Wild Horses of Kaapsehoop in Mpumalanga RSA.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Kaapsehoop is a town in the Mpumalanga province (formerly Eastern Transvaal) of South Africa. It is situated 1486 m (4878 ft.) above sea level on the Highveld escarpment, about 25 km from Nelspruit, the capital of Mpumalanga. The name of the town is no doubt derived from the fact that when gold was discovered in the town, the find created hope for the early inhabitants of the geographically nearby De Kaap Valley โ€“ The Cape Valley โ€“ of attaining great wealth.

Kaapsehoop is set out between large natural clearings in the rock fields near the top of the escarpment overlooking the lush De Kaap Valley situated some 800 metres below, with distant views towards Barberton and Nelspruit.

The horses are wild and live in and around the Kaapsehoop village.

  1. Not THAT wild if they stood for the photos? Read about your awesome town in books by TV Bulpin. Wish I had time to visit it. Great photos of beautiful animals.

  2. These horses are all so beautiful. You managed to capture a really nice selection of colors from within the herd. My only complaint with the video, is that there were no English sub-captions, so I was clueless as to what the narrators were saying, but the horses sure were a delight to watch. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I was there so often Spook, one of my favourite places, the owners of the pancake den used to visit with Linda at hers in Lydenburg so we sort of had a great relationship with them. My one grandson got married there as well last year its a great place I agree.

  3. They’re beautiful! I love horses ๐Ÿ™‚ They remind me of our Brumbies. Are they subjected to the same culling and arguments about whether they should be allowed to continue to live or not?
