Amazing place! Horse riding experience makes safari really special. Even for less experienced ones... Never been so close to rhinos and other animals. Fantastic welcoming team who will make you feel like at home. Great for kids.

We stayed at Ants Nest just before the Christmas and New Year break and i'm sorry we didn't have time to stay for the holiday itself. The setting is beautiful and each day can be tailored according to what you want to see or do. The food is amazing (thank you chefs!), good wine and our fellow guests were great company! Thank you so much to all the team, it was a real struggle to leave you all, wish we were back there now with the rhinos, the dogs and ALL the other animals!! Natalie & Jim

We have just returned from staying at Ants Hill and Ants Nest and I cant praise these lodges enough. The horse back safaris, the accommodation and food are amazing but what makes these places even more extraordinary is the family feel - nothing is too much trouble. The other unique quality is the passion the team have for the animals and the work that they are doing to protect the endangered Waterberg Rhino. These lodges have it all!

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.

Room Tip: Every room was unique - we stayed in the Weaver suite but from what I saw every room was of a high s...
