Accommodation in the Central Drakensberg from ZAR1 250.00 per person sharing including Dinner and Breakfast at The Antbear Lodge.

The Antbear Lodge in the Central Drakensberg is a great base from which to explore this spectacular mountainous region.

The lounge, wine cellar, bar, dining-room and thatched veranda offer generous and comfortable spaces with a 100km long panoramic view of the central and northern Drakensberg.

The Antbear Lodge with its numerous lounges and fireplaces is comfortably furnished and blends rustic charm with old fashioned elegance. The quirky wooden furniture has been hand crafted and adds to the rustic, arty charm evident throughout this homely, cosy lodge

Accommodation is provided in 14 individually styled units, ranging from en-suite double rooms and luxury rooms to family units.

The most unique is the luxury cave which blends seamlessly into the surrounding environment providing privacy and magnificent panoramic views. Popular with honeymooners and those seeking a romantic getaway, The Cave features an en-suite bedroom with Jacuzzi spa bath and adjoining lounge with open fireplace. Large glass doors let the view in while the hanging hammock chairs on the deck are just perfect for relaxing, reflecting and rejuvenating!

The 3 luxury suites offer spacious lounges, large full en-suite bedrooms and wood burning fireplaces. An upstairs loft is suitable for extra guests. The 2 double en-suite guestrooms with Jacuzzi baths include a lounge in the bedroom area and an open wood burning fireplace.

The smallest of the guest rooms is the budget en-suite (with shower) double room which is comfortable and equipped with tea/coffee tray, mini fridge and a complimentary carafe of sherry.

Dinners are a communal, social affair and the delicious meals are prepared using fresh organic vegetables and farm produce. Freshly baked bread, home-made cheese and butter – wholesome country fare!

The lodge is a warm and cosy wedding venue - even in mid-winter. The beautiful scenery will provide the perfect back drop for striking photographs.

If you’re looking for a place where art, beauty and time away are important then Antbear Lodge is worth a second look. We invite you to Antbear Lodge, to share some of our dream, some of our alternative, sustainable and relaxed way of life.
