Nile Explorer - Uganda

Nile Explorer

5 star rating   9 July 2023

Mary who has been on 14 In The Saddle rides. Off the Beaten Track | Natalie and TJ are true horse people who really care for their horses. The horses are bomb proof (no falls on our ride). They also gallop very fast. I rode a pony called Bullrush and he was perfect for me.
The rides along the Nile and through the villages was an amazing experience and we had a great break for lunch along the way. The scenery was beautiful so much green and the ride through the forest seeing monkeys was a unique.
Staying at Wild Waters topped off a fabulous week. I would also recommend doing the rafting as the crew are really professional and kept to their word that my boat would not flip.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation at Holland Park has room for improvement and I have written a review on Tripadvisor. Location is amazing and basics are good but needs to be cleaner and more attention to detail.
Food was good at all the locations and particularly at Wild Waters.
The Haven was excellent and good acccommodation and food.
