The food we were served for dinner was absolutely stunning and afterwards we still sat around the campfire where we were convinced to stay an extra day and do some of the activities on offer the next day.
First activity on the program was horseback riding on the reserve, now since I have not been on a hors on the last fifteen years, I must say it was not something I was looking forward to, but man, was it fun! The horse I got was the best listener of the group and it was easier to ride then any other way of transportation I had ever used. Pul the rope left and you go left, right is right and pull it towards you and it stops, give it a little tick with your feet and of you go again. I loved it. And what I loved even more is how close you can get to the animals on a horse.
Like I said the reserve is only 200ha and it is full with antelopes. We got up close to giraffes, zebra, springbok, kudu, eland, oryx, impala and even a few black springbok which I had never seen before. Really amazing! In the afternoon we picked one of three walking routes that are indicated with little licks of paint in red, green and blue all over the reserve a nice walk of about an hour was the perfect end to a last day in Maun and made us real thirsty for an ice-cold Gin-Tonic which we enjoyed during sundown on the deck of our tent.
