Macatoo - Botswana

Riding Safari

5 star rating   22 June 2019

Mad about Macatoo who has been on 9 In The Saddle rides. Fabulous as ever | As I am recovering from a broken shoulder I requested bomb proof horses that I could trust wouldn't shy at nothing and that is what i got. Still had some fabulous canters and a few gallops so was very happy.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Food as good as always and definitely plenty of it. I have been going to Macatoo since 2005 and would say the breakfasts have improved with far more choice which is great. Tents now have fans and solar power which means that the lighting is better and you can charge phones etc. in your tent. Showers are even better than ever with the solar heated water rather than the gas geyser.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

This was my 6th visit to Macatoo and everything was as good as ever. I was sorry to see the electric fence they have put up to keep the elephants at bay as I love hearing them snore outside my tent but do understand why they have decided to put it up. It will be interesting to see how long it stays up if the elephants decide they must get to their favourite fruit trees! The solar power is a great improvement and all the staff are as friendly and helpful as ever and make you feel like one of the family.
