  • Amazing stay at Ant's Hill

    Ant's Hill was the nicest accommodation I have ever stayed at. The staff were all amazing. Special shoutout to Bolt, Lucas, and Martha for their amazing service and guiding! The special sundowner experience with the rhinos was one of the most special moments of my life. review
