African Dream has been a fantastic place to train towards becoming a horse safari guide. I feel very lucky to have had the unique opportunity to gain experience guiding trails while also improving my knowledge of the bush by living in a ‘Big 5’ game reserve.

I enjoyed every minute of working at the stables. Traci has an uncomplicated, caring and effective way of working with each individual horse that is a joy to watch. Living at bush camp was also full of magic moments, like drinking coffee and sharing the sunrise with morning visitors to the water hole. Glen and Traci couldn’t have made me feel more at home, constantly going above and beyond to make all the students feel like family.

I think that is what’s so special about African Dream, that at the heart of it is the Thomson family’s genuine love and passion for the bush, for their horses and for sharing their amazing life with their students!
