Tuli Safari - Botswana

Tuli Safari

5 star rating   20 March 2022

Anne who has been on 18 In The Saddle rides. Another excellent safari | Lots of walking to view game but long canters where appropriate and terrain allowed.
Perfectly matched to my horse ( a bit of 'cheating' as I had ridden him before and was delighted to be reacquainted after 4 years!).

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Fantastic food as always, everyone well catered for including the vegetarian in our group.
Unfortunately it rained both nights we were open air sleeping at the Kgotla. The tents were standing ready though and we had our bags packed just in case. They whisked our beds into the tents with the minimum of fuss - follow your bed,in the dark, in the pouring rain, all part of the adventure!
The new tree house is amazing. When we arrived only half the showers and toilets were working which was a minor inconvenience - apparently the elephants had pulled the plumbing/piping out

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

All information up to date and correct. Three ladies from America travelling in our group but not with ITS waited for over an hour at the Intercontinental hotel, the old meeting place. No harm done though.

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

All perfectly fine

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Perfect organisation both with yourselves and Horizon. Becky answered all my last minute queries promptly. I get the 'last minute jitters' before I travel but I never worry about asking even the most ridiculous questions as they are always answered quickly and without judgement!!
I was concerned about the need for a pcr test for travel back to South Africa while in the middle of the bush but Becky allayed my fears and it was indeed slickly organised in Botswana. Who else could say that while on their way to a pcr test they had a lion and a leopard sighting??!!
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and it's great to hear that you had such a great holiday!]
