We have just returned from staying at Ants Hill and Ants Nest and I cant praise these lodges enough. The horse back safaris, the accommodation and food are amazing but what makes these places even more extraordinary is the family feel - nothing is too...More
We stayed at Ants Nest for 7 nights for half term week with an 8 year old and a 12 year old. The whole experience from start to finish was truly magical and we couldn't have asked for anything more. All the staff were amazing,...More

The staff at Ant's Nest deserves a "6" on a five point scale. The team is amazing, they managed to make us feel at home from the first minute we arrived. Safari's be it riding horses (in our case for the first time) or the...More

Ant's Nest would be a better option of the two (because of the drop-offs reference above) but the pool does not have a fence around it. I found the staff to be very family friendly - we had a 3 and an 8 year old with us.

I would also say that some places recommendations on tips are quite high, others less so. Ants is on the high side, but that said we tipped on the high side here as they are so lovely.
