Ants Nest

Waterberg, South Africa

Prices From: $380

Ant’s Nest is a very special bush home situated on a private game reserve in the magnificent, malaria free Waterberg (3 hours north west of Johannesburg and a couple of hours south of the Limpopo River). Lying in a natural amphitheatre, the original homestead, with its wide verandas, has a classic African atmosphere. The luxurious en-suite rooms accommodate a maximum of only twelve guests.

Ant’s Nest is predominantly booked on an exclusive basis i.e. to one group of guests at a time, although during certain seasons it is booked out to different couples.

There is a 15 metre pool in the garden, ideal for those needing some exercise or great for kids. It is heated all year round. Extensive lawns and beds of indigenous plants surround the pool and home and there is a wonderful, thatched covered chill out spot with sofa beds to relax on during the heat of the day. A wide variety of game frequents the waterhole in front of the house where horses and dogs abound.
