What you'll do

** PLEASE REQUEST YOUR PREFERRED DATE IF IT'S NOT AVAILABLE ON MY CALENDAR **

This is an online experience - LIVE (not pre-recorded) - where you will join me from the comfort of your own home. We are great for groups, great for teambuilding, family friendly & to tour before you travel.

We start at the entrance to the 240ha wildlife sanctuary where we will go in search of the variety of South African Wildlife that inhabit the reserve.

I will share the history of the farm, teach you about the various types of animals we will encounter and tell you stories about those living in the reserve that I've grown to know. As we are on horseback, we get closer than if we were in a vehicle to observe free-roaming wildlife in their habitat but we maintain respect for their space at all times and keep a distance they are comfortable with.

When we get back to the horse camp, I will introduce you to our 13 gentle horses, a South African breed called a Boerperd, and we'll feed carrots and answer any questions you might still have.

Other things to note:
This is a virtual experience so you need to join on your computer or phone

>> Please note that I am currently hosting this experience using a golf-cart due to an injury, and not on horseback. The format & wildlife viewing is unchanged, the only difference is the absence of my horse's curious ears on my screen :-)

Hi, I'm Deirdre. For the last 7 years I have been taking guests on rides through a 240ha wildlife sanctuary that is home to giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and a variety of South African antelope and birds. I have led first time riders as well as experienced riders, children, couples, families, corporate teams and hosted birthdays, engagements and other celebrations. I am passionate about horses and wildlife and love sharing these magical moments with our guests - many who are seeing these magnificent animals for the first time.

Really enjoyed the tour of the wildlife reserve with Deirdre. She was a fantastic host - witty, thoughtful and engaging. The connection was patchy in a couple of sections, but our wonderful host was aware and warned us where this might happen. Her knowledge of the animals was great, and I enjoyed her witty tales of life on the reserve. Thoroughly enjoyable! Hope to come see this reserve one day in person. THANKYOU!!!

This was an excellent way to experience the beautiful South African scenery and watch some wonderful animals. Deirdre is a great guide who kept us engaged for the whole session. I can’t wait until we can go and visit in person.

This experience was better than my expectations. A real wow, and so lovely to be a part of after international travel has been a no go for a while. Thank you I will visit one day in person.

Animals were closer than I expected and Deirdre did a wonderful job of educating us, answering our questions and showing us the wildlife!

Dierdre was great - very engaging and informative and I learned a few things about the animals. I left feeling like I got a real sense of what a small game reserve is like. I can't wait to visit South Africa in person one day.

It was a fantastic experience with Deirdre. The beautiful scenery, amazing animals, and gorgeous weather were all impressive. I learned a lot and enjoyed the experience. It was great to see a slice of daily life on the sanctuary in South Africa.
