Specialising in family safaris, Ant's Nest and Ant's Hill are both very private
bush homes. They are located on
their own private game reserve in the magnificent, malaria-free Waterberg region of
the Limpopo province in South Africa. Our aim is to provide our guests with a unique
safari experience, offering a wide range of activities to keep everyone entertained,
from the youngest to the oldest, the fittest to those most in need of a rest.
You can enjoy fabulous game viewing in a variety of ways:
- Guided game walks, from a gentle stroll down the plains to a more strenuous hike over rugged hills, which enable you to gain a detailed knowledge of African fauna and flora.
- Game drives in open 4 wheel drive Land-cruisers, which allow you to cover more ground and experience wildlife in a traditional but less energetic way.
- We have almost 90 horses so can offer some of the most exciting game viewing on horseback in Africa, whatever your age or riding ability.
We are very flexible. Your guide will tailor-make each day specifically to suit you and your family - so wake up when you want and enjoy a time of pure relaxation or action packed excitement.

Ant's Nest and Ant's Hill are owned and run by Ant and Tessa Baber. The Baber family were one of the earliest pioneers in the area, settling here in 1886. Of English and Irish descent, they carry with them a love for Africaís wide open spaces, adventure and a passion for its wildlife. In the mid 1990ís Ant and Tessa renovated an old ranch house, which became Antís Nest and, in 2003, built Antís Hill above a spectacular gorge, designing each room to make the most of the magnificent view.
Specialising in a home from home experience, both lodges can either be booked exclusively, to one group at a time, or you can book just one room, making it a wonderful destination for families, riders, honeymooners or just good friends travelling together.
