This has to have been the best riding holiday I have ever been on.
The whole team at Makatoo, look after you from the moment you arrive to the time you leave. The camp and stables are exceptionally well run. There's a great team, from the people who bring you coffee in the morning, sort out any laundry and pop hot water bottles in your bed if it's cold at night, to the amazing catering team whose hard work magics up three meals a day in stunning settings and cook great cakes and snacks as well. And it doesn't stop there, the grooms look after the horses so well and see you off and back from every ride. The guides are highly knowledgeable and great fun to be with, they share their love of the horses, camp and country.
Makatoo isn't just about plenty of amazing riding, there's game drives, or walks if you are so inclined, as well as time to socialise and time to just soak it all in.
The people, horses and location make this one of the worlds best "Happy Places". You really won't want to leave, the only consolation is knowing you can go again!
Thank you all.
