Cian O’Connor on Ants Safari Collection, South Africa

There is a uniqueness to going on a safari on horseback that travelling in a Land Rover can never give you. Here you are at one with the wildlife, with nothing separating you from the huge variety of game that trots or canters alongside you or sometimes just regard you with a baleful eye from the bush – you are never sure if they see you as being one of them or whether they might want to eat you!
