I will be delighted to give you all the information you need.

 

RIDING ABILITY

Please note that all horse safaris are only for experienced riders. Sporty and long canters require a good level of riding. It is of great advantage if you are a fit and proficient rider and used to long hours in the saddle. Please understand, that no novices or inexperienced riders can be taken with on trail and will be dismounted if the riding ability is not sufficient or a danger to the rest of the group.

The weight limit for riders is usually around 85 – 95 kg.

 

CLOTHING & EQUIPMENT LIST

Shorts and T-shirts can be worn throughout the year during the daytime, even in winter, but it can get quite cold on early morning and evening game drives. It is therefore advisable to take warm clothes with you whatever time of year you are travelling.

Rainwear should be taken during the rainy seasons, although as these seasons are becoming harder to predict, it is advisable to take a light rain jacket at any time of year, just in case.

Please make sure that you wear neutral or khaki colours.

It is suggested that you take the following items to fully enjoy your safari. The list may seem obvious but please remember that it is difficult to buy replacements when you are in the bush;

  • Visas, tickets, passports, money, insurance, yellow fever certificate (where applicable) and photocopies
  • Driving licence if renting a car
  • Good quality sunglasses (2 pairs are better)
  • Jodhpurs and half or full chaps
  • Comfortable riding boots, please bring whatever you usually wear to ride in. New equipment is not a good idea, rather come with something you are most comfortable in.
  • A light weight riding helmet, preferably with a good circulation is highly recommended.
  • Riding gloves if you use them
  • Hat for sun protection
  • Sweater/jersey/fleece
  • Anorak/parka (polar fleece is good), fleece hat and gloves (essential for cold mornings) for the winter months
  • Light rain wear (the weather throughout Africa and the Indian Ocean is becoming harder to predict, therefore we recommend taking something to keep you dry in case of showers/rain)
  • T-shirts and one long-sleeved cotton shirt
  • Shorts/ skirts
  • Long trousers
  • Underwear and socks (cotton)
  • Pyjama
  • Swimming costume
  • Sarong/cotton wrap around
  • Good walking shoes (sneakers, or running shoes are good)
  • Sandals /flip flops
  • Small amount of bio-degradable washing powder (almost all camps offer a free or low cost laundry service but in some areas, for traditional reasons, staff will not wash women’s underwear)
  • Personal toiletries, tissues/”Wet Ones”
  • Basic medical kit (aspirins, plasters, antiseptic, rehydration salts, and anti-histamine cream etc).
  • Malaria prophylaxis and regular medication (keep this with you in hand luggage in case of delays)
  • High factor suntan lotion
  • Insect repellent
  • For those who suffer from motion sickness, it is worth taking travel sickness medication with you (particularly if you are flying by light aircraft at any stage on your holiday).
  • If you wear contact lenses we recommend that you bring along a pair of glasses in case you get eye irritation from the dust or misplace your lenses or solution.
  • A small rucksack for use in vehicles
  • Camera equipment and spare batteries. We do not recommend “go pros” as they can get tangled in the branches and bushes.
  • Small torch or head torch and spare batteries
  • Binoculars
