Ant's Lodges - South Africa

Experience Level

Ant's Nest

5 star rating   18 January 2019

We were 3 girls from 12 to 38 years old and there was always a horse that suited our riding skills, wishes and temperament. The tack was top notch and the horses were fit, sweet and well taken care of. We had the impression that all our guides knew all the horses very well and had a great love for the horses.
The riding were organized according to our wishes and each day was different. I will give a double satified for the guides' knowledge of both the area, the game and the nature.c

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

We felt surrounded by luxury and a service on a level we have never met before. Everything from the morning coffee served on our terrace, lunch in the bush to cozy evenings was super well prepared. We do not have words that can describe the high level on the hospitality in this place. Everything feels so genuine and straightforward !! The guides / hosts are all fantastic and there has not been a day were we have not laughed and enjoyed ourselves in their company. These guides must really love their jobs, otherwise they would never have been able to give us so much.
The room was beautiful, cozy and in the best African style. It was equipped with everything we needed (and more).
The service was at the very top too. Always clean and tidy, the laundry washed, the bed ready and always prepared when we were going to bed.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

A big thank you to Melina, who has helped organizing our holiday and answer all our questions. We have always been able to get in touch with her, both on telephone, sms and email. We felt completely prepared for this holiday and we got all the information sent in a nice wallet. We simply have no suggestions for improvements and we are looking forward to planning another holiday with Rid & Rejs 🙂

Do you have any other feedback for us?

The whole journey has been fantastic from start to finish. the planning process has been easy, with the help from Melina. The most challenging part has been getting all the papers in order when we had to leave without my daughter's father (South Africa requires a lot of documentation when a child travels without one parent).
The holiday has not only given us experiences we can look back on; It has also touched us deeply and indescribably. We have met amazing people and we have "met" ourselves in a whole new way.
