Horizon Lodge - South Africa

Camp Davidson

5 star rating   12 April 2019

Michelle who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. A truly special place | The horses are just amazing and so well trained. There is a horse to suit any ability and they matched me really well. Having been before, i had my favourite (Zara) and was lucky enough to have her at camp with me when I arrived. At the lodge all horses i rode were new to me and I can honestly say I enjoyed every horse I rode. Definitely made some new favourites for my next trip! This place really does put the welfare of the horses before anything else and it shows by how happy the horses are.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The food was plentiful and every meal was delicious. Good job there was plenty of riding each day to burn off all the food that I consumed 🙂

You can't. You provide an excellent service and all the information i could need is included in the packs you send out.

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

I couldn't fault the service provided. Even Horizon comment on how excellent you are to deal with.

This was my second visit to Horizon Lodge and Camp Davidson. There is something really special about this place and I will definitely be returning again. The whole team just made me feel so welcome and I felt at home straight away. The horses are just amazing, forward going but really well trained and I never felt incorrectly matched. Definitely made some new favourites this time and loved every horse that I rode. The riding is varied with loads of different activities but by far the best is being able to swim with the horses. Such an amazing experience. The guides took great care of me and were so knowledgeable about the bush. Came away wishing i could remember everything i was told. It was lovely to see familiar faces from the last visit. I will definitely be returning and would love to try the African explorer trip next time.
