Wait A Little - South Africa

Big Five Safari

5 star rating   18 June 2023

Mary who has been on 11 In The Saddle rides. Super Big Five Safari | Wait a Little, Gerti and Philip were the perfect hosts backed up by an amazing team of people to help us with the horses.
I rode three different horses, my favourites being Ice and Miguel. They were forward going but totally controllable at all paces.
The experience with the game was unsurpassed and we got very close without the horses spooking.
Accommodation at Wait A Little was great as were the meals. At the other camp, Xi Dulu, we stayed in an amazing lodge.
Food was top notch, freshly cooked and well presented.
I would highly recommend this experience.

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

I think in future the pick ups need to be confirmed with the contractor. As mentioned at Hoedspruit the operator was unaware of my pick up but thankfully there were others on the flight.

I’d also suggest you stress the need for warm clothes - ie polartec, fleece etc. Very cold at night in July.
