Wait A Little - South Africa

Big Five Safari

5 star rating   20 July 2019

Bertie's owner (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Fantastic | The horses were all lovely, really well cared for, and because were riding twice daily, we had different horses over the course of the week, so that they were fresh and not over worked. Riding in the Bush was a new experience for me, but the horses ‘knew the job’ perfectly. The tack was fabulous, in every way,; clean, well fitted and the saddles were comfortable.

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

It was great, I followed your tips and had everything I needed for comfortable riding.

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

A bit more advance ( e.g 10-14 days) notice when the final payment was due would have been helpful, as I had to draw it from a building society account, and it takes some time to clear.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

This was the best holiday I have ever experienced. Riding a horse on Safari is a truly life enhancing experience, every minute of the week was fantastic, and I wanted it to never stop! The team at Wait a little are brilliant, they looked after us so well.
