We choose the sundowner and had a lovely evening and delicious braai with Sam. I am a complete amateur when it comes to horseback riding but Sam made me feel at ease directly. The scenery is absolutely beautiful, we would definitely do it again!

Great afternoon spent with Sam and really enjoyed our ride and sundowner. It’s a perfect activity at the start or end of a safari. Sam really cares so well for every horse. We had so much fun.
