“We came very close to the animals, but we always felt safe. We galloped with zebra and herds of giraffe – it was absolutely incredible”. (Ellen, Norway).

“The way Jo takes care of her horses out on safari is really unbelievable; a standard we don’t even achieve back home in the comfort of a Western setting”. (Philippe, Belgium).

“The horses are very fit thoroughbreds who love to run. Easy to control but with a huge turn of speed; not for the faint-hearted”. (Debbie, Oxfordshire).

flamingo“Challenging riding on very fit, responsive and obedient horses. I cannot fault it.” (Julie, Aberdeenshire).

“Exceeded my expectations. It was amazing – very exhilarating but I also always felt safe. The horses were fit, responsive and had lovely natures. They were extremely well cared for by the team, as were we”. (Jess, Hampshire).
