Wild Coast - South Africa

Wild Coast Adventure Trail

5 star rating   18 May 2019

Sarah J (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Outstanding - an absolute bucket-list holiday | Spectacular views, amazing beach rides and strong, healthy happy horses. Very professional guides - reassuring, relaxed and friendly. The terrain can be a little daunting at times if you're used to mainly flat/straightforward ground, but the horses are sure footed and steady in temperament, so you can have a lot of confidence in them. Loved it!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The Wild Coast isn't developed as a tourism destination which is a massive part of its appeal and charm. It also means accommodation options tend to be slightly less salubrious. They are perfectly nice, comfortable rooms, often with lovely views over the sea, it's just that they are a bit dated. For me that was part of the charm, but worth being aware of this. The food is fantastic - I am vegetarian and I was very well catered for throughout

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

Worth flagging that there's no wifi in the hotels we stay at for 3 nights (Kob Inn and Mazeppa Bay Hotel)and there's rarely in-room wifi. If I'd realised this I would have bought a data card at the airport.

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

No, all good.
