The visit to Antbear was built up with anticipation! I travel to this area often With my hiking groups, but had not stayed at this particular lodge before. On arrival we were met by the manager and shown our quarters! We were tired after a long drive from St. Lucia. Dinner was greta and we appreciated the personal touches Andrews... More

Having booked accommodation at the very last moment at Antbear Lodge, my daughter and i was surprised to find that we were graciously received and at short notice. Our hosts were accommodating and the service was such that i would recommend the place to anyone else-in fact i have already done so. I had experienced a rather traumatic time and... More

We sdtayed two nights in Antbear Guesthouse and had a lovely and very big room with a great view. The whole furniture is handmade, very individual woodwork, which makes it very homelike. The view is amazing! You can enjoy the sunset from your room or the garden in front of it. It´s a peaceful place to stay. We liked it... More

We stayed in a lot of different places in SA over 4 weeks, but this was the best! It's quite unique and yet extremely comfortable. Our little house reminded me forcibly of a hobbit's. The woodwork alone is incredible never mind the stained glass in the front door and the mosaic on the wall of the shower. I absolutely loved... More

We spent two night in this amazing guest house with extraordinary decorated rooms. The room we had ( room #4 ) was very spacious. Next to the bedroom there was also a small living room with a couch and fireplace as well as a spacious bath room with shower and big bubble bath. All rooms are decorated with wood work.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Antbear Guesthouse House very much. Nice staff, good and healthy food. Our own private house was great, plenty of wood for the fire place as it was cold. We visited Giant Castle, we really enjoyed this. The road is a bit of a challenge, potholes. Nevertheless we really enjoyed it. The owner and manager... More

We stayed as a family for one night while we checked out the rock art at Giant's Castle and Kamberg. It was the perfect location given our itinerary and I'm glad we found it. We were the only guests at meals (it was a mid-week night in winter). Graham, the manager, was friendly; he ate both meals w/ us. The... More

My wife and I had a wonderful night (away from the kids) in the luxury cave. The room was great with all the little touches like sherry, welcome bottle of sparkling wine, 'his and hers' dressing gowns etc. The view from the cave was amazing, especially watching the sun go down over the Berg. We don't get out much, so... More

My Girlfriend and I had a nice stay. Was a bit pricey. Very good for relaxing. Hiking trails are available, but the Drakensbergs are better. From here you would need to drive to a few places if you want some adventure or to look around. Giants castle and the Midlands R103 are fairly close. Gravel roads, so low cars are... More
