365 Things to do in Bray

365 Things to do in Bray Bray is a tiny ‘frontier post’ town in the North West Province, in a blisteringly hot (and ice cold at night) acacia tree dotted savannah/semi-desert of the Eastern Kalahari, with only two dusty streets, a store, a pretty white-washed church (always a pretty church in South Africa), a fuel station, some RDP houses, a camping lodge and a couple of guest houses.


Bray Horse Bush Race:
The Bray Horse Race is ‘Bush Race’ through the dusty streets. There’s no track, and no professional jockeys, but the horses are thoroughbreds, they are fast, furious and spirited and the ‘amateur jockeys’, garbed in full racing gear, are often racing stable hands and grooms who are very experienced riders.
There are 10 races in all, and it is all very serious business from the yelling and emotions and the horses to the betting.
The race attracts entrants from all over the country and beyond, and generates hundreds of thousands of Rands in income.
Rather delightfully, the Bray Horse Race was reportedly started in the late 90’s as a bit of fun by the local Recreational Club because there was nothing to do in Bray.
