’m off the horse but it has been a really good time. And also what’s funny is getting to see the horses personalities. I have one that loves to eat. And it just keeps stopping to munch on grass. And Sam has a horse that is very itchy and likes to scratch his butt against branches and trunks and anything it finds. And my horse doesn’t get along with three other ones. Yeah. This is part of our Travel in South Africa series. We’re making a series of videos showcasing South African culture, South African arts, South African foods, South African religion, South African cuisine and South African people. All photos and video taken by Samuel Jeffery (Nomadic Samuel) and Audrey Bergner (That Backpacker). Music in this video courtesy of Audio Network
