Was very nervous for this trip ! I am not a big horse rider but as an agent I really wanted to experience Zambia's first and only Horseback safari camp..........WOW This is a little piece of heaven and I def had the most gentle amazing horse...I cannot speak highly enough of everything Gail and Doug have put into this project. Truly spoilt to have had this opportunity in my life. Thank you.

Simalaha August 21st – 25th 2020 I approached my first horse safari with a little trepidation at the prospect of 6 hours a day in the saddle and 4 nights in a tent. In fact our stay at Simalaha surpassed all expectations. On arrival the setting of the camp, overlooking a vast expanse of golden flood plain, quite blows you away. Nestled amongst the trees are 4 luxury tents with outside en suite, king size beds, crisp cotton bed linen and discreet solar lamps complete with USB sockets. Every detail is eco-friendly to blend with this unique, unspoiled wildlife conservancy. The main dining area under the stars with its stunning views is furnished for comfort with bright cushions and plenty of throws for the chilly nights where the campfire blazes as we exchange our stories of the day. Each horse has a personality but they are all perfectly trained and paired to individual riders for safety and comfort as we explore the flood plain in search of wildebeest and zebra both of which are plentiful. We ride amongst waterbuck, red lechwe and hartebeest as they graze across the plain and marvel at the elegance of the giraffe looking down at us through the acacia trees. Four hours in the saddle is broken by a welcome coffee and home-made biscuits, we then continue our safari before heading home for showers and lunch. The food, prepared freshly on site, is exceptional and the service faultless. A welcome siesta is followed by tea and delicious cake before we set out for a shorter ride as the colours deepen under the late afternoon sun. Stopping for sundowners amongst the trees the sunset is breathtaking. Whilst the daily pattern is repeated somehow each ride is different providing an ever changing landscape rich in colour and wildlife. An unforgettable experience. Thank you Doug, Gail and the Simalaha team.

Dear Nick B Thank you so much for taking the time to share in detail your experience of Simalaha Horse Safaris. We are thrilled to hear that your first horse safari surpassed expectations - and hope that it won't be your last! The Simalaha is just magical, with the golden hues changing to varying greens with the onset of the rains, and all the wild flowers in bloom. Storm clouds building in the distance make for some dramatic and moody skies too - the floodplain's breathtaking beauty can be marveled at for days. Hope you'll join us again at Simalaha for more riding, exploring and experiencing. Best wishes from all of us at Simalaha Horse Safaris and Chundukwa River Lodge
