South Africa is, without a doubt, one of the world’s natural gems; full of beauty, fauna and flora. The Waterberg region of the province of Limpopo is testimony to much of the natural splendour of this country, and offers visitors a unique peek into this treasure.
Ant’s Hill is a luxurious bush retreat that welcomes visitors from all over South Africa and the world to indulge themselves in the unspoilt wonder and beauty of the Waterberg Biosphere and its fascinating geology. One of the best ways to enjoy this splendour is on foot as this allows visitors to feel the warm sunshine, breathe in the pristine air, smell and feel the plants around them, and hear the calls of the birds above.
These walks are led by an experienced, knowledgeable guide, who is able to answer questions and point out interesting finds. In addition, the guide can help to identify spoor and expand on the medicinal value of certain plants. This adds a lot of value to any South African bushveld experience and makes for lasting memories.
Visitors can choose a restful stroll through the local surrounds, or opt for a more energetic walk through the countryside. The latter will include some challenging gorges and through the virgin beauty of the African plains. Little ones are also privy to guided bug and spoor walks, which will open up to them an entirely new world of nature and all of the excitement to be found in the bush around them.
During a guided walk, visitors should keep an eye out for some of the many antelope species to be found here, including the rare sable. In addition, they may spot warthog, kudu, hartebeest, zebra and some predators and scavengers (such as hyena, caracal, civet and jackal).
