2 nights in Central Drakensberg

The Drakensberg is the name given to the eastern portion of the Great Escarpment, which encloses the central Southern African plateau. Central Drakensberg is paradise for hikers and climbers with various trails and other adventures. 

Giants Castle, Kamberg, Highmoor and Injasuti offer the best collection of bushman rock art in the Drakensberg.  The Main Caves at Giants Castle is a large sandstone cave containing prehistoric San rock art.

an awe-inspiring experience...

Antbear Eco lodge is artistic in style and offers 2 lounges, a wine cellar, a small bar and a dining room.  The lodge also offer the option of private dining where they setup a table on the deck of your cave or your mountain view room and you dine by candlelight under the stars.

This lodge is one of the few pet-friendly places in the Drakensberg. Beautiful, vast views of the Drakensberg with plenty of ground for your dogs to roam and 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 its really easy to leave your dog behind if you would like to explore some of the sights where pets are not that welcome.

Included

Sustainability and responsible tourism are a huge part of the ethos of the lodge and they subscribe as much as possible to the farm to plate concept. All meals are cooked from scratch and the lodge has it's own organic vegetable garden. There are chickens for eggs, cows for milk and they bake their own bread and even make their 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 the newest attraction is a star gazing hammock camp where  Zulu stories are told 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.
