Ant's Lodges - South Africa

Ant's Nest

5 star rating   6 December 2019

Christopher who has been on 8 In The Saddle rides. A unique experience riding amongst the wildlife | The riding suited our abilities and wishes apart from one morning when the guide set too fast a pace making the horses over excited and competitive and difficult to control. We drew this to the attention of the senior staff at Ant's Hill and they undertook to retrain the guide in question who had behaved in a similar way quite recently. We found the guides at Nest to be generally more sociable, helpful and informative about the wildlife and environment than those at Hill.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

We thought that the food at Hill was superior in terms of quality and presentation to that at Nest. As we started riding at 7:30am we would have preferred to have breakfast after the ride, or out in the bush. We mentioned this to the staff at Hill and they undertook to look in to possibilities for the future.
