African Explorer - Botswana and South Africa

Experience Level

African Explorer

5 star rating   20 September 2019

At both camps the staff kept making sure you were still happy with your horse.

The horses had good manners and were easy to ride. I felt totally confident that whatever I asked of either of the horses I rode they would deliver.

The African Explorer is an action packed holiday delivering everything promised and more. Although I know this may not be practical it could possibly have benifitted from being one or even two days longer.

The part of the holiday I was worried about was swimming with my horse. In fact it was one of the high spots.

Nothing can be guaranteed on a jeep drive but on both of ours the sky was the limit. What can I say white rhinos snoozing at the side of the jeep, a male lion showing off, baby cheetahs being taught to hunt, a lion kill, lions drinking from holes dug by elephants in a dry river bed plus much more.

I was excited to go back to Africa and was certainly not disappointed. I can't wait for the next time!
