African Horseback Safaris were early pioneers of horse riding safaris in Africa and, nearly two decades later, they pride themselves on offering one of the most unique and exciting horseback adventures in the world.
Led by talented guides, their guests have 450,000 acres of pristine wilderness of the Okavango Delta to explore on calm, experienced horses, offering exhilarating rides alongside big game, such as giraffe, zebra and elephant.
Combined with Macatoo Camp, their luxurious tented bush camp accommodation in an exquisite African setting, they offer the riding adventure of a lifetime.
Accommodation at Macatoo Camp
A variety of sleeping configurations offer flexible accommodation to suit every need: honeymooners, families or those who are new to or nervous in the bush can relax with peace of mind and privacy. The newly-built honeymoon tent for couples celebrating any special occasion, has an additional deck for private dining as well as a raised double tub bath offering a view of the floodplain.
The ‘family and friends suite' comprises two tents, directly linked by a raised walkway and viewing deck above ground, which provides direct, easy access for parents, children and single travellers who are anxious about sleeping alone.
Between rides and activities, our swimming pool deck has a number of sun beds on which guests can read, relax and soak up the sun. As it also commands a wonderful view of the vast flood plain in front of camp, it is the perfect spot to view birds and game (don’t forget your binoculars). Elephants and giraffe often come very close to the deck and the pool doubles as a popular watering hole for passing families of baboons.
Well-lit pathways link all our communal mess tent and dining deck, pool and guest accommodation. A fire burns in front of the mess tent, whatever the time of year, around which we gather to eat under the sun and stars, drink fresh coffee and fine wines and swap stories of the day.
A short drive away, and at the top of a long, sturdy ladder is our magical tree sleep-out deck where we enjoy lunches, drinks and even the occasional sleepover under the African night sky.
