WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

I just got back from my first horse safari in the Okavango Delta and I absolutely LOVED it. It was everything I expected and more. We saw a lot of wildlife including lots of zebra, elephants, giraffe, buffalo, antelope and even a lion on the last day. The horses were fit and really well taken care of. The organization was great, and the food in particular was amazing. It was a really fun group and David is a fantastic guide, extremely knowledgeable. The Okavango Delta is spectacular and all of our camping spots were stunning. All of our bags and camping gear was transported by mokoro - and we didn't see a single vehicle during the entire safari. Overall I can't recommend this trip enough, and booking with Isabel was super easy. Already planning the next trip with African Horse Safaris.

By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you simply just won't find any better team!

Our riding safari at African Big Five Horse Safaris was so fantastic! We saw so much and so close! Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. The staff was so dear, the horses well trained and immaculate. I loved everything about our week in Makalali and hated to leave, hope to get back.
