Ant's Nest Lodge is the original homestead restored, with its wide verandas and a classic African atmosphere.
Accommodation is in six luxurious en suite rooms accommodating a maximum of twelve guests. All rooms have a stylish warmth using classic furniture fashioned from local fabrics, timber and stone.
Experienced guides take guests out in an open 4x4 Land Cruiser either for a morning or afternoon game drive or using a spotlight at night to find elusive nocturnal animals, such as the rare brown hyena, aardvark and porcupine.
For those who prefer walking, guides take guests through the bushveld on foot. These walks are informative and interactive, enabling guests to gain knowledge of the flora, fauna and animals resident on the reserve. Whilst these walks can be in the form of a gentle stroll, the more energetic can hike over the plains and down impressive gorges.
Ant's Nest also specialises in horseback safaris. Guests who are purely interested in riding may spend up to 6 hours a day in the saddle during morning and afternoon rides, whilst those not as enthusiastic can enjoy a mixture of riding as well as other activities such as guided walks or game drives. Guests are always welcome to join in on any management activities on the reserve such as game capture and relocation, treating injured animals, burning firebreaks and conducting game census on horseback.
