In May 2015 I was lucky enough to visit Ant’s Lodges during the annual Game Census.
Once a year there is a census to count the game on the reserve. Over the course of the week, there are various game captures so that Ant’s can ‘swap’ animals with other reserves. This allows for fresh bloodlines and manages the game so that there is never an over population. The conservation projects at Ant’s Lodges are very interesting as is their Rhino protection charity.
Whilst I was at Ant’s I visited both lodges and enjoyed spending time at both. Nest is lovely with the pool and gardens as a center-piece whilst Hill is wonderfully spread out overlooking a gorge. The accommodation at both was fantastic and the food was some of the best I’ve ever eaten!
Each lodge has it’s own stables and so there are plenty of horses to suit all abilities. From absolute beginners, children, experienced riders or those who haven’t ridden in a while – everyone can be catered for as the riding is tailored to each guest.
I would absolutely recommend Ant’s Lodges to anyone looking for a fun riding safari.
