Macatoo - Botswana

Riding Safari

5 star rating   25 March 2024

Vanessa who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Holiday of a lifetime! | The guides were extremely skilled and very sensitive and respectful of all the wild animals. They helped us track and understand so much. The horses were well cared for and there was plenty of opportunity to change if you wanted to though I was extremely happy with my two, the kind hearted Orapa and nicely schooled Mohembo

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

Could be more explicit on what toiletries are and aren’t there and also no need to take torches as there were plenty. Also saddle bags were available whereas I think the info says they weren’t.

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


Do you have any other feedback for us?

This is the most incredible experience! I went towards the end of March. It was extremely hot 35-40 degrees although I think this was unseasonably so. It did allow for fabulous long fast canters in the morning before it got too hot. The variety of riding, stops, dinner etc was super. Do sleep out on the tree platform, it’s quite an experience! I’m already thinking about when I can go back!
