Horse Riding Safaris South Africa
nt’s Nest and Ant’s Hill are two unique bush homes located on a private game reserve set in the beautiful and diverse, malaria free, Waterberg region of the Limpopo province of South Africa. Together, they offer some of the most exciting and quality game viewing and riding on horseback in Africa.
The riding pace on our horseback safaris can vary from fast exciting riding, cantering with giraffe and wildebeest to meandering along high rocky bluffs watching the setting African sun, or quietly riding through a herd of grazing zebra or family of rhino. The reserve is ideal not just for the serious rider looking for a horse riding safari in South Africa, but also their non riding companions or families.
Reserve and Game
Since the Waterberg lies on an intercontinental divergence zone we have a wider variety of flora and fauna than elsewhere in Africa. The diverse topography of the reserve also enables us to naturally sustain over 40 species of game.
Typical riding day
A typical riding day would start with a light breakfast followed by a ride which can vary in length according to the riders. Morning rides are normally 2.5 to 3 hours long after which you will return to the lodge.
