Ant's Lodges - South Africa

Ant's Nest

5 star rating   10 November 2022

Ruth who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Another delightful African stay | The riding was excellent. We (Myself and my daughter Rebecca) were always asked what sort of ride we would like by our first class guides. We opted for long canters interspersed with close encounters with a variety of game viewings.

Feel comfortable about your transfers and what to expect?
5 star rating

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

You have just the right balance of relevant information.
Maybe the booklets could do with updating as the things offered by hosts has changed. I was led to believe that the zip lining was no longer available.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?


Do you have any other feedback for us?

We enjoyed our fourth visit to Ant's Nest, which by itself speaks of how much we love it here. The standards of riding, care of the horses, food and accommodation remain constantly high. Every thing is so well organised. All the staff including the excellent guides are welcoming, knowledgeable and make you feel at home.
We would love to return for our fifth visit hopefully sometime next year.
