5 star rating   30 July 2017

The first day I was not 100%sure about my horse. However you have to approach the holiday not as a hack out at home but as an entire week. As the holiday progressed I realised that I had a very nimble, clever little horse who gave me a fabulous ride and am so pleased I didn't change him!
As we cantered along through the bush it was impossible to keep the grins from our faces. Really exhilarating!!

Unbelievable how Grace and Virginia produced food of such superb quality and flavour from such limited facilities!! Always plentiful and served with a smile.
Particularly loved Kgotla camp but all were different with individual qualities and amazingly good facilities.

This for me was a holiday of a lifetime. However, having been so excited I then worried that it would not live up to expectations. How wrong I was!! It was everything I could have hoped for and so much more. The wildlife, the flora and fauna, the sunsets and the starry night skies, our wonderfully knowledgeable guide David from who we learnt so much and his equally endearing back rider Tapelo, the amazing food. I could go on and on. The whole team worked so hard to make our trip a truly memorable one and I was particularly impressed at the superb care of the horses.
One problem- having had a taste I now want to go again!!!! You cannot explain Africa to anyone who has never been.
