The views at Antbear are breathtaking and well worth the drive to get there - and the rooms are very comfortable (we really enjoyed the log fires in each bedroom as well!). At mealtimes there is a chance to talk with Phumlani - an amazing and charming man, with a fascinating life story and a very gentle & modest attitude to life. Conversations with him were amongst the highlights of our trip to South Africa. Andrew is also interesting to talk with, and the other guests are often good value too. The only minor gripe is food - the breakfasts are excellent (really excellent!!) but for dinner the choice was nil and the quantities quite small - plus the food was more average home cooked food than the range of culinary delights described in the website. It's certainly very edible, but 3 days in a row soup to start with and it all tasted much the same........don't come for the food but do come and enjoy the serene calm, lovely views and interesting conversations
