Damara Ride - Namibia

Damara Elephant Safari

5 star rating   19 August 2023

Rosa who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Nothing else like it!! | This is the second time I have ridden with Andrew and was again brilliant! If you like fast long hours in the saddle then this is for you. It is for experienced riders only, take this seriously. We had one rider (not booked through IntheSaddle) who had to leave after the first day as she found the pace and style of riding too much. You must be well-balanced, able to hold a light seat, have light hands, be comfortable with loose horses nipping in front of you and ‘wacky races’. If happy with all of this then it will be one of the best horsey holidays you will have ever been on. The horses are true athletes and very well taken care of- only do 3 or so Safari’s across the year and off for the rest making for some very happy horses.

[Abbie from ITS replies: Thanks so much for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your return visit to Namibia.]
