Wait a Little Horse Safaris, ‘The Big 5 Ride’, South Africa with host Alice Gully
I’m a director at Aardvark Safaris (@AliceGully) and mother of triplets, I own an eventer and two ponies, and have been tailoring African trips for families for over 16 years. If you would like to ride on a personally guided tour with me I will be hosting the Wait a little Horse Safaris ride ‘The Big 5 Ride’, near Kruger, in South Africa in May 2016. The riding is for seven people and experienced riders only with long canters and small jumps and a good chance of seeing the Big 5. Generally guests ride for up to three hours in the morning before lunch and then head back out again after a siesta later in the afternoon. However, there may also be full day rides with picnics. With 35 well schooled horses, ranging from 14.3hh to 17hh and a mixture of South African Boerperds, thoroughbreds and crosses, warmbloods and Arabs, there are horses to suit all requirements.
