Verne who has been on 27 In The Saddle rides. Hi Olwen
Just completed the feedback
Happy to discuss
It was fantastic too manyz’ pinch yourselfz’ moments!
Best wishes
Like being in a wonderful dream | This was a wonderful game viewing experience
Felt safe at all times, guides read the animals’ intentions very well and instructed the group clearly so that no incidents occurred
Pace tended to be leisurely but this allowed everyone to savour the privilege of being around animals in their natural habitat
Faster paces were on suitable terrain and all the horses were very well behaved
After an afternoon siesta the afternoon rides were laid back

Crossing the Mara river (twice) was a great experience

We had a couple of night game drives and a daytime one on the horse’s well deserved day off. We got very close to lions and elephants on the day time drive.

Casey (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Absolutely amazing! | It was absolutely perfect for my riding ability and what we were looking for. I am an intermediate rider and was matched perfectly with the right horse for me (Flash) and found the pace to be very comfortable. If anything, it was a bit slow / too much walking which would be the feedback from my husband who is a more advanced rider. But overall it was an amazing experience, for both our first safari and riding holiday.
[In The Saddle - we are so pleased that you enjoyed your safari.]

Tim who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Masai Mara Ride - an amazing experience | The horses were all in tip-top condition and were responsive and well behaved, It was clear that Felicia had taken great care to match the horses to the riders. All of us really enjoyed our horses. We specifically booked this holiday for the wildlife experience and as such fully expected a leisurely pace getting very close to a wide variety of game, yet feeling totally safe in the experienced and capable hands of Gordie
I have to say we had heard great things of this trip from a few years ago and, with that in mind and the Covid wait we had built up very high expectations of the holiday. Our expectations were very much exceeded. Where this safari really excelled was the personal hands-on involvement of Gordie and Felicia in every aspect of the holiday
The whole camp team were simply wonderful, it was great to see that everyone was so happy, friendly and obliging. The service was first class, the tents and beds excellent and the food was superb
We can can certainly recommend anyone seeking a true wildlife experience to book this trip.

[Abbie from In The Saddle replies - Thank you so much for providing feedback on your long-awaited trip to Kenya. We are thrilled that you had such a memorable and special experience. It was a pleasure to arrange your safari].
