Recommended ‘Family Safari and Holiday’ Properties
The Ant Collection Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill are both very private bush homes. They are located on their own private game reserve in the magnificent, malarie-free Waterberg region of the Limpopo province in South Africa. Their aim is to provide their guests with a unique safari experience; offering a wide range of activities to keep everyone entertained, from the youngest to the oldest, the fittest to the most in need of a rest.
During your stay on at Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill, your children will have a life-changing experience! Their unique policy is to allow children of all ages to join their parents on all game viewing activities, so you can witness their first encounters with wildlife. Ant’s Hill has a selection of wonderful ponies catering to both the novice and experienced child rider. Beginners will be led by a competent guide and riding lessons are also available. The specialised kids ‘ bug and spoor’ walks, although driving in an open 4 x 4 on game drives is always popular. Both lodges have various facilities ideal for kids such as the heated swimming pool, a trampoline, sand pits, a badminton & volley ball net with a selection of toys and books. Children are welcome to join their parents for dinner or special suppers or meal times can be arranged. Due to the relaxed and informal atomosphere, Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill are ideal for families with kids of all ages.
Jaci’s Safari Lodge is situated in the Malaria free Madikwe Big 5 Game Reserve. Jaci’s is popular for the way it caters for families with small children and provides the opportunitty for the perfect family safari as well as introducing children to the wonders and enjoyment of the African Bushveld. Children of all ages are welcome and are especially catered for. Jaci’s family safaris have evolved from the specialised children’s safaris, as there was a demand from parents to see and enjoy their children’s wild experiences first hand rather than when they retunred to the lodge, so they had more parents on the specialised safaris than children! The family safari vehicles are only available at Jaci’s Safari Lodge – this now enables the lodge to put families with children aged 5 – 12 yrs on the game drive with their parents for the morning and evening game drives.
Other than this they also have the fabulous ‘jungle drive’ during the day for the very young children of 4 yrs and under. The ‘Jungle Drives’ go out once a day between the morning and evening game drives. Parents are welcome to join but must behave like children! On the ‘Jungle Drive’ things of interest to children are pointed out, for example toothbrush plants, beetles etc. The information on the drive is aimed at the age/s of the children on the drive. The ‘Jungle Drive’ is included in the children’s special rate.
Children 12 yrs and younger will all enjoy their own dinner together in the dining room and enjoy a child oriented menu with things that they prefer – spagetti bolognaise, hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and off course veges!! Parents can relax with a pre dinner drink whilst their little one’s have a good meal! All meals are prepared fresh at the lodge and dessert is always served!!
Jaci’s is a wonderful way for the entire family to get the most out of their safari adventure!
