We stayed at Ants Nest for 7 nights for half term week with an 8 year old and a 12 year old. The whole experience from start to finish was truly magical and we couldn't have asked for anything more. All the staff were amazing, very friendly, helpful, knowledgable and they catered to all our desires. As beginner horse riders we were a little nervous but needn't have been - there are amazing horses that are tailored to match the rider. The rooms were wonderfully furnished and the food was amazing every single day - Kobi is a really talented chef but every single person we met was the same in their area of expertise - there really are too many names to mention but the kids wanted to shout out to Squirry for making them laugh so much. Ant and Tessa really have made a unique facility and the work they do with the white rhinos is amazing. Although a little sore from all the riding - I can't wait to go back next year.
