Climate: Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill are located in the Waterberg region of the Limpopo province in the northern part of South Africa. This beautiful area is malaria-free and at an altitude of 4,500 feet above sea level offers a wonderful temperate climate and can be visited all year round.
Summer (November to March) – the days can get quite warm (up to 28-32 degrees on average) but it is a dry heat. We do get summer rainfall, normally in the form of thunder storms. These rarely affect activities and are usually in the evening, however, the African climate is still always unpredictable.
Autumn (April to May) – days can still be warm but the evenings cool down. Average day time temperature 22-28 degrees. Evenings 10-15 degrees.
Winter (June to August) – days are warm (temperatures in the mid-twenties) evenings and early mornings very cold with average early morning temperatures 5-12 degrees. It very rarely rains at this time when the bush is golden and dry.
Spring (September, October) – days start getting hotter, evenings and mornings could still be crisp but not as cold. A very slim chance of rain. On occasion we can get very hot days.
Medical: The whole area is malaria-free and since we have excellent local doctors with one of the countries’ leading paediatricians living nearby, the Waterberg is one of the safest places to visit in Africa. You will only need to ensure your tetanus injections are up to date. Tick bite fever can be contracted from pepper ticks in the summer months. This is easily treated ~ please consult us for symptoms. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT ANYONE VISITING US HAS FULL TRAVEL AND MEDICAL INSURANCE.
Up-to-date Tetanus and Hepatitis injections are required for some countries, but recommended for all.
Both Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill have a number of staff trained as First Responders, however it is vital to have full travel and medical insurance for emergencies. Some hospitals and air rescue may require up-front payment. Guests will be required to sign an indemnity before going out on any of the activities.
Money: We accept all major currencies (USD, GBP, and Euro). If using U$D, please make sure to bring new notes as most countries do not accept old notes (with smaller heads). We accept credit cards, but only Visa and MasterCard, and please note that there is an additional 3% charge should you wish to pay with your card.
Electricity: We have large round-pin plugs with AC 220V voltage at all lodges. Plugs vary from country to country, so do travel with a set of adapters to ensure your ability to charge and use your appliances on safari.
Water: The water is safe to drink at both lodges, but if you would prefer bottled water the staff will be happy to accommodate your wishes. Please make sure to inform the lodge staff of any dietary requirements or allergies prior to travel.
Gratuities: Tipping is not required at any of the lodges, but if you feel the service was deserving of a tip we do have a guide line in the room information for you.
