The safari guides are extremely knowledgeable on...More
We last visited 20 years ago, when Ant's Nest was barely a set of twigs. Since then, they have transformed both it and Ant's Hill into one of the most enticing, relaxed, calm and superbly, stunningly beautiful places we have ever visited. And yet they...More
