Botswana - Macatoo

Riding Safari

Received on 14 August 2017

Posted by: Gordon who has been on 11 In The Saddle rides. "Brilliant" Exhilarating riding, especially across the water. Fast in the mornings and slower in the evenings ideal for cameras Plenty of game including elephant, buffalo and giraffe in the camp itself. The changes in terrain need you to be fit and have a good sense of balance in canter .Two very different horses for the week both clearly enjoying their job.

Posted by: Sarah who has been on 12 In The Saddle rides. "Wonderful combination of amazing game viewing and exciting riding." The riding is fantastic at Macatoo. The horses were excellent quality, very well cared for and all the ones I rode were well suited to me. I rode a grey Arab cross that was powerful and fast without being strong and he was a joy to ride. I also rode several other horses who were lovely as well. The riding is super fun with lots of splashy canters and twisting and turning through the bush. It was incredible to get so close to the animals who were amazingly relaxed with the horses. Getting so close to elephants is something I will never forget!

Riding Safari

Posted by: Sam who has been on 11 In The Saddle rides. "Wow. Just wow!" I loved all my horses. I rode 3 different ones. The care of the horses and the riders was absolutely supreme on this trip. Could fault nothing. The riding included quite long and fast canters at times, quite "tough" riding as we are not used to jiggling and squiggling in canter through undergrowth/uneven ground with logs/obstacles etc. Riding in the water was amazing. I have never experienced anything like this. Sometimes I was nearly swimming when I had a small horse. Long canters in quite deep water so the horse almost had to jump in and out. Wading through deep water, water in over my boots, water weed stuck in my shoes, wet pants! Like nothing else I have done before. Amazing. Got soaked each day from head to foot. Splashing and giggling, sometimes hard to stay on slippy/bouncy, so quite hard work to ride but soooo much fun. Tiring! Advice would be chaps and short rubber boots with no lining (my linings disintegrated completely). Boots don't dry overnight so you definitely need 2 pairs. Old ones you can trash would be best :-) I will treasure the memories of this trip forever. We saw so much game too!
