I’ve always had a love for horses. I never really had the opportunity to have my own, or to ride often enough for that matter. Staying at the five-star Riboville Boutique Hotel & Restaurant had me feeling all equestrian right in the heart of Joburg.

I love the mystery of these romantic berg hide-aways, the inexplicable inner peace that comes with it and the deep, meaningful rest it forces us to initially endure and finally enjoy.
