Ant’s is a perfect destination for anyone with affection for nature, horses and horse riding. It is a perfect honeymoon destination and great for small groups and families. The 5000 hectare property is a horse lover’s heaven and exploring the reserve on horseback that makes Ant’s truly special. Becoming part of the natural world around you enables riders and horses to wander amongst game such as zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, buffalo and if you’re lucky a white rhino. There are no elephant or lion on the reserve which takes away the worry of being on horseback where dangerous game occurs. All levels of riders can be accommodated from beginner to advanced and there are over 60 horses to match any guest’s personality. Highlights of the day are often the sundowner drinks after a hard few hours in the saddle that are set up and waiting for you at a particular point.
