Ant's Nest and Ant's Hill Featured

Ant's Nest and Ant's Hill are both very private bush homes. They are located on their own private game reserve in the magnificent, malaria-free Waterberg region of the Limpopo province in South Africa. Our aim is to provide our guests with a unique safari experience, offering a wide range of activities to keep everyone entertained, from the youngest to the oldest, the fittest to those most in need of a rest. You can enjoy fabulous game viewing in a variety of ways: Guided game walks, from a gentle stroll down the plains to a more strenuous hike over rugged hills, which enable you to gain a detailed knowledge of African fauna and flora. Game drives in open 4 wheel drive Land-cruisers, which allow you to cover more ground and experience wildlife in a traditional but less energetic way. We have 70 horses so can offer some of the most exciting game viewing on horseback in Africa, whatever your age or riding ability. We are very flexible. Your guide will tailor-make each day specifically to suit you and your family - so wake up when you want and enjoy a time of pure relaxation or action packed excitement. Ant's Nest and Ant's Hill are owned and run by Ant and Tessa Baber. The Baber family were one of the earliest pioneers in the area, settling here in 1886. Of English and Irish descent, they carry with them a love for Africa's wide open spaces, adventure and a passion for its wildlife. In the mid 1990's Ant and Tessa renovated an old ranch house, which became Ants Nest and, in 2003, built Ants Hill above a spectacular gorge, designing each room to make the most of the magnificent view. Specializing in a home from home experience, both lodges can either be booked exclusively, to one group at a time, or you can book just one room, making it a wonderful destination for families, riders, honeymooners or just good friends travelling together. Horse Riding Both Ant's Nest and Ant's Hill offer the opportunity for some of the greatest game viewing in the African bush - from horseback. You can canter along open sandy tracks or traverse high ridges with spectacular vistas. The pace can be as fast or relaxed as the riders would like. Often we can get so close to the game that the experience remains unforgettable. We have fit, reliable and responsive horses, providing a choice for both the professional rider and the absolute beginner. (You do not need to have ridden before). The herd of over 70 horses is made up of big thoroughbreds and Arab-boerperd crosses and includes some fabulous children's ponies. Each ride is led by two competent guides and the emphasis is on safety at all times. The enthusiastic rider may wish to ride twice daily and turn their stay into a luxury riding safari. Families or couples, where some ride and others don't, can enjoy separate activities.
