We stayed here for 2 nights during our honeymoon, but wished it could have been longer. We stayed in the luxury cave, which was a great experience. We had everything we needed there, and more, including the most fantastic view. It felt if we were the only ones in the world. They have also arranged a private dinner there for... More

The rooms had rustic wooden furniture but well equipped and very clean with an open fire for the cold nights of Winter. The "honesty" bar was unusual in this part of the World as was the communal dining... More

We spent our 2 year wedding anniversary here and it was amazing. The people were very accomodating and friendly. The luxury cave was absolutely incredible. We loved the attention to detail and the amazing view.

After stumbling across the Antbear luxury cave, I knew that it would be the perfect place to stay after popping the question. Andrew, James and Joan from the lodge were amazing and helped me in anyway they could to make our stay a truly... More

After 35 kms of potholes and gravel from the N3, you reach Antbear Guesthouse, but it is definitely worth the trek.

The thatched cottages are clean, spacious and comfortable, with nice amenities like fireplace and jacuzzi.... More
