The wagon trail safaris are ideal for families or friends, Get the chance and feeling of reins in your hands while you’re driving your own double wagon it is no obligation there will be drivers .The trail is between two and four days, only on dirt roads in this beautiful farming region. You get to do everything together, just like our forefathers had to. Each wagon sleeps two adults, with tents which can accommodate two or more people. Sleep in the wagon , a tent or under the stars .
The food and equipment is provided, you cook on open fires, just like they did in the old wagon days. Enjoy the unity of family and the camaraderie of new friends. All camps have hot water and toilets. You can learn some basic horse care, like how to put on and take off a double harness, and how to drive the horses. But it's really basic stuff, although a wonderful and fun experience – at a slow pace!
