Located in the Waterberg region in Limpopo these two lodges are completely different so you'll have a difficult choice to make. Ant's Hill has separate lodges that perch on a cliff edge with spectacular views whilst Ant's Nest is the original homestead with classic verandahs and extensive lawns with large pool. If you're not a horsy person then don't worry, nor were we but certainly a gentle ride on horseback surrounded by zebras was a unique memory.

Ok, admittedly this is not cheap and probably, if you are very lucky, a once in a lifetime experience. However if you have deep pockets or are lucky to be invited this truely is an amazing way to see different parts of South Africa and beyond. Reminiscent of a gone by era these beautifully restored carriages with wooden finishes throughout transverse the countryside stopping off for safaris and other cultural excursions.
