Horse safari in the Limpopo Valley
The Limpopo Valley … here the true Africa begins to reveal itself, a land that is sometimes rich and sometimes merciless, with its scarce pools of water, dotted with shaggy vegetation, which gives shelter and food to its inhabitants. The Limpopo valley takes its name from the river of the same name, dry for most of the year but which can reveal great surprises during the rainy season when everything is reborn. Poignant sunsets await you and as the evening falls, the swarming around your tents will make you dream and tremble under the starry sky.
Departure dates available on request all year round with a minimum of 1 person departing from Italy.
Start on Sunday.
PARTICIPANTS: MIN 2 MAX 8
Pick-up at Johannesburg airport (expect to arrive by 10.00 am) and transfer to a small airport of about 40 minutes, where you will take a small Cessna that will take you directly to the small one in just an hour and a half Limpopo Valley Airfield airport in Botswana, in this area called Tuli, which includes the Mashatsu private reserve and surrounding villages. Meeting with the guides and transfer of 10 minutes to the stables where, after a quick lunch and breefing, everyone is in the saddle for a first horseback safari that will take us to the tented camp. Dinner and overnight at the tented camp.
The next 6 nights will be itinerant, we will move to different semi-fixed or mobile tented camps (fly camp), in order to have the opportunity to get to know the whole reserve. The alarm will always be at 5.30 to be on horseback very early and have the chance to spot wildlife before it hides from the heat. This almost desert-like reserve can vary greatly during the rainy season where it is covered with green grass and flowers. In the morning we will go on a long horse safari of about 5/6 hours and return to the camp for lunch. After a well-deserved rest, in the afternoon they will go on safari on foot or by jeep in search of the felines. Meals and overnight stay in a tented camp.
Breakfast and transfer to the small airport of Limpopo Valley Airfield. Flight of about an hour and a half with subsequent transfer to Johannesburg International Airport.
