Horseback Safari

A couple weeks ago, I went on a two hour horseback safari at the Botlierskop Private Game Reserve. It honestly made me realize how long it’s been since I rode. We got to ride through the reserve, and get close to the animals we saw. Unfortunately,we did not see very many animals because of the trails we needed to take the horses on, but the animals that we did see (like waterbuck and lots of birds), we were able to get so close to. I had been a little curious as to if we would be able to see lions on the horseback safari because… well… horses and lions don’t seem like a good combo. Luckily, but unfortunately, the lions are in a separate enclosure, so we were not able to see them. This weekend I am going to try and go on a game drive at the same reserve, so I should be able to see a lot more animals.
