Plan for slow and decadent three course dinners by candlelight. This Drakensberg accommodation has its own organic vegetable garden and we try to get as much as we can from there. Otherwise we source our ingredients from local suppliers. And if you choose to stay in the luxury cave we also offer a private dining option (weather permitting) where we setup a table on the deck of the cave and you dine by candlelight under the stars. This makes for a lovely romantic and intimate dining experience and is ideal for those proposals, wedding anniversaries and honeymoon stays. Breakfast is served with freshly baked bread and scones and often it becomes a 2 hour affair.
Log fireplaces can be found in each cottage and wood is provided at no cost. The lodge is situated approximately 4 hours from Johannesburg and 2 hours from Durban which makes the Antbear Drakensberg Lodge a great option to stop over on your way to the coast. And its well positioned to explore the best of what the Drakensberg and Natal Midlands has to offer. A few have referred having some of the best views in the Drakensberg.
And there is plenty to do while you are here apart from just kicking back and soaking in the fresh air. We offer hiking trails right here on the farm as well as guided horse trails in the surrounding foothills of the Drakensberg. And then you can go out and explore the area. Kamberg Nature Reserve has by far the best examples of bushman rock art you will see anywhere in the Drakensberg. And there is a whole range of hiking trails at Giants Castle which offers some of the best Drakensberg hiking and views anywhere. And we are located on the Midlands Meander which offers a huge selection of arts and crafts, markets and farm stalls.The Drakensberg region also offers activities that include canopy tours where you slide through the treetops on a cable slide, abseiling, quad bike trails, hot air ballooning, horse rides, white water rafting and so much more. The region is famous for its fly fishing opportunities too.
Antbear Drakensberg Lodge also offers itself as a wedding venue. And a more spectacular location for a destination wedding is difficult to imagine. There is the option for an outdoor wedding overlooking the dam and rolling hills of the Natal Midlands and onto Giants Castle or you can use our chapel. For weddings we give you exclusive use of the lodge and the accommodation. And its affordable with some of the best rates in the Natal Midlands.
So if your looking for a place where art, beauty and time away are important then Antbear Drakensberg Lodge is worth a second look.
