We had a wonderful stay at Ants Hill. From our arrival at the gate to our departure, we were made to feel like part of the family! The facilities are world class and the entourage of skilled staff do not spare anything to ensure you have the best experience! Highly recommended for all - young, old, single or family there is always something to do.

The staff at Ant's Nest deserves a "6" on a five point scale. The team is amazing, they managed to make us feel at home from the first minute we arrived. Safari's be it riding horses (in our case for the first time) or the walking safaris were fantastic. Staff is very knowledgeable about nature. Food is delicious and not over the top as you often see at upmarket lodges like this. My son loved it!! Ever done a early morning bush run and bumped into giraffes and rhino's? We stayed a long weekend and it felt as if we have been a week away from work. I can only strongly recommend to book now

Our stay at Ants Hill with Ant and Tess and all of their terrific helpers made for the most wonderful experience. From the reception until (sadly) having to leave was perfect in every respect. Riding across Africa was the most wonderful experience, the horses were a joy to ride and perfectly matched. Being able to see and encounter wild animals from horse back and at close range was breathtaking,
The hospitality was outstanding in every respect and I would highly recommend this place to both families and friends.

We visited Ant's Nest a year ago now and had a fabulous time. The whole team could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. We were there to see the wildlife on horseback which did not disappoint as you can get so much closer. One of the high points was joining a number of riders from the area to follow and watch the vet at work treating a Cape buffalo. And of course sundowners out in the bush each evening after riding was lovely. Ant himself is a great host and takes a fast ride if that is what you like. The team's work with the rhinos is fantastic and being able to see them so close up is amazing.

Stayed: March 2016, travelled as a couple

We visited Ant's Hill during January and had an amazing stay.
From arrival to departure the Ant's peeps are always there to assist and entertain.
The top top form of entertainment and relaxation are the outrides with horses perfectly chosen for you. I don't actually ride horses and I must say, I enjoyed it immensly!
The kids LOVED it and were catered for in every way!
he rooms are lovely - the fact that they are tucked away singularly in the bush is divine and the food is good, presented by a whitty chef called Friday.

Room Tip: All rooms are super as they are tucked into the bush, it really depending on size of group.
