What makes Antbear Lodge special is that we are offer accommodation in a luxury cave. Glass doors open onto a wooden deck with hammock chairs and an uninterrupted view of the Drakensberg Mountains. This is an upmarket Eco experience. Our farm to fork concept makes dining special too. Antbear Lodge is situated in the in the Central Drakensberg near to Giants Castle on the Midlands Meander. The lodge is our our dream and passion of our sustainable lifestyle and invite you to come and share this experience with us. The highlight is of course the luxury cave with features like a Jacuzzi bath and a fireplace and even has rock art on its walls. We also offer a private dining experience where we setup a table on the deck of your cave and you dine by candlelight under the stars. And guys if you cant get her to say yes here she is just not going to say it. Antbear Lodge is one of those smaller owner run establishments with 15 accommodation units as either Mountain View suites or Garden view suites. Sustainability and responsible tourism are a huge part of the ethos of our lodge. And we try to do just about everything ourselves. It starts with our alternative structures and ends with the cheese on your breakfast table. Every single piece of furniture is made here at the lodge by ourselves. The furniture is artistic and inspiring. We have created huge mosaics, whimsical stain glass windows and even our own wooden hinges. The woodwork alone makes this lodge a destination in its own right. We cook all our meals from scratch and use our own organic vegetable garden. The meals we prepare have our South African twist to them and we cater for all dietary requirements with absolute pleasure. We have our own chickens for eggs, cows for milk and bake our own bread and we even make our own cheese. Conny is passionate about her horses and uses the gentler horse whispering techniques to train them. The out rides on the farm are slow and ideally suited to beginners. We also offer hot air balloon flights that launch directly from the lodge. Flying in this region is perhaps one of the most scenic in the world. The area offers a lot too with spectacular hiking trails with dramatic views and waterfalls. And then there is the bushman rock art where you can clearly see the spirituality of the bushman. The Midlands Merander offers options for cheese tasting, craft beers, quaint coffee shops, arts and crafts and lots of adventure activities. Antbear Lodge is the perfect place to base yourself to explore the Drakensberg and Natal Midlands Come and share some of our paradise.
