Ant's Lodges - South Africa

Ant's Hill

5 star rating   3 September 2021

Nour (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) An amazing, unforgettable, luxurious horse riding vacation | The riding exceeded expectation. I went on this vacation with my wife who is a beginner rider - she was able to canter from the first day given how lovely, well trained, and well-disciplined the horses were. The rides were tailored to our levels (I would sometimes go cantering with a guide while she would go on a chill afternoon walk on the horse with another guide).

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation is extremely luxurious. We were staying at the Hideaway in the Ants Hill - it is one of a kind. All amenities that you may need would be available on-site. Laundry is done on a daily basis too.
Everyday you would have different food offered, and would have dinner and lunch at different locations each time. The chef cooks AMAZING food! The staff at the lodge are extremely nice and helpful including the guides, the management team, the cooks, and the support staff.
