- Classic Valentines Flowers and Chocolates from Netflorist
- Horseback Beach Adventures
Now this is something different. HBA suggests an “exhilarating beach adventure” on the beautiful Reunion beach in the south of Durban. All rides have at least 1 experienced guide to show you the way and look after you to the best of their ability, and basic instruction is given on every ride. So on every ride, you will learn something new.
Watch the sun setting and the moon rising on the beach from horseback. Enjoy a magical adventure on our 12km horse trail bathed in the light of the moon. These specially romantic and magical rides take you along our regular beach trail, but leaving in the late afternoon when you are likely to see the magnificent changing colours of the sky as the sun is setting over the horizon, experience the magical sight of the moon rising over the sea, and to be able to ride through the bush with only the light of the moon showing you the way and learning to really trust your steed. Suitable for advanced or novice riders. Groups of 2-9 persons.
These rides are available as:
1-The “Snacks and Swim Beach Ride” 3-4hrs long at a cost of R600pp
2- The “Non-stop Beach Ride” 2-3hrs long at a cost of R500pp
3- The “Sundowner Beach Ride” which includes a short stop to enjoy the moment and enjoy a glass of bubbly. 2.5hrs long at a cost of R550pp
