Activities at Ant's
Madikwe and the northwest, South Africa
Ant’s has got to be one of the most child friendly safari lodges found in Africa, the friendly staff will give your children and family a life-changing experience from grandparents right down to babies.
Ant’s unique policy is to allow children of all ages to join their parents on all game viewing activities, so you can witness their first encounters with wildlife. At Ant’s – family safaris are their specialty, with an abundance of exciting and thrilling safari activities to offer kids of all ages, allowing them to leave with an intimate knowledge of the bush.
Both lodges are small and intimate which allows them to offer you maximum flexibility, there are no fixed times and staff will tailor your day according to your needs.
Horse riding is at the very heart of Ant’s activities and they are able to cater to a variety of different levels of confidence. Beginners or children under four can have led pony rides and for the more experienced there are horse riding safaris and even full day rides. Being on the horse allows you to get even closer to wildlife than you can typically get in a safari vehicle and this leads to a very intimate wildlife experience.
If you would prefer not to horse ride, then the lodge offers both day and night game drives within the reserve. Join experienced guides as they teach you more about the resident animals and maybe even see some of the more nocturnal species on night game drives.
Those wanting to get even more up close and personal with nature can join their guides on an informative bush walk where they can learn more about the smaller flora and fauna in more hands on detail.
Other activities at the reserve include exciting opportunities like tracking the resident rhino family, fishing, mountain biking, archery or maybe just lounge by the pool and enjoy an indulgent massage.
