African Explorer - Botswana and South Africa

African Explorer

5 star rating   14 June 2019

Fi who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Exceeded all expectations | I loved my Gazelle at Horizon, and Rodeo at Tuli.
The horse welfare seems to be a very high priority, and they did their best to match us with the horses and give us the option to change if we wanted (no one did!).
I did have a bit of a sore on my leg from the saddle at Horizon, but didn't notice it myself till I got in the shower that evening so just one of those things and they helped to adjust buckles the next day to sort it out.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

I loved my tent, especially at Horizon with the view over the hill, couldn't believe how lucky I was to be staying there.
The beds were comfy.
Plenty of hot water for showers at Tuli and acceptably warm at Horizon.
The food was amazing at both places, maybe especially at Horizon and there were veggie options just for me every day.
