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 or office. We are great for groups, great for teambuilding, and family friendly.

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. We get close enough 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 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.

I have an optional interactive quiz for teams, for some friendly competition. You'll need a second device.

>> I am now hosting this experience using a golf-cart and no longer on horseback. The format & wildlife viewing is unchanged, the only difference is the absence of my horse's curious ears on my screen. You'll still meet him at the end <<

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.

What a wonderful time we had with Deirdre and the animals! I particularly enjoyed the storytelling around the animals and even her personal life. She truly cares for those animals and knows them so well, it's really wonderful to see. It felt like travelling at a time when we are all stuck at home. Thanks again!

Thank you Deirdre for a fabulous Virtual Wildlife Safari. It was truly wonderful seeing all the animals freely roaming the park (esp the Giraffes), learn new and interesting facts about the wildlife, and hear your own personal story of how you came to work at the wildlife sanctuary.

My family had a fantastic online experience. Deirdre was super friendly, informative and entertaining. The landscape and wildlife was spectacular. I highly recommend this tour.

Comments from our team members: “So so good, let’s do a company retreat when we can travel, a fantastic way to end the Friday!” Seriously everyone just gave the thumbs up! We get to know the animals at the sanctuary. Some were curious about us or maybe Deirdre. She’s sensitive about observing and not getting into the wild animals space. She introduced the horses to us, she knew their temperaments. Thank you Deirdre for a most engaging tour! ❤️❤️❤️

Deirdre's tour was really enjoyable - a beautiful setting that was lovely to see, quite apart from the animals! Great to experience all that from our sofa.
