About Ant's Hill

Ant's hill creates a home from home experience, with a team that provides a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Set in boulders on the edge of a cliff, the lodge offers mesmerising views across the Waterberg, including a waterhole which attracts an array of wildlife. Each cottage is uniquely designed, blending into the bush, with spectacular bathrooms, including heavenly sunken baths and waterfall showers. Guests can also spend hours in the heated pool, admiring the stunning views across the reserve.
