Good to be with an experienced group. Plenty of fast-paced gallops, In and out of water. Not challenging riding, except if something happens with the game. Horses will all stick together, so no independent riding.

Botswana is wild. We were alone out in the wilderness. When you fly in you realize how far apart the camps are in the Okavanga Delta and you will never see another person beyond those in the camp.

On horseback we saw many elephants, wild dogs, hippos, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, antelopes... We almost saw a leopard but he ran away faster than we could turn and look when the guide shouted. They prefer not to take you to the big cats on horseback, but by jeep I had encounters with two prides and two solo mothers with babes. I also got a good look at an 8 month old male leopard up in a tree.

I stayed for an entire week at Macatoo and was glad I chose to do that, rather than go from camp to camp. I mostly rode - the 1.5 relaxed rides in the evening and 3.5-4 hour energetic rides in the morning. It was nice to occasionally rest in the jeep and it's also better for taking pictures.

We really enjoyed the experience. The staff did their best to match us with the right horses, and we all had several favorite horses. Definitely, the trip exceeded our expectations.
