|Yes, that's me! About an hour after we arrived,|
I was riding Champion and those are elephants in the distance!
Yes, that's why I've not been blogging - we've been in Africa!
We were lucky enough to enjoy a FANTASTIC week from In The Saddle with African Horseback Safaris at the Macatoo Camp in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
I kept a rough diary whilst we were there, and I'm still editing it and breaking it down into blog-sized pieces, but the next several weeks of blog posts will be to do with this trip, and a lot of it is going to be about my horsey adventures, the amazing crew and fabulous experiences at Macatoo. Then it'll be followed by a week of adventures in Franschhoek (wine!) and Cape Town (food!) in South Africa.
I was absolutely thrilled to find myself riding wonderful horses up VERY close to elephants, giraffe, zebra, tsessebe, impala, wildebeest, hippo, crocodile and many, many more. I know that not all readers of this blog are horse people, but who wouldn't want to read about an elephant farting near my head whilst I snoozed in our safari tent, or climbing off your horse in the middle of nowhere only to be greeted by a crew member offering you a glass of champagne? You'll love it, trust me!
So, please bear with me for a few days, whilst I get myself organised, and then grab a coffee and sit back while I share my amazing adventures at Marvellous Macatoo ...
