South Africa Riding Safari


Riding Safari Highlights

  • A holiday to South Africa offers a Malaria free safari experience
  • Seven night specialist riding Safari
  • Opportunity to ride with wildlife such as giraffes and Zebras
  • Stay in the beautiful Ant's Nest.

Riding Safari Overview
Ant's Nest is offering the opportunity for some of the greatest game viewing in the African bush - by horseback safari. You can canter along open sandy tracks or traverse high ridges with spectacular vistas. The pace can be as fast or relaxed as the riders would like. Often you can get so close to the game that the experience remains unforgettable.

Ant's Nest has fit, reliable and responsive horses, providing a choice for both the professional rider and the absolute beginner. (You do not need to have ridden before). The herd of over 70 horses is made up of big thoroughbreds and Arab-boerperd crosses and includes some fabulous children’s ponies. Each ride is led by two competent guides and the emphasis is on safety at all times.
