Overview

The Antbear Guest House is situated in the foothills of the KwaZulu Natal Drakensberg in South Africa. This guesthouse is an ideal place to base yourself while you discover the Drakensberg region of KwaZulu Natal South Africa.

We invite you to spend time here and share some of our dream. We like to think that the Antbear is a place for feeding your soul and rekindling your spirit. Built in the 1940's the quaint and charming cottage puts its arms around you and reminds you that there are things more important than everyday life.
The Antbear Guesthouse is a thatched, whitewashed cottage built high on a natural platform overlooking the Bushman's River and Giants Castle. This cottage is a bit off the beaten track and is more of an insider tip than just another bed and breakfast.

We cater for small intimate groups and never have more than 10 guests at a time. It's a laid back, lovingly cared for kind of place where you feel a sense of happiness and peace. Honeymoon stays turn into anniversary commemorations just as guests become friends. Even foreign tourists return for a second and third taste.
The name "Antbear" comes from its previous resident who lived under the floorboards before its restoration just a few years ago. It's filled with gorgeous hand crafted furniture, wonderful wooden sculptures and a seemingly never ending collection of artistic aspects to discover.

Plan for slow and decadent dinners by candlelight prepared by your hosts Andrew and Conny. Sometimes it's a Moroccan spread including a genuine Moroccan tagine prepared on wood coals or maybe it's a surprise of just how delightful Chinese food can be. Breakfast is served with freshly baked bread and scones and often it becomes a 2 hour affair.

There is plenty to do in the area too. Walks in the Drakensberg mountains, visits to bushman paintings, horse trails though a private game reserve, canoe trips, canopy tours and the Midlands Meander to mention but a few.

So if your looking for a place where art, beauty and time away are important then Antbear Guesthouse is worth a second look.
