What a fantastic experience, real peace and quiet for the soul. You don't have to set your alarm clock, the lions will wake you with their roars. Walking with the lions is such an amazing experience, I would definitely recommend doing it. The horse riding was special, riding through a mixed terrain of flat fields, hills, trees, a stream, a dam and a wide variety of animals. The guides are very knowledgeable about the animals you see on the trail. A unique experience with some very unique people!

I stayed at Colin's Horseback for one night in March and had a brilliant experience. All staff were wonderful and couldn't have been more helpful despite clearly tough times ahead. The accommodation is authentic and comfortable (wrong place to come if you're looking for luxury) but you are sleeping less than 20 yards from fully grown lions. The horseback safari was amazing, we saw giraffe, wilder-beast, zebra, kudu and much more. Being on horseback we were able to follow the wildlife and get up much closer than on normal safaris. After lunch we went walking with the lions and watched them feed before interacting with the lion cubs. The conservation project underway at Colin's will be explained in full but rest assured that this is a facility that is wholly opposed to contributing directly or indirectly to any sort of hunting either legal or illegal. Their lions are raised in such a way to give them the greatest chance to be released to the wild. I will certainly be back to Colin's. Thank you.

I was at Colin's for a weekend in between some business events. Did three rides ("safari" first morning, then evening ride the same day and, since I did not have enough, earl morning ride the next day. Connie and her staff was phenomenal, I was lucky to ride with another another customer who was similarly skilled and they took us on a progression of difficulty and fun, ending with a full gallop. All this while seeing giraffes, gnus, zebras and more. I also did the walk with the lions that is really interesting, pleasant and informative. Playing with 6 mo and less than 1 month old lions is really fun! The staff is all excellent. My room was simple but clean and comfortable. Just be aware that when you arrive from the main (dirt) road you have to pull the gate to the property open yourself --there is no cellphone reception at the gate. I did not give full marks for sleep quality because you get lions roaring from 5AM; this is kind of fun and did not bother me, but I guess does not qualify for perfect sleep.

Thank you so much for enjoying our beautiful home with us. I really had to laugh when you write that you did not give a 5 star for sleep quality because of the lions roaring!! That is SO funny!!
