Ant's Lodges - South Africa

Ant's Hill

5 star rating   29 February 2024

Liz who has been on 20 In The Saddle rides. Fantastic! | Great range of horses, I rode 5 during the holiday. They offer horses to suit every level from complete beginner right up to livelier horses for charging about on. You can bring along non-riding friends and they can have a go too! A novice rider was being taught to canter while she was staying there, which she was loving. The riding varies slightly according to which lodge you pick (we stayed at both). As a nervous rider I felt super-safe, and the horses aren't at all fazed by the wildlife. They're very sure-footed on the steeper tracks.

This was our second trip to Ant's, we're about to book our third for next year. The staff are all great, brilliant guides, great accommodation staff, and the volunteers are good fun. Riding so close to the wildlife is amazing. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
