Antbear Lodge is situated in the Drakensberg region of KwaZulu Natal near to Giants Castle.

Antbear Lodge is one of those few truly pet-friendly places in the Drakensberg. Beautiful, vast views of the Drakensberg with plenty of ground for our dogs to roam. Walk for hours. Your dogs will be happy with lots of dams to swim in and horses to discover. Two of the accommodation units at Antbear Lodge is fenced in so it’s really easy to leave your dog behind if you would like to explore some of the sights where pets are not that welcome. We don’t have a policy that requires your pet to be on a lead (yet upon arrival it is advisable to keep the dog on a lead ) as long as you know your dog won’t chase our sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, cats, horses, donkeys and cows, 2 pigs. Please bring your own dog food, bowls and bedding.

What makes our lodge particularly special is that we offer accommodation in a luxury cave. This is an accommodation unit built under a rock. Glass doors open onto a wooden deck with hammock chairs and a spectacular view of the Drakensberg Mountains. This is a luxury eco experience. The cave is cosy and comfortable with features like a Jacuzzi spa bath and a fireplace and even has rock art on its walls.

We also offer a private dining experience where we set up a table on the deck of your cave and you dine by candlelight under the stars.

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 subscribe as much as possible to the farm to plate concept. We cook all our meals from scratch and have our own organic vegetable garden. We have our own chickens for eggs, cows for milk and bake our own bread and we even make our own cheese.

Antbear Lodge also offers horse trails ideally suited to beginners. Hot air balloon flights that launch from the lawn in front of the lodge and our newest attraction is our star gazing hammock camp where we tell the Zulu stories of the stars.

The area offers a lot with spectacular hiking trails with dramatic views and waterfalls. And then there is the spectacular bushman rock art where you can see some of the best examples in the world.
