Macatoo - Botswana

Experience Level

Riding Safari

5 star rating   25 November 2017

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.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

One conflict of information: gratuity was said to be not expected in the literature, but on site it was very much expected.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

A nice relaxing lodge-based experience. Having no defined trails make this holiday flexible and every day is different, so even after riding out from the same spot for 7 days, it doesn't feel repetitive.
