The potential of Kande was recognised by proprieter John Hiam in 2001 and Kande Horse was erected on the shores of Lake Malawi using local materials. He has spent the following years creating the buildings that make up Kande Horse and due to the success of the horse riding business has recently opened accommodation in the form of The Stables Guest House, which is nestled in amongst the forest, allowing the trees to provide guests with respite from the African sun. The surrounding bush also offers fantastic walking paths if you are feeling active. Guests are invited to enjoy beautifully home-cooked meals each day, with much of the produce sourced from the private vegetable garden. There is a variety of different foods and warmly hospitable, staff will tailor-make meals to suit guests' taste. Meal times are flexible to suit activities planned for the day.
The Stables guest house works alongside Kande Horse to offer guests a variety of equine activities. Situated in 60 acres of Brachystegia forest and open grazing, Kande Horse provides lessons, rides, swimming with the horses in the lake and Polocrosse tuition. Kande Horse has 28 horses of a variety sizes, ages, capabilities and breeds, including ex-racing Thoroughbreds to Basotho Ponies. All levels of riders are welcomed at Kande Horse and with such a broad range of horses every rider can be matched to the most suitable horse although we regret there is a rider weight limit of 95kg. Tack includes both English saddles and Australian stock saddles. In addition to broad access to riding in the local area of forest, floodplains and beaches, Kande Horse also has a sand arena and Polocrosse field. The closest beach is situated 4km away at Kande Beach Campsite. It is a short drive away, a nice walk away or a fantastic ride away.
