Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill

Ant’s Hill & Ant’s Nest in the Waterberg region of Limpopo Province, is a destination our guests return to year after year. They love the feeling of being in the private home of exceedingly gracious and interesting hosts. This independently-owned and run lodge is situated on the edge of a gorge with views overlooking the surrounding bush.

There is good year-round game viewing at Ants Hill/Nest (excluding elephants and large predators) and the main activities are open-vehicle game drives and horseback safaris. Every day is a new adventure, whether it be game walks, bush picnics, or participating in a game census. Children are welcome and will have a fabulous time.

Stone and wood rooms are built for comfort, with the quirky design making them a fun home away from home in the bush. The accommodation varies from standard rooms to private cottages – the Hideaway Cottage is a romantic house, with an indoor and outdoor shower, and a private pool. Each house is hosted by a top guide which adds immensely to the experience.
