The Antbear Guesthouse, originally built in the 1940's and recently restored by sculptor Bruce Attwood, gets its name from the previous resident, who lived beneath the floor boards before restoration.

Eccentrically refurbished using wood gathered in the surrounding valleys, the Antbear combines comfort with a unique environment.

Using a fifty-year-old outhouse for the basic framework, Bruce created a unique guest-house and home in the rural hinterland of Kwazulu-Natal. The original structure consisted of two traditional rondavels, or thatch covered huts, connected by a stoep, or veranda with an overhead trellis. Perched on a kind of natural platform overlooking the Bushman's river, the house has panoramic views of the Drakensberg Mountains for 160 Km.

Relax, enjoy the view, take walks around the farm and savor the delicious food prepared by Andrew and Conny. There is a lot to be seen and done in the area. Experience some exquisite bushman rock art at Kamberg or drive up to Giants Castle and spend some time in the mountains.

Day walks or overnight stays in the caves or mountain huts are both possible and very worth while. For those of you who are fanatical about trout then you'll find yourself in the right area.

The safari feeling can be found in the Weenen or Spieonkop game reserves and of course the midlands meander offers plenty of opportunity to buy some local craftwork or just have a nice drive.
