HORSE RIDING SAFARIS SOUTH AFRICA

The Ant Collection offers unique horse riding safaris in South Africa. Our herd of over 90 horses live a blissful life on our private game reserve amongst the wildlife. With the horses seen as a normal part of daily life, our horse riding safari guests can get closer to wildlife than probably anywhere else in Africa. Our private reserve offers an incredible diversity of terrain and scenery as well as wildlife, including many of the rarer species not easily observed elsewhere.
