Magical Makadi Bay
6 days / 5 nights Full Board £875 (based on 2 sharing)

This holiday will give you the chance to really see the speed and power that Arabian horses have to offer, with unlimited opportunities for galloping through the vast Sinai desert at the foot of the mountains, and kicking up sand and salty sea water as you fly along the stunning coastline of the Red Sea on horseback. Of course, no beach holiday would be complete without a swim and our horses LOVE to swim so get your ‘cozzy’ ready for a refreshing dip with your four-legged friend.

One final memory that we’d like to leave you with as part of this wonderful adventure is a night under the twinkling stars of the Sinai night sky. Be prepared to see more stars in the sky than you ever thought possible as you camp out in the peaceful silence of the desert – you may even catch a glimpse of the Milky Way!

Itinerary

Day 1 – Upon arrival, we will meet you at the airport and transport you to your hotel accommodation where you can relax in readiness for the holiday fun to begin.

Day 2 – After breakfast we will pick you up from the hotel and bring you to our stables in stunning Makadi Bay. Our facility overlooks the exquisite turquoise sea, with miles of tremendous mountains and deserts behind us making it the perfect riding destination.

Our morning starts along the vast, uninterrupted coastline. The long stretches of open ground along the Red Sea make this an ideal place to stretch out and enjoy long canters or faster paced gallops. There will be plenty of time to relax (or snorkel for those who would like to) before riding back along the stunning coastline to the stables.

Day 3 – Today’s ride will find us exploring desert terrain. After breakfast and saddling up the horses, we will head out into the desert where you can really see these beautiful Arabian horses fly! With miles and miles of untouched sandy terrain burrowing deep into the mountains, you will experience the thrill of galloping through almost eerie emptiness matched with perfect silence before the sun peaks at its hottest and highest above the undulating sand dunes. There will be photo opportunities galore as we ride back to the stables in readiness for an Egyptian feast.

Day 4 – Today sees us back on the beach and paddling around in the crystal clear waters of Makadi Bay on horseback. We will enjoy a morning canter along the sea before unsaddling the horses and joining them for a truly memorable refreshing dip in the Red Sea – our four-legged friends really love to swim!

Enjoy a delicious lunch on the beach and some time to relax before some glorious canters back to the stables to dry off.

Day 5/6 – Our favourite day of the holiday gives you a morning of relaxation at the hotel, time for cocktails, massages and all the extra luxuries the hotel has to offer.

After lunch and as the sun starts to cool off, we will pick you up from the hotel and ride into the desert where you will really understand the beauty and awe-inspiring nature of this amazing country as you witness a true Egyptian sunset – an experience you will most definitely never forget.

Before darkness falls, we will ride on to our camp for the night and settle the horses down before enjoying a delicious feast of Egyptian cuisine. You can look forward to an evening of relaxation beneath the twinkling starts of the Sinai night sky with plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the night sky, try some shisha, drinks and listen to the content munching of our horses in the background.

After a restful night’s sleep, morning breakfast will be made and after some time to refresh we will ride back to the stables to arrive back late morning in readiness for your flight home. Our team will take you to the airport at the time of your flight departures.
