African Explorer - Botswana and South Africa

African Explorer

5 star rating   29 November 2019

Emily who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Absolutely Spectacular | Fantastic riding. We were fortunate enough to have a brave group and were treated to endless winding canters. Being able to spread out in Botswana and pop over fallen logs has spoiled us forever. Canters were long but steady and well balanced with walking in the heat.

The horses are wonderful, brave as can be, responsive and happy in their jobs. The evaluation in Botswana was very nice and provided the opportunity to adjust horses to the desired level.

The guides were wonderful and knowledgeable and we saw far more wildlife than we ever expected, both in the saddle and out. By the end of the trip it felt like a (very adventurous) hack out with good friends. It was a true once in a lifetime experience..except that we’re already planning to go back!! [Sarah from In The Saddle comments: It is wonderful to see that you had an amazing time on this safari and you really must go back sometme!]

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

None—as is often the case, we were the most informed out of the group when it came to logistics and itinerary.[Sarah from In The Saddle comments: It is great to hear that you loved our booklet itinerary, and that out of all the agencies you continue to find that our guests are the most well prepared for their trips]

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

None—thank you for taking credit card payments!!
