Discover the many wonders of the Waterberg – the ideal getaway for those wanting to explore in a unique wilderness area of South Africa.
While game drives are a great way to cover large distances in the bush while searching for wildlife, nothing quite beats viewing wildlife through a horse’s ears while on a horseback safari. It’s a unique vantage point and one that offers many benefits.
The Ant Collection’s game census safari is an annual event, but this year it was even more essential to assess the grazer and browser populations on the reserve. The most efficient way to count the game is from horseback, and this year 19 guests and 19 guides took part.
