Ant's Hill


Ant’s Hill, sister property to Ant’s Nest is built on the edge of a cliff and offers breath-taking views across the Waterberg. Everything here is geared around the views, from the heated swimming pool, set in boulders on the edge of the cliff, to the main lodge, whose large verandah and deck overhang the gorge, perfect for early morning breakfasts and evening sundowners. On top of all of this, Ant’s Hill overlooks a waterhole frequented by a variety of game.

Blending into the bush, this thatched lodge offers spacious rooms and vast folding doors with each cottage uniquely designed with exotic furniture and brightly coloured African fabrics. The spectacular individual bathrooms offer sunken baths and waterfall showers and the spacious verandahs come equipped with comfortable day beds to relax on in the heat of the day.
