Ant's Nest horseback safaris
Did you know?
Ant's Nest is named after Anthony Baber, one of the earliest pioneers in the Waterberg Wilderness region.
Ant's Nest is a luxury game lodge in Limpopo's Waterberg Wilderness region that is famed for its wild and wonderful horseback safaris. Set in a game reserve with open plains and rugged mountain slopes, at Ant's Nest you're likely to see zebra, wildebeest, eland and, perhaps, rhino.
Depending on your group, you can either opt for a fun-filled family horseback safari, an action-packed group safari or a romantic honeymoon safari. Ant's Nest is happy to tailor your horse riding safari to suit you. You can decide when you want to get up and for how long you want to ride.
You'll definitely enjoy the food here. Ant's Nest offers long lazy brunches in the shade of ancient trees, starlit dinners and lunches out in the middle of the bush.
Accommodation at Ant's Nest is in a lovingly restored farmhouse that was the original home of the Baber family, settlers in the area over a century ago. There is a wide veranda, one of the biggest beds you've ever seen and a lovely pool set in a gorgeous garden. You can also stay at Ant's Hill, which is higher up in the mountains and boasts incredible views. Ant Baber and his wife Tess run both the lodges and have many colourful tales to share.
Horseback safaris are not the only way to enjoy Ant's Nest. The lodge also offers guided safaris in an open 4x4. You can also take a guided game walk and learn more about the fauna and flora of the area.
