My first horse was too strong for me so I was given the wonderful Vicki (Victoria Cross) who was much bigger than my usual rides, but who was so smooth and responsive. I really loved her. Unfortunately she struck into herself on a long descent so I was given Nkune who was very different but equally enjoyable to ride. He looked after me when I was unable to ride fast and my only regret was that I did not have a chance to enjoy his lovely canter for longer.
The trails were great with plenty of cantering on the sensible bits - will never forget when the very pregnant zebra joined our group! The river crossing was interesting and showed the trust that the horses had in the staff.

Lovely range of accommodation from tents to cabins without walls where the hyenas called in the night. The food was lovely with added warthogs at base camp.
