The Ant collection was a true sanctuary within the paradise of the Waterberg area where we were treated like both royalty and family by all the staff. Tessa, Gail, Penny and all the others were exceptional people who took every opportunity to make us feel completely pampered. Anything is possible at Ant’s Hill & Nest which not only ensures you...

What an amazing place filled to the brim with character, from the minute you arrive to the moment you leave you discover little nooks and cranny's, little touches that make you go wow. The fresh shortbread at your coffee/tea station in your room, the uniqueness of the bathrooms and the way your room is staged, everything is done to take... More

Our family had a fantastic time. Our kids loved it as did the adults. Ant and his team are as accommodating as any 5 star staff hotel in the world and they are focused on doing for you whatever you want and whenever you want it. Definitely one of the most memorable vacations and one that we will remember fondly... More

We spent 7 nights at Ant's Hill with a 6 and 7 year old and had the most wonderful time ever. The staff so looked after us and built up the kid's confidence every day. We saw loads of animals and the horses were all wonderful and a huge amount of effort was made in finding us the right horses.... More
