Ants Nest is where it all began.

Lying in a natural amphitheater the original homestead, with its wide verandahs, has a classic, relaxed, African atmosphere. A wide variety of game frequents the waterhole in front of the bush home bringing game viewing to your door step. Tessa, who grew up in Kenya, brought a stylish warmth to the colonial house using classic furniture fashioned from local fabrics, timber and stone.
Ants Nest not only enjoys lovely views down the valley but is also surrounded by open plains where horses, rhino and other game frequently graze in extremely close proximity, don’t be surprised to have a rhino grazing 10 meters from your pool lounger. Our team at Ant’s Nest are exceptionally hospitable and will go above and beyond to exceed your expectations to ensure your stay is a memorable and life changing experience.

Wining and Dining

Dinning at Ants is always a memorable experience, our fusion of scrumptious home cooking and fine dining is carefully prepared by our chefs, using the best fresh produce available.  One of Ants highlights is the incredible number of dining rooms we have, you may find lunch laid out in the bush, dinner around a fire in the boma or next to the pool, breakfast on the deck or under a tree in the garden. We pride ourselves in ensuring each meal is in a different location, weather dependent of course.  Guests can eat together in a relaxed atmosphere, alternatively should you be on a romantic getaway or family safari you are welcome to have private dinners.   The chefs can cater for all dietary requirements from Celiacs to vegans as well as simple childrens menus, should you require this. We also serve a selection of excellent South African wines.

Safari Experiences

From horse riding and mountain biking to game drives and guided walks, we have a variety of activities, at Ants, that will appeal to the intimate couple to families alike.

Family Safaris

Ants has got to be one of the most child friendly safari lodges found in Africa,  we will give your children and family a life-changing experience from grandparents right down to babies. Our unique policy is to allow children of all ages to join their parents on all game viewing activities, so you can witness their first encounters with wildlife. At Ants – family safaris are our speciality, we have an abundance of exciting and thrilling safari activities to offer kids of all ages, allowing them to leave with an intimate knowledge of the bush.

Horse Riding and Riding Safaris

Both Ants Nest and Ant’s Hill offer the opportunity for some of the greatest game viewing in the African bush – from horseback. You can canter along open sandy tracks or traverse high ridges with spectacular vistas. The pace can be as fast or relaxed as the riders would like. Often we can get so close to the game that the experience remains unforgettable.

Guided walks and Walking safaris

For those who prefer walking, our guides will lead you through the bushveld on foot. These walks are informative and interactive, enabling you to gain knowledge of African flora and fauna. One can often miss the smaller details of our beautiful environment when on a vehicle or horseback, so guided walks are highly recommended.  These can be in the form of a gentle stroll to, identify insects and birds, track animals through the bush, and learn the medicinal properties of various trees and plants. Alternatively the more energetic traveller can hike over the plains and up impressive gorges. Specialised bug hunts and learning to track game are available for children at both bush homes.
Should you be an avid walker, you may also choose to do a full day walking safari, stopping in a scenic location to enjoy a bush lunch or even a dip in one of our many dams.  In addition to this we offer an incredible river walk through mountains and gorges to view bushman paintings on another private reserve in a very different geographical area of the Waterberg.

Day and Night Game Drives

Our guides will be available to take you out in an open 4×4 Land Cruiser either for morning or afternoon game drives or using a spotlight at night to find elusive nocturnal animals, such as the rare brown hyena, aardvark, bushbaby and porcupine. The advantage of a game drive is that you are able to cover more ground across the reserve. Game drives and walks can often be combined to make game viewing and photography more exciting.
