Junglecat and its founders Elizabeth and Martin, a young couple both originally from Southern Africa, are focused on providing quality horseback experiences.
Elizabeth grew up in Botswana and has enjoyed horse riding and competing from a young age. While at university in New Zealand she taught children and adults at the Auckland Equestrian Center part time. After having moved to Panama the dream to own a trail riding company has become a reality. The trails here in the mountains of Central America provide some of the most spectacular scenery and you'll often see Elizabeth out and about exploring new routes on horseback. Additionally her and her partner Martin endeavor to support the local horse culture, a big part of the lifestyle here in Panama.
Martin was born and grew up in South Africa and attended an agricultural boarding school. There in Africa his passion for animals, especially reptiles blossomed. As an adult, with over ten years of experience managing hotels, resorts, and lodges in Zambia, South America, and the USA, Martin found himself in the beautiful mountains of Santa Fe. Here the idea of Junglecat Panama was born. The preservation of local culture, community, and environment is his primary objective allowing him to bridge the gap between tourist and local thus providing an authentic Panamanian experience.
