Visit our Gallery for a ‘feel’ of what’s it’s like to be on safari, in the saddle, under the stars and eating good food.  Our How to Book page will guide you through the process


Internet:  Consider yourself ‘unplugged’ while on safari – cell-phone reception is minimal at best and internet not at all except in cities and larger towns.   There are 12 volt usb chargers in our vehicles for small devices, not for large power-packs.


Laundry:  Water is a very precious commodity in a desert so while it is possible to rinse a few smalls while on safari, only lodges and hotels have laundry service.  See our packing list for our recommendations on what to bring.


Insurance:  Having comprehensive medical insurance is a condition for riding with us.  You will be required to sign an indemnity which assumes you have read our Riding Policy in which you will discover we take the well-being of our horses very seriously.  For their sake, please be accurate about your weight, riding ability and fitness.
