Ant's Hill & Ant's Nest Questions & Answers

Columbia, Maryland

Hello,

I am also in my late-20s, and have always wanted to go on a horseback riding safari. I am a decent rider, but do not have any close friends who ride that are willing to go to South Africa on safari. I was planning on going to South Africa this October, and am debating whether I should try going to Ant's Hill as a single female. It would only be for a few days before meeting up with friends who will be mountain climbing when I am looking at doing my solo trip to Ant's Hill.

My question is- do you think you would have felt safe being at Ant's Hill by yourself?

Thank you,

Heidi

We went to Ants Nest in January. Felt totally safe .. Wrt the riding - my husband doesn't ride and I hadn't done so for some years. I was taken out with a lead guide and someone else behind. We went at whatever pace I chose, I could have gone out with others, they had enough staff and selection of horses to be totally flexible.

It was a wonderful experience.

Yes, most defiantly. When we was at Ants Hill, there was 2 separate single females on holiday there. Both very well looked after.

Hi Heidi,

I can ashure you - Ant`s Hill and Nest are very safe and comfortable places. The teams are taking care of one very much and I was the only single women there and it was great.

I had arranged that I got picked up by them at airport Joburg and brought back. Everything worked out perfectly.

Also about riding, they have all sorts of horses for every ability. I had a wonderful time there. Just do it.
