Nile Explorer - Uganda

Nile Explorer

5 star rating   9 September 2018

Pip (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Nile Explorer and Gorilla Tracking | Over and above expectations. The horses were so well schooled, forward going, but easily stopped. Very comfortable and did lovely collected canters. Amazing countryside and long gallops through the sugar plantations that we are not used to in the UK.

Brilliant! A fabulous holiday and Nile Horseback Safaris were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was perfectly planned and thought out against all eventualities. Very professional as well as being very sociable.

Gorilla tracking was amazing and ticked my 30 year wish list. Enjoyed the guided tour of the Buhoma village - very interesting and enlightening. Everyone should be encouraged to go on it.
