Ant's Lodges - South Africa

Ant's Nest

5 star rating   18 October 2019

Philippa (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Safari on horseback | The riding and experience of seeing the wild animals in the bush at close hand even surpassed our high expectations. It was fantastic. My daughters and I are all at different levels of riding but we all totally enjoyed the same rides by being on well matched horses. I liked being on a steady horse whilst one of my daughters enjoyed riding forward going horses

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The catering was amazing. The only slight thing that possibly might improve the food was that the starters of the main meal were often mousse type starters and puddings were often blancmange type of deserts which we were not very keen on but that is just personal preference. Generally the catering was superb.
