Ant's Lodges - South Africa

Ant's Nest

5 star rating   17 February 2020

Karen who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Best holiday ever | The riding was brilliant. The horses were responsive, easy to ride and extremely well cared for. Being able to get so close to the animals without the sound of vehicles was a highlight. We enjoyed the mix of riding. We spent time wandering gently through the bush, climbing and descending rocky slopes, cantering along sandy tracks and galloping for miles on horses that never seem to tire. The absolute best bit of the day was riding to sundowners in a different location each night.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

We were extremely impressed with the standard of our rooms, especially the outdoor shower and the huge covered verandas. The food was delicious and having the staff dine with you at lunch and dinner led to us feeling like part of the family. It was sometimes difficult to summon up enough hunger to do each meal justice!
Every single member of staff was incredibly friendly. You really felt that you were more than just a guest. The way they planned the next day with you at such a personal level made us feel cared about and added an extra level of service.
Overall, an outstanding place to stay.
