Lesotho Expedition - Lesotho and South Africa

Experience Level

Lesotho Expedition

5 star rating   19 May 2018

Fit, well-behaved, sure footed working horses that were able to carry us up and down fabulous mountainous terrain. The riding was as described prior to departure, with some time spent on foot when necessary. There was plenty of time in the saddle and there was a good mix of pace as appropriate. The riding fully met my expectations. I loved that the horses were barefoot.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was as described prior to departure and was better than I expected overall. It was all ‘authentic’ within type, which I really enjoyed. I ate well, rode happily and slept comfortably.

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

I thought it was very thorough, timely, appropriate. I love the wee booklet in the leather wallet

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

I thought that was smooth, accurate, easy.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would rate it in within my top three (very difficult to choose an actual winner) and this is out of more than 25 options. I found the mountain scenery very energising. I thought the horses were fabulous (not so much, perhaps, the St Bernard’s horse, but it was difficult for that one to meet the bar set by Ginger of Khotso). The people were great and I felt well cared for. It felt like a proper journey but the catering was very well done. The horses were great....did I already mention that?
