Wild Coast - South Africa

Wild Coast Adventure Trail

5 star rating   16 November 2019

Victoria who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Incredible beaches, great horses and a wonderful holiday | The riding was varied and at times quite fast paced. Given the size of the group (9 riders plus two guides) and bad weather at times, the guides did incredibly well to keep within everyone's limits while keeping things interesting for those of us who like to push ourselves a bit more.

The horses were lovely - forward going but manageable and reliable - and were obviously very well looked after.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was basic but this was expected - there are very few alternatives in the area. Similarly, the quality of the food was slightly varied but was always more than edible and was as expected.

On one occasion I had to share a room with another group member, which I would have strongly preferred not to. However, the possibility of room sharing was made clear in the itinerary so I knew that this might be necessary.
